(don’t call me) Nigger

A black panther party graphic that reads "uncle sam wants you nigger" and "hell no! america is the black man's battleground."

To be addressed as Nigger is to be
removed from history — with blood
on the book that the wind has blown
away to the face of a Nigger.
In your face a Nigger will smile but
can’t walk a mile when the…
placards are up!
A Nigger will compromise autonomy
for a pot of porridge to appease his
insatiable appetite — to fill up the
void just as Judas his patriot.
A Nigger is a killer of the poor
righteous teacher, willing to pull the
trigger on the dreamer; poised to make
a Stephen out of every believer!
A Nigger plays for the gain
hooked up on the pain — a bait
to fish the Messiah.
A Nigger is here… there…
tapping behinds, doing the belly dance —
everywhere he goes the South wind
never ceases to blow his emptiness;
because his skin is the color of crime;
an identity of mayhem; of chaos to his own community —
and a slap to the golden face of his mutilated heritage.
A Nigger is always up for slaughter
before the bidder, and peddlers of
his damaged history.
A Nigger wasting time watching the
hours go to waste; counting the days in
his time walking pass, as he’s doing time,
waiting for the clock to fall off
the walls to be free — free ass what?
An 007; the hood masquerade
running errands to live and let you
badge your murder the schoolboy way.
A Nigger is a depraved prisoner
but thinks he’s saved in the hands of
Father Massa, and makes his run in
his name — always admiring shiny
object hanging down his neck
and dangling on his wrist. He’s cast
his conscience into the lake of fire;
with all pleasure watching his soul
goes up in a burning flame as…
he’s been dehumanized
with rewards behind the walls
of snitches for richies… because the
knowledge of self has long departed him…
left him swinging from a Cercis tree,
…a strange fruit for us to bear!
