    ARE YOU WITH IT
    ````````````````````````````

    Are you with self-hate

    Behind security gates

    Are you with it...

    Are you with nappy head ~

    Ain't tryin' to go straight

    Can you dig it...

    Are you wit' eubonics

    Akin to blackface,

    R' u wit' it...

    Are you with my race

    Trying to relate

    Can you feel it...

    Are you with negate,

    In the N***** word you spake

    Do you spit it...

    Are you down with faith

    Or believing in fate-

    Are you kidding?

    I ain't wit' hate.
    not self-hate, not hate of others,
    not a hater in any sense of the word
    beyond hating hate. lol
    But I'm wit' the poem!:D
