    where you goin' white boy?
    and where'd you get that book?
    who in the sam hell taught you how to read?
    see that big booty in them jeans, don't look!
    you so dam shook..

    you work at the uhuru plantation
    you helped build the foundation
    for that raw piece of pig you're tastin'

    ain't no time wastin'
    hurry up and give me that text
    if you ever get as smart as us
    who knows what's next

    we'll have to do ya like Ving in Rosewood
    test out ya neck
    or chop ya like some firewood
    for not breakin' a sweat

    yeah, i took yo' white woman
    and got her pregnant and all
    i look at you like monkeys
    apes, horses, and dogs

    i'll break every last one of you
    and build you back up
    the strong might get weak
    so, we'll need back up

    don't slack up *******,
    peckerwood, wigger, honky-tonk
    it's raining outside, come in
    when you're wet, i smell the funk

    clean up all this junk
    and take yo' a** back to that cave
    you nordic-anglo-slavics
    don't deserve to be called slaves

    i wear my hair in braids, dreads
    bald, fros, and fades
    if i catch you rockin' a caesar
    your whole body gets shaved

    eye for an eye is weak
    tooth for a tooth is too lame
    i'll do you worse than Kunta
    if you can't pronounce my name

    choke 'til i see veins pop out
    enslave every baby that drops out
    ask you, "Whatchu talkin' bout'?"
    reply, and get yo' a** knocked out

    pale-faced pilgrim-lovin' preaching false sh**
    i'll impale each poindexter pencil-neck *****
    caucas-asian marlboro-blazin' snuff-dippin' micks
    leprechaun, rash-growin', sneaky sumama b**ch

    off our wealth you got rich
    bought a skyscraper and a statue
    but, everything you did
    is comin' right back at you

    if you're black you ain't safe
    some of you traitors aided the devils
    for being rebels, bury your comrades
    and get beat with the same shovel

    the same violence put out
    comes back in like boomerangs
    father-and-son snipes at civilians in D.C.
    who's to blame

    oh, it's just beginning just wait you'll see
    a bald, fat white man hanging from a tree
    call it justice, call it vengance
    call it whatever Webster says
    thank you for his-story
    but, there ARE chapters unread

    use your head black man
    lose your head racist jew
    carnivorous and cannabalistic
    i'll take a bite and chew

    we now have your attributes
    but, as for those who showed us mercy
    we have food when you're hungry
    and water when you're thirsty

    it won't happen overnight
    or over a fight or in a year
    it happens when anger mixed with intellect
    cedes fear

    wala! dissappear get your a** up outta here
    we blend ebonics with ivory tusks
    and bring the spirit of Nat in here
    meanwhile, malcolm smiles, martin hides a childish grin
    marcus chuckles, malachi muscles up
    and ushers the true light in

    who might win? no fight
    no might just right is how this goes
    when tables get to turnin'
    the whole world knows!

    um

    what goes around comes around

    get perspective here poet

    you know i'm feeling ya

    what if roles where reversed

    how many whites would kill themselves?

    in our position

    the know this is not mentally helpless this environment

    but somehow we've stayed sane

    or have we?

    peace

    poet

    glad to see you

    still waiting for when you hit NY

    thought that was funny

    If the tables were turned, would others manage to survive as we have? I think not. This piece is on fire poet.
