Nigga’ Knock, Nigga’ Not

Nigga’ Knock, Nigga’ Not

– written 16 August 2013 by Renae’ (Satire) Harrison

Nigga’, Nagger, Nigger,

verbal distortions of human figures;

Derivative of Latin descent,

The French accommodated it,

Thus spawned into the English language.

Now modern day society embraces it,

unequipped with the moral compass that teaches not to equate it with;

Status or characteristics,

unequivocal in verbiage,

a cliche’ to those who abuse it,

and typical of the rap artists who proudly quote the term in their music.

And still, I disprove,

stand against, and refute,

the venomous influence on the society [we] help to pollute;

By tolerating the flamboyance of an indebted artist,

who so proudly represents which hood [he] thinks is the hardest;

Flashing pocket change earned from a career glitch,

and rap videos that promote honor in being “hood rich.”

Man, this shit makes me sick!

Still, this shit is childish,

that’s typical of a [young] nigga’,

lacking profound mental capacity,

thus becoming the [dumb] nigga’;

The flashy type with empty pockets,

we call him the [broke] nigga’;

Convinced that music and sports is [the] way to wealth,

[You] betta’ cut those nooses before they choke you,

NIGGA’.

Talks behind your back, but smiles in your face,

“Man, that nigga’ fake.”

Can’t back up what he says, then call him a [bitch] nigga’,

and when he speaks his mind,

we say he’s a [real] nigga’.

Yet, I don’t understand the world’s obsession,

‘Cuz’ truth is, the race cursed with this term ensues its own regression;

Enabling its culture to culminate the worst form of oppression,

and in the hearts of those who desire to learn,

there’s still a lesson.

So, when caucasian folks say it – nigga’,

don’t be so quick to rush to anger;

Make the choice to walk away from the new world order of social experiments,

because greeting each other as “My Nigga’,”

is not an acceptable term of endearment.

[They] say [you] act like idiots ‘cuz’ [you] play [their] game,

when you should ride on a high horse

because Nigga’, Nagger, Nigger is not your name.

The term “nigger” was meant to strip the colored man of his identity,

meant to keep him from thinking on his own,

thus destroying him mentally;

Existing in oppression is no way to live,

[WE] are not the noun, the verb, nor the adjective!

You see, the term “nigger”

spelled with one “g” means black in Spanish;

Black is not a natural color of skin,

even those who appear purple are just a dark ass brown;

Hence [we] will NEVER be black, despite our 50 different shades of melanin,

therefore we’re not black, nor African, we’re merely Americans!

I just wanted to tell the world how ignorant, and foolish people sound

when they say it – NIGGA’

Huh, well go figure.

And if you’re offended, I’m not worried because it means I’ve done my job,

because it’s not about what people say, it’s what you answer to;

Nigga Knock, A Nigga’ – I AM NOT,

but if either is what [you] answer to,

then you’re still a lost soul,

and the joke is on you.
