This word burns as it rolls off my tongue ,i can feel my ancestors being whipped as the 'r' forms on my lips i can hear the cries as soon as the 'a' drops out my mouth ,this word hold so much power it hold the tears of my genealogy it's been the formation of every African philosophy
so what makes you think you can say it to me , what makes you think its okay to strip me of everything i have worked for everything i have earned
we yearn to be equal yet you take it from me with a word a word with one syllable ,imagine your life begin taken away from you with 2 vowels and 4 consonants
how would you like it ?
so what makes you think you can do it to me . what makes you think that in the palm of your hand you hold my life .what makes you think that 'N' word describes me what makes you think that it holds the story of my life ..what makes you think im a nigga , or a nigger why cant you think im a person like you
