“Oh! No, You Don’t Little Nigger Girl”

Oh! Who do you think you are? Little Nigger Girl.
speaking when not asked
putting a white woman in her place
not begging for a pass
Oh, no you don’t little Nigger Girl
Who are you to have a voice
telling us white folk how you feel
thinking you have a choice
You better apologize to that woman
Nigger Girl, don’t you know your place?
She’s a white woman, a White woman, a fraction of the superior race
didn’t your Momma’ teach you better little Nigger Girl
Your daddy didn’t prepare you well
You play by our rules or else. No telling the lies we’ll tell
Damn you. Oh, damn you, little Nigger Girl who told
you to have pride?
Your people have been killed for less, beaten, hung, and easily tossed aside
You think your special little Nigger Girl because you’re mulatto mother has european genes
Because your hair is fine and curly
Because your complexion isn’t deep
well let me explain the truth to you, Little Nigger Girl
none of that means a thing
This here is our land, and as long as we’re in charge freedom will never reign
So you shut your mouth little Nigger Girl and don’t you speak the truth again
Wrongly accusing you was only the beginning haven’t you seen what we have done to your
Nigger men
