Love For Ancestors

Love For Ancestors
By St_Clinton
I find it amazing the lack of Love
We have for our Ancestors
in the Black community today.
I wonder what our Ancestors
would have to say
if they heard the words that we use today.
We use a word today
Which brought Terror
in the form of the KKK
But walk and listen
in any community today
and you will hear the word used
during the night and during the day
Each time that I hear someone
use that word today.
I realize that they are spitting
on the grave of
Martin, Malcolm, Harriet, Marcus, Jesse Owens,
Paul Robeson, Jack Johnson, Rosa Parks
Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglas, Josephine Baker
Shirley Chisholm, Langston Hughes, Billie Holiday,
Crispus Attucks, Thurgood Marshall, Medgar Evers, The slaves
and so many others
I am sure that they are sad to hear
that word used as it is today.
To those who feel that your use of the word is all that,
you are giving the power to the Slave Masters again
to take that bullwhip to your slave ancestors back.
Whack, Whack, Whack
Oh I’m sure your ancestors who where slaves
are just loving that
Whack, Whack, Whack
The Respect and Honor that
your ancestors will have for you
and in there spiritual ways
will help your self respect be bigger,
Which would you rather have,
the ancestors look at you as
someone on the stage as a
Talented poet or spoken word artist,
or just as a minstrel show nig…

I hear the word on a daily basis myself.  Walking down the streets of Harlem you can't avoid hearing the word.  But as you walk down these streets, I have to say using the n-word is relatively low on the list of priorities of things that need to be addressed.  


If you listen to the hip-hop station on Sirrius radio.  You will hear the n-word in virtually every "song."  Once, when struck by the copious use of the word' I recall listening to 10 songs in a row but before I stopping counting.  


I just found that so crazy the the word would be used to frequently in the music we produce.  But then again we don't really control what is broadcast over Sirrius, do we?


Thanks for sharing you message here St-Clinton.  You are doing God's work.
