“Be-nign, be you, be mom's mean pie, be little black sambo with bad hair.” -It's Your World. Common (Feat. Bilal & Pops)
The beginning of this line is self explanatory, but I want to focus on “be little black sambo with bad hair”.
If you don’t know, the story of Little Black Sambo is an old children’s book. In this story, Sambo survives over a large group of very hungry tigers. Sambo had some brand new colorful clothing on and he had to give his clothes, shoes, and umbrella to four tigers so they won’t eat him. The tigers were so jealous and conceited and began to chase each other. While they were doing that, Little Black Sambo recovers all of his belongings.
We will face many challenges in life, but with these challenges; there is always a way to prevail. And not only prevail, but do it with class and dignity. The universe works in a way that, if we do good and mean good…good will have to come back to you. And that’s exactly what happened to Little Black Sambo.
To my people who are doing good, just watch and see the universe do you good!
