I cry my brothers and sisters
For those who will never see tomorrow.
Copious tears I shed for my people;
blood red tears, they reflect my sorrow.
The sheen of the darkest flesh
will never stand the test of time.
Its glow fades with each day
When the mournful tune of death’s bell will chime.
Must I look upon stark evil;
The depraved that have no soul?
And those who look like me
Walk hand in hand with the slave patrol.
Not all of us have sold out
nor have we taken Massa’s bone.
We stand proud and shake our head
because selling out, we don’t condone!

I wrote this poem for the piece of shit that posted a picture of the filth that killed Freddie Gray and titled it, “This is racism?! You goddamn right, it is racism! Black people have been separated and pitted against each other since having been dragged the fuck over here, so don’t even fucking act like you don’t know that the house slaves were pitted against the field slaves and this continues to this day.
Some Black folks have the nerve to think that if they act like whites and do the same dirty shit that whites do, that that is somehow going to make them more acceptable to the whites, they will do whatever it takes to attempt to fit in. They are called sell-outs! I don’t give a goddamn about those white motherfuckers sitting there facing the mug shot camera, they’re a given. Black motherfuckers who are sell-outs are just as guilty as the slave patrols they ride around with and who do filthy shit to try and impress whitey white ass. Newsfuckingflash! Not a goddamn thing you sell-out motherfuckers can do can impress whitey white ass cause he knows he will always take the Nobel Prize for Fucking A Black Person’s Ass up. The Nobel Prize committee is giving out awards in new categories. These no-account coon head prize winners have been considered to have made advancements for Massa! Obama’s got his for being Massa’s Top Male Coon Head Sell-out! Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake received her Nobel Prize for being Massa’s Top Female Coon Head Sell-out! Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, both received Nobel Prizes for being Massa’s Willing and Obliging Bootlickers and their prize is busily collecting dust on shelves propped up by Massa’s table scraps thrown to their sell-out ass! Fuck all y’all filthy sell-out motherfuckers!
And to the son-of-a-bitch that said I’m ‘mad, angry and filled with hate’, you goddamn right! I am SO glad that I leave you in no doubt, motherfucker!
