niggas is scared
scared of the revolution
Before we rapped, we grabbed a djembe, a shaker and flowed
We allowed the Ancestors to move through us through dance and from the heart to our voice
This poetry from The Last Poets is me, all of me - unedited
Niggers play with white thighs
To see if they still have some play left
And when there ain't no white thighs to play with
Niggers play with themselves
Niggers tell you they're ready to be liberated
But when you say "Let's go take our liberation"
Niggers reply, "I was just playin'!"
Niggers are playing with revolution and losing
Niggers loved to hear Malcolm rap, but they didn't love Malcolm
Niggers love everything but themselves
But I'm a lover too, yes I'm a lover too
I love niggers, I love niggers, I love niggers
Because niggers are me, and I should only love that which is me
I love to see niggers go through changes, love to see niggers act
Love to see niggers make them plays and shoot the shit
But there is one thing about niggers I do not love
Niggers are scared of revolution
Most of the Black men who are scared of revolution either have a European partners or have yet to assert themself in their families as the protectors.
These are the men that casually say “I’m a momma’s boy” (I know b/c I used to do this)
These are the men who look like this
I’m trying to show you to learn who to trust
As I said in African Unity, your skin-folk isn’t always your kin-folk
There are signs everywhere where men are looking for someone to save them still
They are still emotionally stunted, still 8 years old with a deep mother wound
Still waiting for their mothers to save them
Still proving they are worthy of love rather than preparing themselves to PROTECT their mothers
Let’s heal our mother wounds
We have to train physically again
Sacred combat in a trauma informed space
It’s time to get over being scared of revolution
It’s time to bring back the healthy masculine, the healthy African father archetype
The men who are ready to use their hands, pick up a spear, even a gun to PROTECT the vulnerable
If you got some value out of here please considering contributing to our Baltimore fund to restore the village on-the-ground! We’re bringing back the healthy masculine!
I BELIEVE - my spoken word, i might play with more now that I’m listening to The Last Poets on repeat
