Niggaz

What’s up my Niggas? 

Why is it comfortable to say?

No matter what poets tell us

The young people continue to greet each other this way.

.

It’s like a word that we’ve brought with us

That is in our vernacular

It’s like words embedded in us

So personal and insular

.

There is something so powerful about us

We teach the rest of the world what to wear and say

Could we be those Kings and Priests;

Revelation talks about, here in our modern day?

.

It’s Hebrew words like Amen and Hallelujah

Spilled over into everyone’s culture

Words the rest of the world uses

Isn’t that spectacular?

.

For centuries our ancestors prayed

Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be Done

Now upon us, “Be unafraid”

The world must succumb!

.

Kufi prayer caps are now ‘Do- rags’

Rolled up and tucked under

Snug, worn above your brow

Now we know. “It’s no wonder?!”.

.

African Buba shirts or Jellabiya

Have been translated into huge T’s

With the hem below your buttocks

And just below the elbow is the end of your sleeve.

.

It’s Hammer pants and low crotch baggy pants

Those ARE our African garb.

It’s embroidery on your leather jacket

To luxuriate no day in particular.

.

Nigger, Nigga, Niggaz, Niggas, Negus

N-E-G-U-S

Is an Ethiopian Biblical word for an Emperor:

“All you Niggaz get on the boat!”

The tone was said to cause furor.

.

When you hear youth using the ‘N’ word

Tell them what it means

They are greeting each other, even if they don’t know it;

Telling each other they are Kings.
