Sell Out

by Trina Williams-Emigh

I'm sick!!
Of that Uncle Tom nigger
Talkin white
Go figger
Who are you impressing?
Corporate America?
White America?
Hey! A nigger is a nigger
A black is a nigger
An African American is a nigger
Be he dark, light, tan or damn near white
To America, he is just a nigger;
That the policemen fight
That the government will slight
That the laws will indict
That the Klan will spite
That America tries to overwrite
To white America, a corporate  nigger,
Is just another nigger with a phd
Who thinks his education,
Will set him free
