If i can’t do
what i want to do
then my job is to not
do what i don’t want
-Nikki Giovanni, from Choices
Not sure why or how anyone would ever try to do Nikki but it didn’t go as well as they were expecting it to. As you can imagine, there are some phrases and questions left in the English language that will still garner the stereotypical response from people that are so real… so much themselves… they are divine in their ability to be the same yesterday as today. Revolutionary poet and human rights activist, Nikki Giovanni has always been one of those people. Most of us know that. We know her. Don’t we?
We are poets and we know it but damn son! We had to set this one off right for the lady with the extracurricular class of cold blood. You may not be ready for her take on America’s brand new favorite beef-magnet bigot. #BraceYourself
For some reason someone asked revolutionary, multiple award-winning poet and black champion, Nikki Giovanni what she thought about Donald Dumps. Perhaps it was his or her call of duty. The Black Freq Sheets didn’t have the money to afford a ticket to the once-in-a-lifetime event. Clearly there’s still one soul left that don’t know better than to ask Nikki Giovanni her thoughts on anything Jim Crow.
“The best thing that could happen to America would be if Trump and Pence were on a plane that crashed and burned,” she spoke in a recent interview with Huffington Post.
Did anyone read Gemini: An Extended Autobiographical Statement On My First Twenty-five Years of Being a Black Poet? Remember the part when she sliced her finger open to prove how bad she was to the neighborhood bully. Remember that she was 4 years old when she did that? #ThatWay #SheMustNotKnowNikki #LikeWeKnowHer
For some strange reason the reporter or whoever tf wasn’t educated in the vocal styling of Nikki. They didn’t know she kicks more ish than FIFA on a bad day and the earth is her battlefield. Life is not EA Sports.Sp why she was actually asked if she wanted to reword her quote to something less inflam lmbo matory… Yes #ThatWay. We don’t know why they don’t know Nikki like we do. If we haven’t lost you to that pain in your side and if you can manage to stop cramping with laughter. Check out what the activist and Thug Life tatted, 74 year old luminary said next:
“I’m old and I learned many years ago that I shouldn’t say what I don’t mean. Print every word of it. I’m not re-wording anything. My heart breaks for the next generation with these fools in the white house. Asking us to give Trump a chance is like asking Jews to give Hitler a chance,” Nikki said.
Forget about it! Nikki Giovanni belongs to us and she is not going anytime soon. We’re willing to bet never. It’s also interesting to note that despite several blacks swiping their token card at Dump’s invitation. The Huff Post also reported her saying she wouldn’t give Pmurt a chance to speak in the name of redemption, saying that she didn’t want to be used as a political prop… and he is past that… smh #NotSureWhereThisJournalistGraduated #ButItDamnSureWasntFiskUniversity #AdiosMios
“If I had a chance to talk to Hitler I’d say nothing. If Satan sits next to you what do you say? Satan is not looking for conversation. He wants a weakness to exploit. Trump also would not listen and only a fool would try to reason with him. He is beyond redemption,” she concluded.
There was some parting of the clouds and revealing of a lil’ light but it didn’t drop any hot fiyah. Nikki Giovanni made it a point to communicate her perspective of whites and how at the end of the day, it’s up to us as individuals to exercise discernment.
“All white people are not alike. You have right-wing fools sucking America dry, and crazy racist in powerful positions. However, there are great people in all colors. Good and bad in all colors. The people at the Women’s Marches were good people. You can’t let the fools make you think everybody is a fool. You need to learn the difference between the good and the bad,” she said.
