BeInG ChIcAnO

BEING CHICANO/A IS AN EASY THING.
MAYBE FOR OTHER CHICANOS IT IS
BUT FOR ME ITS NOT.
EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE I GET TREATED LIKE I'M A WET BACK,
WELL WHAT IF I AM?
THESE PUTO/AS DON'T KNOW ME
CHICANOS KILLING CHICANOS IS WHAT THEY WANT.
BEING CHICANO/A IS NOT KILLING YOUR OWN RAZA.
IT'S DEFENDING YOUR RAZA.
I'M DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CHICANO/AS
I'M NOT IN A GANG, BUT I DO KNOW HOW TO DEFEND MYSELF
I'M A CHICANA AND I WILL DIE AS A CHICANA.
C.4.L= CHICANO/A FOR LIFE!
IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT CHICANO IS
IT'S BEING MEXICAN/AMERICAN

I give you props!

It takes a lot out of a person to stand up for themselves against society today. I just want to let you know keep your head up, I can relate in way. Im native American and EVERYBODY thinks we are all drunks and are uneducated. Minorities are always deemed to be the lowest class, nothing we can though. Just keep fighting the cycle and sooner or later we can equal in society and have to fight no more
