WOOOOOOWWWWW ! ! THIS SONG IS TIGHT!I'm definitely digging this song because it's talking about the skin of African Americans/Af r i c a n s ( d e c e d e n t Africans)of LOVING the skin that we are in and questioning the fact of why the color of BLACK seems to be a "BAD" thing in the world that we live in! This song is recognizing that and appreciating that black skin is BEAUTIFUL and that there should be NO shame in the skin that you're in! Don't be afraid to embrace and to express the truth!Love this song!

It just caught my ear, in the 3rd verse "Black is the color of my true love's hair" is the name of a famous Irish song... wonder if Talib Kweli's a trad fan
