"Protect black women"

Why should there be a need for protection?

The mantra "protect black women" has been bastardized,

Said Lovelyti who criticized,

She shared her opinion of an intention fantasized,

So much so it should be baptized,

"Protect black women" they say,

"Protect black women" they pray,

Not all black women in one bouquet?

Would it be just if it should stay?

Severed hearts from disappointment,

Meetings start to prevent assent,

Injustices so odd,

Cases left broad,

Beating, pills spread and all sorts of evil,

Something changed or stayed causing upheaval,

Are all safe?

Is there a fail-safe?

From the protection ideology,

Seen as a careless apology,

For the lack of respect in all situations,

And unequal understanding for all creations,

"The most disrespected" they say?

"The backbone" they betray?

Bothered the other YouTubers and more,

Paris Milan, Real Talk With Yanie and I Am Eloho,

Who cares in it's self?

But the black woman herself.
