    "Cotton-picking watermelen eating ******"
    The stupid white ******* use to call his slave
    "You uppity ****** needs to know your place"
    The stupid thinking white man would call the segragated brother
    "Yo that's my nigg@"
    Used today by the black brother to describe another black brother
    The word now that a no white person would call me today.
    But back in the day, they would call me ****** as if that $hit was my name
    Making me feel sadden as if it was shameful to have the blood of the proud African people running through my veins
    Making me feel pissed
    When they descraced by painting shoe polished on their face
    Potrayed us as eating chicken and talking in "ain'ts" and "yalls"
    As if "the ******" was an ignorant creature
    As if "the ******" was that black
    As if "the ******" love to dance and makes @sses of themselves
    As if "the ******" was a side show to entertain them
    The word "******" was a word of ignorance, uneducated, imrorality, uncultured, dimwitted, obsurd, mumbskulled, impidemented
    But the word ****** describes
    The blood​
    The sweat​
    The tears​
    The souls taken​
    and the struggle that "the ******" was able to accomplish
    Now it has evoled from ****** to *****
    But not the white saying it
    it's the blacks
    Makin it word of pride and vanity
    Makin it a word that a white man is dying to say it at blacks again
    A word of pride
    The evolution of ****** is not necessarily good
    but not bad either
    Now I don't have to be ashamed of being called a "******"
    Now I wont have to feel carried to be called a "******"
    But now I confused to be confirmed as one
    but
