I’m Dominican But I’m Black

I live in New York where I can’t even fit in,

because of the tone of my skin I can be despised.

All the eyes looking at me like who you are? why you

here? 

I’m too White for the Blacks, too Black for the

Whites. And the other races don’t even like, what I believe in. 

Why my religion matters? For me to fit in. 

Why the color of my skin hurts your eyes so much?


I know my accent sounds fake, I know it’s not like

yours,

but let me tell you something now I’m also from

New York. 


I’m Dominican But I’m Black


And I will never denied it.

I’m not racist I’m just saying things I’ve faced in this

wild.

I’m Dominican But I’m Black

Just Remember that; I’m Dominican But I’m Black

And I will never stop;  I’m Dominican But I’m Black

Until you memorized that;  I’m Dominican But I’m

Black

And you need to normalize that;  I’m Dominican But I’m Black
 

I’m Dominican But I’m Black 

I’m Dominican But I’m Black
 I’m Dominican But I’m Black
 I’m Dominican But I’m Black
