       I'm just trying to wrap togther ideas of how my generation is slightly racist yet says the word Nigger often and hasn't even experienced racist events in their lives.

    When called nigger we strike in large groups
    Retaliate with force and unite in troops
    Quick to throw a punch or pull a trigger
    Then look our brothers in the face and say “wats good nigger”
    Then rebuttal with our predecessors from what we say
    And say it’s different because “ours ends with A”
    My own generation wears clothes from empty shelves
    And don’t hold fights with our enemies only ourselves
    Some remain racists and repeat the trend
    And never meet other races, afraid they’ll befriend
    But I’ve had racism in my life second none
    I’ve been called a Nigger face to face one on one
    I’ve had more racism in my life since the age of five
    Than someone has for twenty years they were alive
    I remember being degraded because of my race
    And all because I was black having doors slammed in my face
    My dreams where clipped young I was never told to soar
    And because I’m black it’s ok that I get followed in stores
    Eyes would look through blinds as I walked in the street
    As soon as I turned my back dogs would come loose from a leash
    And escort me home everyday, same beat same drum
    Then bricks in my windows saying “go back to where you came from”
    So when my youth talks of white people and their actions
    I get upset every time and give negative reaction
    Cause the other race may be the one to start it first
    But what I get from my own people is far more worse

      The word spoken are so true. Many of us who are African-American degrade our own race as well as others. But other races also do the same. We need to learn to be together and for each other. Great poem.
