Always “Nigger Season”

    by Rev. Reynard N. Blake, Jr.

    It’s 44 days for a killer to be arrested

    It’s a damn “knock, knock” joke

    Glib to black death

    It’s white expectations of black violence

    It’s Fox News jumping with glee


    Always “Nigger Season”

    by Rev. Reynard N. Blake, Jr.


    What is “Nigger Season?”

    It’s George Zimmerman walking free

    It’s all-white juries

    When Skittles and iced tea become weapons

    It’s a “justice system”

    That’s soooo proficient

    Putting black people in jail

    And, can’t get justice for one

    It’s 44 days for a killer to be arrested

    It’s a damn “knock, knock” joke

    Glib to black death

    It’s white expectations of black violence

    It’s Fox News jumping with glee

    It’s their analysis being justified

    It’s “Stop and Frisk” being justified

    It’s colleges and universities fiending for black athletes

    But dismantling affirmative action

    Killing voting rights


    Here’s what kills rednecks

    Specifically, Republicans and Conservatives

    This is what they think:

    “A nigger president”


    That president

    Wanting a “bromance”

    Having a schoolboy crush on Republicans

    Acting like one

    Wanting to do their bidding

    He kills for them

    With them

    Drones and all

    Brown-skinned folks run

    Soon to be turned on to Americans

    Spy on them, too


    AND they STILL think he’s a nigger

    (Like their boy, Clarence Thomas)

    Conservatives and the GOP

    Making his girls political fodder

    Sanctioning one of their fellow “Crackers”

    Talking about Michelle’s butt

    It’s that same Cracker having fantasies

    Of days of yore

    Dreaming of being a slave owner

    Or, a ship’s captain

    Seeking the “good ol’ days”

    Having his way with nigger bitches

    Enhancing his proficiency with the lash

    Bible on his right hip

    (Analyzing it wickedly)

    Gun on his left hip

    Mastering the use of shackles

    Aroused at thoughts

    Wiping Native Americans and Africans

    Whipping Native Americans and Africans

    Christianizing Native Americans and Africans

    (By dehumanizing them)

    Off the face of the earth

    Sensenbrenner feeling good about those fantasies

    GOP couldn’t even feign to disavow him

    But then, why should they?

    If the hood fits WEAR IT!




    Some 2520s

    Thinking, but not saying “nigger”

    Prejudging black people

    Associating them with the worst

    Expecting them to be:

    “The Chuckle People”

    Joking and singing on TV and movies

    And in the office

    Or, acting like orifices

    Or, expecting them to go to the “Big House”

    And, I’m not writing about the U of M football field

    Although for some that’s pleasing

    “Run that ball, nigger!”

    (“Look at that nigger run!”)

    “Jump over that hurdle, nigger!”

    “Slam that ball, nigger!”

    “All the day long, nigger!”

    “All the live-long day, nigger!”


    Then, when those “niggers” are off the field

    Or, the dance floor

    Some 2520s think:

    “Serve me quick, nigger!”

    “I’ll pay you less nigger!”

    “I’m Paula Deen, nigger!”

    “This is Dixie, nigger!”

    “Rather, this is America, nigger!”

    “You’re just monkeys, nigger!”

    (“What’s a ‘honky,’ nigger?”)

    (“Why do you niggers say, ‘My nigger?’”)

    “You just steal, nigger!”

    “You’re hard to believe, nigger!”

    “Even when you academically achieve, nigger!”

    “You’re still OJ, nigger!”

    “Not always OK, nigger!”

    “I’m going to follow you in this store, nigger!”

    “Even if you can pay for something, nigger!”

    “You’ve got to have bad credit, nigger!”

    “Killing Trayvon’s OK, nigger!”

    (“Zimmerman’s my hero, nigger!”)

    “Keep wearin’ a hoodie, nigger!”

    “I’ll drop a cap in you, nigger!”

    “I won’t even go to jail, nigger!”

    (“Cause I can get better lawyers, nigger!”)

    (“That’s why I don’t go to jail on drug charges, nigger!”)

    “Be gone, nigger!”

    “Get out my way, nigger!”

    “Know your place, nigger!”

    “They’re called ghettos, nigger!”

    “Or, called barrios, nigger!”

    “Or, reservations, nigger!”

    “All of you look the same, anyway!”

    “I’m always right, nigger!”

    “Because I’m white, nigger!”


    So, brothers and sisters of all hues

    Of all races

    Considering the events of the day

    Any day

    In America

    Or, globally

    How should I feel?

    What should I believe?

    Based on the evidence

    Based on my experience

    Based on what I see:

    Without rhyme or reason
