Mickey Guyton Has a New Song Called "Black Like Me"

MICKEY GUYTONreleased her song"Black Like Me"yesterday, and the timing is perfect. Not only is the message real, but it's something we NEED to hear and, hopefully, process. 

She co-wroteit but it's definitely her story. Here's the opening verse: "Little kid in a small town . . . I did my best just to fit in . . . Broke my heart on the playground, when they said I was different."

Then it moves to the present, and the sad reality we're in: "Now, I'm all grown up and nothin' has changed. Yeah, it's still the same." But to her credit, she ends it with her head held high and this declaration: "And I'm proud to be black like me."
