Niggas




Kool-aid drinkin', fried chicken eatin' niggas
Rob you at gunpoint, crackhead/alcoholic niggas 
Rape ya daughters rape ya sons 
Heartless ass niggas 
Gun totin' tech-9 4-5 stutin' niggas 
Ain't man enough to take care of they own damn kids 
Lazy no good niggas
Wifebeater wearin' abusive husband 
Stealin' from ya loved ones
Ghetto ass niggas 

Get outta my neighborhood niggas 
You ain't welcome here niggas
Them niggas need Jesus 
They spawn from the Devil, that's why their skin so dark
It's a curse I tell ya! A curse! 
I'll be damned if I let them 
Lil thievin' niggas around my kids  
Go back to Africa, chase those lions 
And throw spears from the highest tree niggas

My niggas wear pants that hang off they asses 
My niggas are straight G's 
We don't take no shit from no 
"Wanna be gay ass white boy niggas"
My niggas drank 40's and talk to 
Fine ass bitches that look like Beyonce
No dark bitches tho, my niggas'll kick they 
Tar lookin' asses to the curb 

My niggas real 
Them fake ass niggas wear tight ass jeans 
And look like some rock listenin' emo motherfuckas
We don't want no helpin' hand
That's what the oozi is for
Feel me, my nigga?
Don't hate the playa hate the game 
We strugglin' so we hustlin' rocks 
Like Young Jeezy back in the day 
See, you ain't a nigga unless you from the streets
Fuck the goddamn suburbs my nigga 
We stay in the hood and we run it too 
Cus we niggas, real ass niggas

David Allen Waters said...

powerful my friend....

AmandaFlowz said...

You got this published? Are you kidding me? This is sad. This is pathetic. By someone who holds themselves so high you sure managed to make yourself look pretty stupid. This is not poetry. This is not art. Were you trying to make yourself seem hard, strong, smart? It did not show.

Anthony Desmond said...

@AmandaFlowz You obviously don't understand this poem... The ignorance you've displayed is exactly what this poem is about.

Alex Dissing said...

I respect the fact that you don't give a fuck and just say it. That's what it takes.

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Nobody knows the struggle better than those in its midst. You show the emperor has no clothes.

Caty said...

wow, this is powerful stuff...puts you right in minds of the differing sides...ignorance is so sad

Natasha said...

Anthony! Where do I begin? This is harsh and gritty, and will no doubt offend more than a few who are unable to have an original thought...the pic alone raised my eyebrows, let alone the ensuing rant. It totally offends the conditioned, PC side of my brain, but the truth seeker within screams YELL IT LOUDER! An awesome freaking start to #openlinknight! There's bound to be some discussion here...write on!

Arron Shilling said...

this is it my friend - every write is a step closer to your actualisation.
something you wont find get by sitting on the fence - it requires edge and this is cutting
Fucking A

as ever your art work is awesome and on meassage
superb

The Linnet said...

Just 'Wow' I am going to have to think about this one.

Thanks for sharing

Claudia said...

it makes me sick when i think there are really people who talk like this...sad and powerfully penned anthony

Joe Hesch said...

I hope some people get that you just blew up a word and it's concepts from both sides of its boundaries. Heard it a lot from both those sides my whole life. And sometimes you have to shake these folks really, really hard to get their attention. You shook 'em, AD, shook 'em good.
Left me breathing hard, young friend. Keep pounding. - J

LauraX said...

and the thing is we are living in the same world, ok, worlds inside worlds, but still the same world...pain is pain, struggle is struggle, misunderstandings, refusals to try to see, to listen...judgement just because...that's how the smaller worlds maintain their bubble.

powerful writing Anthony...thank you.

mrs mediocrity said...

So powerful, disconcerting, yes, uncomfortable, yes. But lately I am of the mindset that we spend way too much time being politically correct, and far too little telling the truth, being real. Your voice does both.

hedgewitch said...

Reminds me of being a kid and hearing my white relatives talk like the first half and being totally mystified, then growing up and hearing the same thing bizarro-mirror reversed like the second half from some gangster types, similarly puzzled--but that's how a lot of minds seem to (not) work. A very sharp, piercingly sharp, and on target poem, Anthony. Keep doing it.

theborgpoet said...

One word: Okay two: Frikkin' crazy! Offensively deliberate. Wow

Louise said...

Wow...powerful stuff. Good to see you shaking things up! Poetry can change the world...I'm pretty sure yours can. Keep writing what's on your heart...it shines through..

Uneven Stephen said...

Powerful and raw. Sadly, ignorance still runs strong. Thanks for sharing and speaking out.

Fred said...

Very powerful write.

velvetinapurrs said...

Good for you...brave write...really impressed..i can't imagine how dreadful it is to live with such prejudice, ignorance, & all the culturally defined identity pressure/s from both 'sides' - i imagine it could be pretty bloody frustrating and painful..your voice is cutting through here..

zongrik said...

great piece of poetry. amazing flow. i would love to hear this read by you just to hear where you put the emphasis, your intonations etc.

could you do a recording and post it on this page?

Anthony Desmond said...

@zongrik ah, I would if I had something to record my voice on!

chromapoesy.com said...

No holds barred and acutely drawn, a work of art. I have that dreadful knot in the pit of my stomach. Have you ever read Joseph L. Graves Jr.? He's a biologist: 'Most Americans still believe that there is some biological legitimacy to our socially constructed racial categories. However, our modern scientific understanding of human genetic diversity flies in the face of all of our social stereotypes.'

oceangirl said...

Hi. I read it to a very nice pounding rhythm.

robkistner said...

lots of anger, lots of frustration, lots of power, and lots of empowerment... felt very real Anthony... can't directly relate to the detail, but can certainly relate to the essence...

Mark Kerstetter said...

On the one hand I'm reluctant to add to the chorus of white faces shouting "Great Job!" but on the other hand I'm glad to see you at the pub. The racial problems in our country will never even begin to be solved until we (blacks and whites esp) can speak to each other straight. This poem is a step in that direction.

signed...bkm said...

I like the gritty and real...to candy coat life..is to live a lie...there is sweat and dirt, there is art and form..there is two sides to every cultural and every person....strong writing Anthony...bkm

Patricia said...

Doesn't matter what color we are, what language we speak... we're all hypocrites one way or another. You brought this full circle... albeit dragging mine by the strength of yours. I appreciate the way you responded to ignorance.

Ann LeFlore said...

Wow this is amazing so full of anger, power, and frustration. You say it how it is and I like this very much no holding back. Good write

JANU said...

A very harsh and rude opening but you drove your point in the end...too good.

tinkwelborn said...

Wow! stunning. Hate rant. Dude, you poem moves me. Don't know as I'd the 'guts' to write something similar...it's raw and 'out there.' in your face.
Effect? your poem got it.
thanks for sharing.

Dave King said...

A powerful two-fingers to the P.C. Brigade.

Ali Sultana said...

nice concept, coulda been far better executed, if i understand ur intent, need to take a few more swings at it, C+

Pearl said...

The reality of the poem saddened me. But the truth is just that whether you say it or not. I understand it completely but still a hard pill to swallow.

Nate said...

That shit ain't worthy to be PUBLISHED. It's FUCKING WHACK RAP - Punk Bitch type shit!

Gabrielo Banks said...

Wow you even drew in some haters. Felt real to me. I'm glad you got it published.
