I Wish I Wasnt Black by Mark AlanThis book is one mans ambition to show the American people, that people of color are not the enemy. To hopefully provide a vision for people of color, to rise above the situation their born into. Using a mixture of poetry and real-world perception. Mark Alan brings you a book about being black in America.
This isn’t a book about self-racism. A book of a man trying to supersede expectations placed on black men without choice. Why does society negatively view black men regardless of their educational and social status? Is black America to blame for some of the backlashes they receive? Why does the color black automatically cause people of color to have an unfair playing field in the eyes of the world? These are my thoughts on something we need if we are going to overcome these obstacles in life.
Black Americans are shot by police at a higher rate in America. The numbers show we are shot twice as much as whites. Figures also show that twenty percent of people that are shot by police are unarmed. Half of them were black. All of those black men that survive being shot by police say the same phrase.
“I wish I wasn’t black.”

Being a millennial clearly has its high points. As late '80s and '90s kids, we benefited from growing up during one of the wealthiest, most successful, and safest times in American history. As a girl, I feel lucky that I grew up during a time when not even my grandparents expected me to skip college to become a wife and mother. But there's one aspect of millennial life that sometimes makes me wish I was born in a different generation: perfectionism. Almost every millennial is touched by perfectionism in some way. There are a lot of theories about why millennials are so much more prone to anxiety than previous generations.
Im home alone again And you're out, hanging with your friends So you say, somehow I know its not quite that way Its getting pretty late, and you havent checked on me all day When I called, you didn't answer Now I'm feeling like you're ignoring me I wish, that you were home, holding me tight in your arms I wish, I could go back, to the day before we met and skip my regret. CHORUS I wish I wasn't in love with you So you couldn't hurt me It just ain't fair the way you treat me No you dont deserve me Wasted my time thinking bout you and you ain't never gone change I wish I wasn't in love with you so I wouldn't feel this way. When you touch me my heart melts and everything you did wrong I forget so you play me and take advantage of the love that I feel for you Why you wanna hurt me so bad I believed in you thats why im so mad now Im drowning in dissapointment, and it's hard for me to even look at you I wish, that you were home, holding me tight in your arms. Said you care about me, But from what I see I ain't feeling that so I disagree Gave you all my love and understanding Yet you treated me like your enemy So leave me alone, don't want nothin from ya Just go back where you came from This house is no longer your home You're not welcome no, no, no, moreeeeeee.
