"LABELS"

I'm
radical
uppity
bourgeoisie
revolutionary.

I'm a brotha
both conscious
and lost
a field nigga
sneaking inside the house
when nobody's looking
praying I wont get caught.

I'm socially schizophrenic
with multiple personalities of
Uncle Tom
Nat Turner
Fred Hampton
Stepin Fetchit.

Angry
black
lazy
militant
sambo
eating fried chicken
and watermelon
sitting at home
raising my fist yelling
FUCK THE SYSTEM
while I'm getting fucked
by the system
and eventually becoming
a part of the system.

I invoke
slave minds
demanding reparations
just so called negro
mis educated
like Carter G.
organize communities
like a street pimp
respecting beautiful black queens
while playing them for fools
portray them as
female dogs and
gardening tools
on music videos.

I fight for civil right
performing Amos-n-Andy Minstrel Shows
Utilizing Marcus Garvey's Soul to
uplift the race
waving american flag
dancing like Mr Bojangles
Grooving to James Brown's
"Say It Loud; I'm Black and I'm Proud."
covered in blackface like Al Jolson.

I'm a nigger's nigga
Afro
African American
pickanniny
pretty boy
half breed
mulatto
darky
enjoying white meat
on thanksgiving.

Expressing love
to beautiful Black Woman
too stupid
too short
lacking chemistry
for them to love me.

So I wanna kill whitey
committing black on black crimes
let these peckerwood
hoodrats know
I only consult
with my own kind.

Lounging in my
suburban enclave
throwing up gang signs
to my homies
on lock down.

Where my Alpha's
Where my Kappa's
Where my Sigma's
Where my Que's

Where those Mandingo fools
utilizing tools
in corporate boardrooms
staring at each other
asking, "HEY WHERE THE WHITE WOMEN AT?"
Leaving Jezebels feeling defenseless
against daddy macks
with bad credit scores.

They say I give praises to Allah
'cause all I need is Jesus
and 40 oz of OLD E from
neighborhood liquor store.
To get my swerve on
after getting my praise on.

Later hanging with
Gangsters
Pranksters
selling dime bags
and not anyone believe
I'm undercover......closet perfectly hidden
because that type of love
strictly forbidden.

To achieve true equality
and just want young kids to follow me
because I'm not a role model
I'm just...
I'm just...
I'm just.......ME!!!!

However for most of you
I can never be
which is why you attempt
to legislate a
narrow version of black identity
ignoring the fact
within our melanin
we do have diversity.

But most will see
what they choose to see
and believe
what they choose to believe.

To them
I'm nothing but
radical
uppity
bourgeoisie
revolutionary.

A Brotha
both conscious
and lost
a field nigga
who sometimes sneaks
inside the house
when nobody's looking
praying I wont get caught.

Where labels
instead of love
is what we're
constantly being taught.
