It's More Than A Knee... My N#%GA!!

IT'S MORE THAN A KNEE... MY N#%GA!!

Ladies And Gentlemen Please Rise For The Singing Of Our National Anthem🇺🇸...

(I would cue UGK’s “Internatonal Players Anthem”, however this shiiiiiit right here my N#%GA this shit right here is to the ‘other other’ original tune)

“Oh Say Can U Seeeee Another Nigga Took A Kneeeee In Solidarityyyy Against Racism, Police Brutalityyy, But To White Supremacy We’re Disrespecting Everything They Stand For, In Captivity”

What were you expecting? A hand over the ❤️ with pride in the written words such as “LAND OF THE FREE” and “HOME OF THE BRAVE”?

I’ll play the rebel and revolt by saying Francis Scott Key white wealthy slave owning ass really wasn’t WOKE to the times let alone had hopes for us ALL in equality nor equity, knowing how fucking reflective he was NOT in his lyrics truthfully as it was not for us ALL.

While taking that knee please say these words with me from the great prophet HOV in the 4:44 Book of Hymns: “Light nigga, dark nigga, faux nigga, real nigga, Rich nigga, poor nigga, house nigga, field nigga Still nigga, still nigga.” (Jay-Z “Story of O.J.”)

YES, YES YA’LL... Yes, you my pure Anglo Saxons (WHITE PEOPLE) have said the word NIGGA! 🤣

☝🏾YOU ain’t gettin 🙅🏾‍♂️NO MORE🙅🏾‍♂️ “brothers” up off of me though so that was your last! #MyBrothersKeeper

Memories flashback in my mind of reading Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, in high school and how all my white counter parts cringed as if they didn’t have a party the weekend before filling red cups and passing party favors while rapping Lil' Wayne’s The Carter II, saying every #NWORD in the cotton field. Now all of a sudden be against the 11th and most important biblical commandment of them all... only “brothers” can say “BROTHERS”.

Watching Jay-Z wear Colin Kaepernick’s #7 jersey and perform songs from his recent masterpiece, I had a cord strike within how the “White Supremacist Marketing Schemes” have focused in on knees being a 'movement' of great 👉🏾negligence or dISREspect👈🏾 to the fine people (once again) of this here America.

(That’s like saying a black power ✊🏾 is against the use of five uncurled white fingers)

The racial stance in athletics 🏀🏈⚾️ (on and off the field) have been labeled as non patriotic and discriminatory from 📺 to sports bars with common talks by fine people who are unable to comprehend complexities of the colored kind.

So let’s sweep the 400 plus years of slavery, civil rights, the 90’s and millennial years (currently) under a knee to foot a banter against blacks rather it be peaceful protest or start a #RIOT❗️ (2-CHAINZ🎤 voice) as a negative motion.

Today, we still mourn the deaths of 🙏🏾Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Renisha McBride, Eric Garner, and far too many other African American people🙏🏾 who have lost their lives to systemic violence.

However we are to forget making focal points on the knees in which aren’t the same knees that shortens a black man’s breath, but knees kneeling in remembrance of resting souls who left us to soon while awakening the wounds on the real war in America that is RACE.


“And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”


Oh Kia❗️You Didn’t Know About This Third Verse?! It’s A Part Of The Fucking Song! #SweptUnderRugs😔

(k•í•â - |'kee'-'Yah'| -term used by black gay males within the ballroom community to catch one up on tea)

“a distinct and inferior race of people, which all experience proves to be the greatest evil that afflicts a community.” - Francis Scott Key

Cracker What?!

As you read blacks were basically defined as distinct inferior slaves of demonic natures. I will say The #WhiteSupremacyMarketingScheme will claim that Lady Francis (Yes! I called him LADY) was referring to the British however once ‘slave’ was written it’s hard to discredit the underlining for color.

Side Note: I’m still tryna find white slaves in the world #WhereAllMyWhiteSlavesAt!? (hear how fucking funny that sounds)

Would I be wrong to say White Supremacist are the new Slaveowners? I’ll wait... or Police Brutality is the modern day Lynching?! Is #Trumpisha the new “Anti-Christ”?! I’ll wait... these are questions currently in my mind I’m just offering a piece to you.

(Please feel free to answer as I’m #AskingForMyDamnself)

Though what I didn’t have to question was the NEW SLAVES.

Seizing the opportunities to take a knee at a professional setting as a league game is no different than the treachery that trickles off #Trumpisha’s tongue in a presidential place. It’s about making sure a platform is used to have people focus in on the reasons behind the actions not the assholes against it.

I suggest fine people choose to sing the full version including the slave shaming third verse while we’re down on bended knee next time, so they can feel somewhat superior in that moment, if feeling so disrespected.
