She's not dumb she's book smart. Always got her nose in some science project, literary analysis, applying for scholarships. Never the streets, she failed that class. math too, but that's a talk for another day. She's, not dumb she's book smart, doesn't know how to drive a car or clock in for work, but she managed to memorize all the elements on the periodic table. Poor little black girl can't read a map to save her life but knows how to twist her words to make you feel something to make you understand the workings of all the systems our world is made of. Maybe she is street smart, just not in the way you want her to be.
