The Black and White Race Trigger and James Baldwin’s “I Am Not Your Nigger”

Is anyone really Black or White?

As a day is split into morn and night?

What of the mixed races?

Shalt they be properly categorized

As Whack or Blight?

If you are White
Will you be contrite

if not so descriptively disfigured?

The predator in the history books is always Tiggered

Predetermined?

Look at your skin?

Does it spin splashy with tinged chagrin

into the exact definitive daily news hues
As social theory dominated rigor?

Or is it all just a human construct
Ala James Baldwin’s

I am not your black nigger!

A mental trigger

The Eugenic Right is White is Might

The American Racist’s Elixir

Devised to keep citizen’s ignorant

With a preternatural colorful superior

Economic Social and Political vigor
