birth of a nation?

cultural genocide

annihilation

in a god’s name

gentrification

ass-imilation

gotcha

ass-imitatin’

bowin’, scrapin’

adulatin’

ingratiatin’

ass-kissin’

emasculatin’

herit-images

amputatin’

psychologically

castratin’

freedom dreams

decapitatin’

black souls traded

raped and degraded

4th of july celebratin’

and gettin’ faded…

while some fool

steppin’ off the boat

hollas… ‘We made it…’

 

(nods to Frederick Douglass… the 4th of July for the Slave)
