Gurgle, gurgle, gurgle, gurgle….(black lives being choked out)….gurgle, gurgle..
(‘Ho, HUM’…white folks lookin’ at their fingernails…’oh, we care,MAMMY)… gurgle, gurgle, blub, blub, blub
It is now being reported that the stories of
in the Superdome, rampant NO mayhem, baby rape and cannabalism among the “refugees” turned out to be lies, by the lying liars that make and break the news.
Why would such pooh be circulated?
Who circulated it and why?
Who benefitted, in whose interest would it be to demonize black people – one more time?
Turn the victim into the criminal, blame the victim, use the race of the victim to blind and stymie the faint humanity stirring in good ole Americans. Feed ’em that ole time religion of ‘niggas cookin’ folks like gumbo’ to diminish the sense of responsibility to and kinship with “THOSE PEOPLE.”
Crimes against black people are treated as crimes against chattel; pay careful attention to the inaction, the failure to link genocide against niggas with genocide in Iraq; note for the umpteenth time, that there are no ‘John Brown’ or ‘Patrick Henry’ white folks who will go the last mile with niggas.
The man is ladling niggas into our own gas ovens – prisons, crack, whitification aka gentrification…and white folks ain’t even talking about do-nothing marches. Just roll their eyes and say ‘poor baby.’ The terms, ‘White’ and ‘ALLY’ aren’t even in the same lexicon.
I’ve met maybe two or three white folks who are willing to take truth wherever it leads; the overwhelming majority decide when a conversation moves from talk to the precipice of commitment – they take that one step backward. I’m not fooled by their righteous attachment to “nonviolence.” You let somebody take some shit out there house and you’ll see one violent muthafucka. White people have built a Great Wall around THEIR privilege, and elaborate moats and drawbridges to justify not sharing that privilege with their magical knee-grow.
When justice, Justice and only JUSTICE motivates and animates one’s being – a nigga KNOWS!! But when cowardice, selfishness, brutality, callousness, racism and cunning rule – a nigga can also LEARN to read that shit.
But I gotta give big props to white folks for their superior TRICKNOLOGY. I been fooled fo’ a long time. My ex-wife was fucking Meryl Streep, baby. Had my nose open like I-5. Oscars to all you MF’s.
Niggas are actors, too, like the Last Poets said, but more to the point is we are addicts. We’re addicted to numbing the pain of the Rodney King aSs wHipPing we be takin’ spiritually, emotionally and physically 24/7. The pain of existence for an awake nigga is unbearable, thas why so many of us sleep, nod, do the “Malt Liquour Shuffle.”
The Freeslave is tired, ya’ll. Portland Babylon is too hard on a nigga. Niggas here get bleached so much you can’t even see their color by their deeds. Spiritual death, daily niggerization, marginalzation, self castration…I’m a mammal who needs air living under fucking water in this shitty city – I can’t breath here. Truth is hard to find cuz 90% of the muthafuckas I meet REQUIRE lies to function. Portland’s too Stepford for me.
So, go ahead; ready your noose for me. I might even voluntarily stick my neck in it.
But on the real, I’d rather see you swing, zombie.
Pass the salt and I’ll take some mo’ gumbo.
