    I’m filing a suit, claiming copyright infringement,
    protecting my descendants
    from this counterfeit defendant.
    It’s highly recommended that I bring this case to light,
    cause they been jerkin’ us for far too long and now it’s time to make it right.
    My ancestors couldn’t put up a fight
    because they couldn’t read or write,
    so I will represent my people within this court tonight.

    That’s it for opening statements, now it’s time to prove your case,
    convince me and this jury of the validity to the statements made.


    They poked fun at us in menstrual shows with falsified perceptions,
    but now they breaking down the doors for them collagen injections.
    Not too long ago we were known as nothing more than tree ornaments,
    we died in street tournaments
    of who could kill and torment the most innocents.
    Those darkies, ******, coons, and mooks that ran around the plantation,
    were less than you, but now you’re darkening “YOUR” pigmentation
    with radiation and all sorts of topically medication,
    it’s hard to believe that so much hate would turn to admiration.
    Now don’t misinterpret my statements, and try to pass them off as racial,
    cause as this evidence will clearly show, in the percentage of enhanced facials,
    excessive cheek lifts and those big pouty lips
    were the one’s at the top of the table.
    Then there was poor Sarah Baatman
    with her unusually large rear compartment
    and vagina that was only fit for a King.
    They paraded her around in every circus in town,
    and now what’s the new trend on the scene?
    Vaginal beautification and glut augmentation,
    all to get what was given to black Queens.
    Now mister supremacy suffers severe penis envy,
    running to the Doc. For his implant,
    but 10 g’s later, he’s still a spectator
    cause his wife’s getting dicked while “HE” films it.

    Okay now that’s about enough, don’t you think that’s kinda rough?
    I ought to fine you for defamation of character,
    I’m slowly losing my patience,
    you know the rules of engagement,
    stick to the facts and prepare for your closing statements.


    Now that you’ve heard the defense,
    may I please approach the bench?
    Cause I want these final statements to hit home,
    I’ve been quoting facts from the start, it not my fault that they’re harsh
    sometimes the truth isn’t pleasant.
    We’ve been deemed lower than peasants,
    three fifths was the estimate,
    but clearly that approximation was inaccurate.
    Three fifths of this land was built on our backs,
    the one’s on which your whips used to crack.
    Three fifths of the casualties from your civil war,
    were the husbands of the wives your men used to whore.
    Three fifths of wealth this country holds,
    is directly connected to the free labor you proudly stole.
    Three fifths of your constitution, is full of holes,
    full of clauses and inconsistencies for crooks to mold.
    Three fifths of this planet is of African decent,
    so don’t wait til it’s four fifths before you decide to repent.
    Check the patent office, we hold darn near 3/5 of the patents in it,
    and that’s not counting the one’s that were stolen
    or the one’s that we’re never documented.
    Now that I’ve proven my case, let’s get right down to the matter a hand.
    I’m talking full compensation for our contribution to building this nation
    plus the sum of the copyright infraction,
    I believe this to be a justifiable action,
    and quite lenient considering that’s all that we’re asking.
    We are expecting immediate compliance
    and are completely confident in this courts unbiased ruling.

    This court finds the defendant “NOT GUILTY” of all charges,
    and holds the plaintiff’s council in complete contempt
    for defamation of character, slander, falsification of evidence,
    and counter patriotism. Case dismissed.


    The moral of the story, is self explanatory
    no matter the validity of our contribution is,
    reparations for us will never be more than myth,
    unless there’s a serious power shift
    caused by a collective revolutionary rift.

    To say this was superb, doesn't do this piece justice. The creativity in bringing our "case" in front of our jury who neither sees, hears, or speaks evil, nor ever will...And the message, sad yes, but the delivery was outstanding. All I can do now is.... :jawdrop: :jawdrop: :jawdrop:

    Here I stand befor the judge...as I simply state my fact
    yes, you stripped my people of all these things...but you couldn't take away the "Black"

    And another thing judge, do take this in stride...
    you were never able...to strip our "Pride"

    I say this loud :hearthis: for all to hear it...
    nothing can ever...kill our "spirit"

    I enjoyed reading this very much ...it pulled many untapped cords inside, thanks for taking us in, what we never came out of.

    Well...let the jury convene then
    because this spoken word joint
    has brought clarity where there
    once was ambiguity...

    You presented some hard facts...
    there's not denying it...

    Love the originality in this...

    Eyes wide open...
