Not a Citizen

prisoner-not-citizen

I can’t be President
I’m not a citizen
not an Amerikan, I’ve never been

First I was a slave,
now I’m a felon
criminalized for my skin complexion

I’m not a citizen
I can’t vote for President
sit on a jury, or license a business
Old Jim Crow calls it felon disenfranchisement

Lakini gani ya 14th Amendment?
That makes you Amerikan, makes you a citizen
Si, the 14th Amendment only legally subjects us to the
laws of this nation as a resident,
so we can be sent to prison
Re-enslaved, read the 13th Amendment

Section 1

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

That means you’re a slave by virtue of criminal conviction
Is that why slavery never ended?
Wait, I’m not finished

Section 2

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”

That’s how they legalized mass incarceration
Even former prisoners are still slaves, subject to free labor
either in society or on neoplantations.

I’m not a citizen
What about the 15th Amendment?
Old Jim Crow says voter disenfranchisement
To current and former prisoners, no one listens
Locked outside the political system
We have no representative politicians, without millions, we’re constituents of no one.

The ballot or the bullet,
so they criminalized us having guns
What about the 2nd Amendment?
Old Jim Crow says no niggers with guns
gun disenfranchisement.

We are milllions let us overthrow the government
write a new constitution, elect out own President
take this land we’ve built over 400 miaka, four centuries, damn it!

Quiet or Mr. White Privilege may hear.
I have free speech.
That’s called seditious conspiracy; that’s called treason.
That’s why we’ll never be citizens.
