Double consciousness,

Double burden.

Work twice as hard,

Get half as far.

Am I a pioneer?

Am I a token?

Pure, unique, full Blackness;

Totalizing, stereotyping, structured Whiteness.

Assimilate or separate?

Excel or rebel?

Resignation or Liberation?

Life or Death?

Destiny or Agency?

Black or White?

True or False?

Both.

And Everything in Between.
