Wake Up Niggers

 
"Wake Up Niggers"
Poem by Alafia Pudim


Night descends as the sun's light ends
And black comes back to blend again
And with the death of the sun
Night and blackness become one
Blackness being you
Peeping through the red, the white, and the blue
Dreaming of boss black civilizations that once flourished and grew
Hey! Wake up, niggers, or y'all through.

Drowning in the puddle of the white man's spit
As you pause for some drawers in the midst of shit
And ain't got nothing to save your funky ass with!
You cool, fool, sipping on a menthol cigarette around midnight
Rapping about how the Big Apple is out of sight
When you ain't never had a bite
Who are you fooling, me, you?
Wake up, niggers, or y'all through.

In Uptown two roaches are drowning in each other's piss
In Downtown interracial lovers secretly kiss
While junkies are dreaming of total bliss
Somewhere in the atmosphere far away from here
Beyond realms of white dimensions
Gathered by suppressed intentions
As their cries, cries, cries go unrecognized
Except by their keeper, the Grim Reaper
"Save me a corner", you shout as the lights go out
'Cause you ain't paid your electric bill
And the rats and roaches move on in for the kill
As your lips struggle to drain that last drop from the wine bottle
And you roll snake eyes, never to realizing that you blew
Wake up, niggers, or you're all through.

Sitting in the corner with your minds tied to your behinds
Bonafide members of Niggers Anonymous
Never knowing which way you're going - pimping off life
Turning tricks to slick dicks, with candy asses
"All masses will be held tomorrow morning for the Late Great black man."
"Amen."
You niggers, understand?
Up against the wall
Black Maryland Farmers, or I'll blow you away
And you'll never live to see the light of day
And the nightstick, the nightstick, it glides gracefully upside your head
That's right, brothers and sisters, you living dead
When the cock crows, and the night goes
And it saves your ass in the nick of time
As you wake up and you start to find
Yourself, laying up in bed - scratching your ass and head
Trying to remember from where you recall this Vermeer nightmare
That always leave you feeling blue
But you still can't place the Man's face as hard as you try to
Hey! Wake up, niggers, or we all through.

Are You Ready

 

"ARE YOU READY"
Poem written by David Nelson
Performed by Nina Simone at Harlem Cultural Festival, 1969


Are you ready, Black people?

Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready, Black people?
Are you ready, Black people?
Are you really ready?
Ready to do what is necessary?
Ready to do what is necessary to do?
Are you ready Black man?
Black woman are you ready?
Are you really really ready?
Hear me good now
Hear me good now

Are you ready to kill if necessary?
Is your mind ready?
Is your body ready?
Are you ready to do what you have to do to create life?

Are you ready to smash White things?
To burn buildings are you ready?
Are you ready to build Black things?
Are you ready to give yourself,
Your love,
Your soul,
Your heart,
To create life?
Are you ready to create out of nothing?
Are you ready, Black people?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Black man,
Black youth,
Black woman,
Black everybody,
Are you really, really, really ready?

I ain't finished yet
You got to get your-own-self together, you see?
You got to ask yourself these questions

Are you ready to call the wrath of Black Gods?
Black magic
to do you bidding?
Are you ready to use your whatever is necessary?
Let me hear you say it

Like this. . .
Yes, I am ready
Yes, I am ready
Are you ready to groove?
Are you ready to listen to all the beautiful Black voices,
of beautiful Black feeling,
the Beautiful Black waves,
Moving in beautiful air?v Are you ready to love Black,
Always loving Black?
Are you ready, Black people?
Are you ready?

Are you ready to listen?
Are you ready to hear?
Are you ready to feel?
Are you ready to do?
Black people, are you ready?

Most important, are you ready to change?
I said, are you ready to change?
Are you ready to change yourself?
You what I'm talking about?
You what I'm talking about?
Are you ready to go inside yourself and change yourself?

Are you ready to change
To a really groovy, groovy Black person?
Are you really ready to change yourself
Turn yourself inside out, through and through,
And make yourself through and through,
And through,
And through,
And through,
Real Black person?
I said, are you ready?



"NIGGERS ARE SCARED OF REVOLUTION" by The Last Poets, 1970



オレたちは革命にビビっている
だがオレたちが革命に怖じ気づく必要なんてない
なぜなら革命とは「変化チェンジ」に他ならない
変化といえばオレたちの専売特許じゃないか

仕事から帰ってくるなりピンプの衣装に早変わりし
ストリートに出ては小銭チェンジを稼ぐオレたち
黒い髪を赤髪や金髪に変えてしまうオレたち
顔かたちを変えるのに必死なオレたち
お釣りチェンジの金額がオカシイと言って殺し合いをやるオレたち
男から女に変わったり
女から男に変わったり
変化してばかりのオレたち
オレたちは変化、変化、変化
「時代は変わったんだぜ」なんて言うオレたち
たしかに 時代は変化している
最近のオレたちは「ブラック」とやらに変わった
「ブラック」とやらになったオレたちは とかく変化に目がない
ちかごろの変化といえば
「ブラック・パワー! ブラック・パワー!」と叫ぶオレたち
そんでもって夜が来るとさらに変化するオレたち
夜になれば鼻息を荒くして
「白人の太もも・・・白人の太もも・・・」
口先ばかりで
変化を云うくせに
真の変革のことになれば
革命にビビっているオレたち

オレたちは演じるのがうまい
オレたちは演技アクトはお手のもの
オレたちは急いでいるフリをしながら
『グレイト・ホワイト・ホープ』の第一アクトを観に行く
オレたちはマルコムの真似アクトをする
そんで白人の反応が鈍くてマルコムよろしく反発がなければ
暴力的な振る舞いアクトをするオレたち
クールにキメるオレたちに
白人は「どうやったらアイツらみたくカッコよく振る舞えるんだ?」
誰も見た事のない行動アクトをやってのけるオレたち
しかし革命を起こすための行動となれば
「そういう行動はオレは好きじゃないんで・・・」と言う
オレたちは革命にビビってんだ

オレたちはだらしがない
だらしがないのオレたち
オレたちは団結できない
団結できないオレたち
オレたちは口を開けば 麻薬でハイになる話
麻薬でハイになって地獄へまっしぐらのオレたち
オレたちのおしゃべりの話題といえば騙し合い
あいつに騙された こいつに騙された
あそこにカモがいるぞ こっちにカモがいるぞ
騙すほうも騙されるほうも
大挙して騙したり騙されたり
オレたちはだらしがない
だらしがないのがオレたち
オレたちは団結できない
団結できないオレたち
「アタマ」の話ばかりしているオレたち
「オレのアタマはお前のアタマより上等だ」とか
「あのスケ、アタマは
オレの言いつけで一杯だ」とか
本当はアタマのことなんて何も分かっちゃいないオレたち
それともオレたちのアタマが本当に上等なのか
・・・オレたちは革命にビビってんだ

オレたちは「ファック」ばっかり
一にも二にも、ファック、ファック
ファックって言葉が好きたまらないオレたち
ファッキン・カワイイわねと言われ
ファッキン調子にのるオレたち
頭に来ることがあれば「ファックしやがれ!」
オレたちに構うやつには「ファック・ユー!」
仕事に顔を見せねえ奴には「どこでファックしてやがる」
オレたちに近づけば いいカモにされちゃってファックだぞ
あれがファックこれがファックといいながら
何のファックも分かっちゃあいないファックなオレたち
これじゃあ仕舞いにファックになっちまう
手遅れだと気付いたときには
これでもかというほどファックになっているオレたち
オレたちはとにかくファックの話ばかり
あれもファック これもファック
お前のもファック オレの妹もファック
意味もわからずファックしている
愛でもないファック 恋でもないファック
ファックのためにファックする
オレたちは白い太ももをファックして
黒い太もももファックする
イエローの太もももファックして
ブラウンの太もももファックする
勢い余ってカカトもファックする
オレたちはサリーちゃんもファックして
リンダちゃんもスーちゃんもファックする
気をつけろよ お前もファックするぞ
オレたちはしまいにファックまでファックするんじゃないか
もしファックをファックできるんだったらの話
だが革命運動をファックしようぜって話になると
オレたちは「革命なんてファックしやがれ!」
つまり、オレたちは革命にビビってんだ

オレたちはプレーヤーだ
オレたちはプレーヤーだ
オレたちは遊びを楽しむのが上手い
スポーツは何でもござれ
オレたちはフットボール・プレーヤーだ
オレたちはベースボール・プレーヤーだ
オレたちはバスケットボール・プレーヤーだ
オレたちはタマ遊びのプレーヤーだ
タマを引っこ抜かれた白人とは大違い
黒人の太ももを楽しむオレたち
黒人の太ももに満足できないときは
白人の太ももを楽しむオレたち
白人の太ももが見つからないときは
自分自身を慰めて楽しむオレたち
民族解放に向けて準備をととのえているオレたち
いざ「解放運動を推進しよう」と言われると
「いや、ちょっとフザけてみただけさ・・・」
革命ごっこしかできないオレたち
これでは勝つことができない
オレたちは革命にビビっているのだ

オレたちは打つのが得意だ
オレたちは打つのが得意だ
オレたちはホラ話をつのが大好きで
オレたちは玉突きの玉をつのも大好きだ
クラップス・ゲームで博打を打つオレたち
仕事はほどほどにして街にたむろするオレたち
白人女めがけて視線を投げつけるオレたち
麻薬を腕に注射を打つオレたち
大晦日には銃やライフルをぶっ放すオレたち
今年の大晦日のこと
オレたちが撃つより多く警察がオレたちを撃つだろう
革命に立ち上がるという肝心のとき
オレたちはいったい何処に行っちまった
他所で油をうって・・・るのだろう
オレたちは革命にビビってるんだから

オレたちには大好きなものある
オレたちには大好きなものがある
クラーク・ゲーブルやらマリリン・モンローやらが愛し合う
そんな映画が大好きなオレたち
原地人を皆殺しにしちゃうターザン
そんな映画も大好きなオレたち
「ハイヨー!シルバー!」
と叫ぶローン・レンジャーが大好きなオレたち
オレたちはテレビコマーシャルが大好き
オレたちはテレビコマーシャルが大好き
 ♫サワヤカナ〜 オレタチダケノ〜世界ヘ〜
オレたちが大好きなこと
オレたちが大好きなこと
マルコムの演説を聴くこと
でもオレたちは本当にマルコムを愛していない
オレたちは好きなものがたくさんあっても
オレたち自身を愛することができない
オレも大好きなんだ
オレも大好きなんだ
オレはオレたちのことが大好きだ
オレはオレたちのことが大好きだ
なぜならオレたちとはオレのことだから
オレがオレ自身のことをキライなんておかしいだろ
オレは "変化"するオレたちが好きだ
オレは "フリ"するオレたちが好きだ
オレは "プレイ"するオレたちが好きだ
オレは "シュート"するオレたちが好きだ
ただ一つだけ オレたちのダメなところ
オレが好きになれないところ
それは・・・
オレたちが革命をビビってるということ


Niggers are scared of revolution
But niggers shouldn't be scared of revolution
Because revolution is nothing but change
And all niggers do is change

Niggers come in from work and change into pimping clothes
And hit the streets to make some quick change
Niggers change their hair from black to red to blond
And hope like hell their looks will change
Niggers kill other niggers just because one didn't receive the correct change
Niggers change from men to women, from women to men
Niggers change, change, change
You hear niggers say, "Things are changing? Things are changing?"
Yeah, things are changing
Niggers change into "Black" nigger things
"Black" nigger things that go through all kinds of changes
The change in the day that makes them rant and rave "Black Power, Black Power!"
And the change that comes over them at night
As they sigh and moan, "White thighs, white thighs"
Niggers're always goin' through bullshit change
But when it comes for real change
Niggers are scared of revolution.

Niggers are actors, niggers are actors
Niggers act like they are in a hurry
To catch the first act of the "Great White Hope"
Niggers try to act like Malcolm
And when the white man doesn't react toward them like he did Malcolm
Niggers want to act violently
Niggers act so cool and slick, causing white people to say
"What makes you niggers act like that?"
Niggers act like you ain't never seen nobody act before
But when it comes to acting out revolution
Niggers say, "I can't dig them actions!"
Niggers are scared of revolution

Niggers are very untogether people
Niggers talk about getting high and riding around in L's
Niggers should get high and ride to hell
Niggers talk about pimping
Pimping that, pimping what
Pimping yours, pimping mine
Just to be pimping is a hell of a line
Niggers are very untogether people
Niggers talk about the mind, talk about:
"My mind is stronger than yours," "I got that bitch's mind uptight!"
Niggers don't know a damn thing about the mind, or they'd be right
Niggers are scared of revolution

Niggers fuck, niggers fuck, fuck, fuck
Niggers love the word fuck
They've been told so fuckin' cute, then they fuck you around
The first thing they say when they're mad is, "Fuck it!"
You play a little too much with them, they say "Fuck you"
When it's time to TCB
Niggers are somewhere fucking
Try to be nice to them, they fuck over you
Niggers don't realize while they doin' all this fucking
They're getting fucked around
And when they do realize it's too late
So niggers just get fucked up
Niggers talk about fucking
Fuckin' that, fuckin' this, fuckin' yours, fuckin' my sis
Not knowing what they're fucking for
They ain't fucking for love and appreciation
Just fucking to be fucking
Niggers fuck White thighs, Black thighs
Yellow thighs, Brown thighs
Niggers fuck ankles when they run out of thighs
Niggers fuck Sally, Linda and Sue
And if you don't watch out, niggers will fuck you!
Niggers would fuck "fuck" if it could be fucked
But when it comes to fucking for revolutionary causes
Niggers say, "Fuck revolution!"
Niggers are scared of revolution

Niggers are players, niggers are players, are players
Niggers play football, baseball and basketball
While the white man is cuttin' off their balls
When the nigger's play ain't tight enough
To play with some black thighs
Niggers play with white thighs
To see if they still have some play left
And when there ain't no white thighs to play with
Niggers play with themselves
Niggers tell you they're ready to be liberated
But when you say "Let's go take our liberation"
Niggers reply, "I was just playin'!"
Niggers are playing with revolution and losing
Niggers are scared of revolution

Niggers do a lot of shootin'
Niggers do a lot of shootin'
Niggers shoot off at the mouth
Niggers shoot pool, niggers shoot craps
Niggers cut around the corners and shoot down the street
Niggers shoot sharp glances at White women
Niggers shoot dope into their arm
Niggers shoot guns and rifles on New Year's Eve
A new year that is coming in
Where white police will do more shooting at them
Where are niggers when the revolution needs some shots?
Yeah, you know, niggers are somewhere shootin' the shit
Niggers are scared of revolution.

Niggers are lovers, niggers are lovers are lovers
Niggers love to see Clark Gable make love to Marilyn Monroe
Niggers love to see Tarzan fuck all the natives
Niggers love to hear the Lone Ranger yell, "High ho, Silver!"
Niggers love commercials, niggers love commercials
How niggers love commercials:
"You can take niggers out of the country, but
You can't take the country out of niggers"
Niggers are lovers, are lovers, are lovers
Niggers loved to hear Malcolm rap, but they didn't love Malcolm
Niggers love everything but themselves
But I'm a lover too, yes I'm a lover too
I love niggers, I love niggers, I love niggers
Because niggers are me, and I should only love that which is me
I love to see niggers go through changes
I love to see niggers act
I love to see niggers make them plays and shoot the shit
But there is one thing about niggers I do not love
Niggers are scared of revolution
