What does this mean to you?

My skin is black
My arms are long
My hair is woolly
My back is strong
Strong enough to take the pain
inflicted again and again
What do they call me
My name is AUNT SARAH
My name is Aunt Sarah

My skin is yellow
My hair is long
Between two worlds
I do belong
My father was rich and white
He forced my mother late one night
What do they call me
My name is SAFFRONIA
My name is Saffronia

My skin is tan
My hair is fine
My hips invite you
my mouth like wine
Whose little girl am I?
Anyone who has money to buy
What do they call me
My name is SWEET THING
My name is Sweet Thing

My skin is brown
my manner is tough
I'll kill the first mother I see
my life has been too rough
I'm awfully bitter these days
because my parents were slaves
What do they call me
My name is PEACHES

  • Its a look at 4 different shades of women who all have some sort of hardship that are all different from one another,But the one thing they have in common is they are all black. the song is by nina simone and it is called four women.

  • Guess its about 4 seperate women of different races/colors and how they see themselves or perhaps how they feel others see them.

    Sorry...not impressed by it tho.

  • I'm sorry but you women on here say some ignorant ass shit,And Its not a religion question its a belief question,Im asking what do you believe this means? or what does it mean to you? Its really not that hard to read it and see if it means anything to you or not,If it does answer if it doesnt leave your ignorant comments on the new questions page before you answer one of mine
