I Am Not Your Good Negro

I hear you gasping loudly with your last breath of white supremacy

I will not bow to you

I will no laugh at your bigotry

I will not be Kanyed into celebrating your red hat Kavanaughed Klannery

I am not your Good Negro

I am Nanny of the Maroons, feminine and fierce, destroying your efforts with my African breath

I can’t be Amarosaed with your promise of ascension when you believe that we are sons of bitches from shithole countries

But like the phoenix from the ashes, still we rise…

I am Harriet Tubman building railroads right under your maggoted, racist eyes, too myopic to acknowledge the majesty that you know is US

I can’t be Carsoned into sharing an office of disgrace, because I am grace under fire, sister of Martin, Marcus, Malcolm and Mandela

I am Touissaint L’Ouverture, strategic and militant, you won’t see me coming, but I will blaze the trail to freedom

I am FREE, FIERCE and FIRED up, hopeful as I hear you gasp with your last breath

I am NOT your good Negro

And that you will learn in the resistant glow of the red, green, gold and Black

 

Ashe!
