Portrait of a Nigger

You see a wooden picture frame, lifeless … with nothing inside it. When you call another Black person “nigger,” what you are truly saying is that they don’t exist!! As a Black man, I didn’t come from a planet, continent, state, city, town or tribe called nigger! Did you? For all those who want to justify calling another Black person “nigger” as if it is some sort of loving title, why not go all the way with it and play your nigger-card by changing your name to “nigger.” Just to make sure you pass down your God-given right to use “nigger” as a representation of so many lost and unknowing souls, try this: When your sons or daughters bring a newborn baby into the world, demand with an iron fist that they name their child “nigger”! See how far that will take that family’s and child’s life!

If the Black race is to be seen as part of the human race, the lifeless title of “nigger” must be erased from our vocabulary!
