Blaxploitation


Blaxploitation...
Blaxploitation is...
Blaxploitation ain't what it used to be
Blaxploitation is brotha can you spare a dime
so I can buy my glass of wine?
Blaxploitation.
Blaxploitation is wondering
where are my reparations
to change my desperation?
situation?

i'm a hostage of my hostile society.
somebody please let lil’ black sambo out to eat his pancakes
so he can die in a war
and get buried in a negro cemetary

before we was blax
we was blaxploitation.
exploding in blaxnicity with afrocentricity.
can you feel my electricity?
maybe not, but you feel me right?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
