African-Americans are as valuable as copper
pennies were in 1752
and like the penny,
African-Americans were drained of
If you see a penny on the floor, you wouldn’t pick it up
because it was worth less,
but if it was a quarter or a dime you would probably pick it up
because it's worth more.
Just like how the slaves are pennies,
and how their masters are the quarters and dimes.
But what makes a white man that whips other HUMAN BEINGS:
a quarter or a dime?
But these quarters and dimes don't care about
the precious pennies that cry and they want to die at night.
In the world of loose change, we try so hard to pick out the pennies from the mix.
Purge our pockets.
At the end of the day we’re still coins and
we still have value no matter what the cost is.
Before the penny had Abraham Lincoln
the face of the penny was a lady with long luscious hair
and she represented freedom,
and this was in slavery times.
It’s crazy how the only coin they had was a symbol of freedom.
It's also crazy how they bought our freedom with a freedom coin.
Then in 1909 Abraham Lincoln became the face of the penny
and he abolished slavery in America.
He did something great for the slaves
and they gave him a colored coin
and the colored coin is worth less
than the other coins…
So ask yourself: Would you pick up a penny off the floor?
If not, why not?
Is it because of the color of penny?
Do you even see it there?
Is it noticed? Or would you just step on it and go past?
Just like how the slaves were when they were picking cotton in the bushes to make your clothes
Just how the slave wasn't noticed as a person
Just like how the slaves were stepped on, kicked, spit on, and hanged for something they didn't
do or because they tried to get away
Get away from all those things
Just trying to get away from all the danger.
All from the white man's anger.
So ask yourself, again: Would you pick up a penny off the floor?
