Black Women: Where Do We Stand in The Pool of Isms?

When sexism meets racism and gives birth to the negro bitch.

I have searched the world for a home,
but I always found it on lease.
“Welcome,” they announce,
as I sweep the room and make my bed,
as I present a burnt sacrifice
as I begin to lay my head and seek rest,
I am reminded that I am nothing but a tenant,
my dignity as payment.

And I wonder, where do black women lie in the midst of all the -isms?

66% Nigerian, 33% Ghanaian, 1% vacuum. There are a million women in me that question the world.
