“The Negro”

Never saw him.
Never can.
Hypothetical,
Haunting man.

Eyes a-saucer,
Yessir bossir,
Dice a-clicking,
Razor flicking.

The-ness froze him
In a dance.
A-ness never
Had a chance.

--James A. Emanuel--

We now have to cope/deal/etc. with his distant descendants, who pan us for 'acting white', all of the while using the 'N' word to praise their oh so backward/stupid groupies, who buy their videos ad naseum...

Type in any so called popular gangsta rapper's name...

Revolutionary poetry is good for our struggle, it spreads a message, it teaches, even Angola African fused revolutionary poetry into their struggle. So it's good. Rappers are good and bad is a sense, real rap evolved from Africa, the battling with words in Africa were done with fists, warriors competed to make each other stronger, but today's rap is just an offshoot and very weak. Nas is great though, so is Tupac despite his using the gangsta and n-word, Tupac was a revolutionary at heart he was just attacked due to counter-intelligence and framed with rape conspiracy. Most rappers have had their images tarnished who spoke nothing but truth or had their careers stunted, so now many of them don't dare to speak truth anymore.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
