A people that have overcome great struggles, though others try and keep them down. People say that they use racism as a crutch but in reality they don't know what it means to be black, they don't understand how they are still discriminated against. A people that use the word "cracker" in reference to how white people would crack a whip at the black slave, and say its racist, and don't understand that they use the word because white have been using the word "nigger" for years. A people that still have to prove themselves to people who think of themselves as higher beings. People who have done so many great things but are still treated like trash. A people with a great determination, who wont stop fighting for equality.
