About the Book
Nigger is a persistent and rebellious word in the history and vocabulary of the United States of America, and plays a significant role in centuries of terrorist acts against African Americans. Yet, within the Black community, a curious familial bond with the word has existed through generations of slavery until today. Nigga Please!!! Remember Who You Were Before You Were Told Who You Should Be, presents a theory grounded in ancient and present day Ethiopian nobility which may explain why this is so, and why the ruling class found it necessary to corrupt its original sovereignty. Nigga Please juxtaposes this theory against the blasphemous language and behaviors of Rap, Gangsta Rap and aspects of Hip Hop culture intersecting with multi-ethnic versions of nigga being exploited and abused worldwide to the detriment of African American youth, young adults, and our communities. Remember Who You Were offers a basic metaphysical model for re-imaging America’s most enduring dilemma and a prescription for healing from generational traumas as we move towards restoring our people to our original greatness. The Honorable Marcus Garvey believed that “if we as a people knew the greatness from which we came, we would be less likely to disrespect ourselves.” Black survival and the rich musical legacy African Americans have contributed to the world gives us cause to celebrate our humanity and creativity. Gangsta lyrics give us nothing to be proud of.
