I'M Just A Nigger

I get no respect, no rights
'cause I'm just a nigger.

'dem whites run over us, like da dirt on da ground.
'cause were just some niggers.

can't read or write, can't have no freedom.
'cause I'm just a nigger.

Master ain't knowin' I don learned,
'cause I'm just a nigger.

i think this poem may have fallen short of its intended purpose. i see what you were trying to accomplish, but the Uncle Remus dialect distracted me somewhat from the overall theme. you've got a good idea here, but i'd develop it some more. Carl Sandburg wrote a famous poem called 'Nigger'. it's here on PH. check it out. Jake
It's real good... not much else can describe it. Tibbs
