The Angry Nigger – by Brian A. Wilkins

I have been manipulated, I’ve been caged,
None of the bullshit improved with age,
I expose dirty cops, I help those in need,
I hate evil people who do dastardly deeds,

You sound too white, your speech too lucid,
We need more ghetto, we need more stupid,
Come be a liberal, join the GOP,
But you ain’t doing shit without one of us indeed,

A black man is chattel, a black man’s a slave,
He cannot be himself, just an insect in the cave,
Don’t love the white girl cause her dad hates your guts,
The black girl thinks you’re lame, a totally useless putz,

Why can’t I win, why can’t I feel joy?
Why am I just a tool, a corporate, political toy?
If mom and dad stayed married, things would be great,
But here I am today, realizing my fate.
