And Neither Will I

He thought about the nine-minute
tape, he thought about the smug,

complacent, uncaring, in-your-face
look on the white guy whose knee

was on the neck of the black guy
and he was filled with anger and

directed it to the white guy, “You
no good, rotten, worst of us guy,

why, why, why?” And the guy
smugly did reply, “Because I be

da guy; I be da man and that’s

why I can,” (smugly, sarcastically
mimicking black phraseology)

“Well, you aren’t anymore. You
aren’t anymore. You will put a

knee on a neck never ever, ever
again. And neither, will I.”
