about

The title of this song is B.W.R which is an acronym for "Black WOMAN Rant. It is about the daily personal issues of myself as a black woman although while singing a love song.

lyrics

Maybe it's the way you move,
Perhaps it's the way you talk
It could be the way you make me feel
'Cause you let me know it's real
you remind me of this black girl magic i got
when i seem to forget it all, oh

You're a man
You make me feel protected
Like i'm the type of woman
with privilege
who dies from old age
Rather my melanin
That i steady be living in
Like i won't be another Sandra, Tanisha, Yvette, Alesia by the drop of a pen

But how can you guard me?
You can hardly fend for yourself, no
There's white men, white men everywhere tryna peel the skin off our bones
But here you are ...
Tryna save me
But mister i don't need no saving
Just respecting'
Want you listenin
And to be heard
And seen
And loved
As much as the men
Who i love hard for
And fight for
That look like me
Like me
