I Am Using The “n- Word” - Poem by Hebert Logerie

I Am a Negro
Je suis un Noir
Yo soy un Negro
I am a great Negro
Je suis un grand Noir
Yo soy un gran Negro
I am using the “N –Words”
And I’m not afraid to say so
We, Black People, have broken the swords
With our robust and powerful backs
I hope that they’ve kept tracks
Of the Negroes’ accomplishments
We’ve vanquished the foes and the elements
I will not stop expressing myself freely
I am telling you as loud as I can
That I am proud to be African
Haitian, Afro-American
West-Indian, Caribbean
I am all of the above
I am a great person
Who enjoys having fun
I am a peaceful black dove
I love my people wholeheartedly
I am expressing myself freely
And convincingly, I am a Man
I am a proud Black Man
I am who I am, I’m who I am
I love to eat and enjoy yam
Mango, jaca, and watermelon
I am a good person
I am a Negro, a real Man
I just used the “N-Letter”
Now I feel stronger, prouder
Larger, and obviously better
I am a great Negro
Je suis un grand Noir
Yo soy un gran Negro
J’aime mon miroir
I love my mirror
Quelle Grandeur!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Nobody should use the 'N-word' to insult a Black Man or to ridicule any dark skin people. This is a tribute all Black People. There is one race: the HUMAN RACE. There is no black, brown, yellow, red or white race.
