Hello, I'm Johnny Rebel. For a long time we've listened to these niggers pitch a fit, 'bout their hard times, and civil rights. Well, ain't that the pits? So I think I'll take me an imaginary trip, and try to be a nigger for a day.

If I could be a nigger for a day
I could live my life the free and easy way
I'd take from Uncle Sam and let the white man pay
If I could be a nigger for a day

Now for one whole day, a nigger I could be
The first thing I'd do is join the NAACP
And I'd let Fwyzee and Foo-May do my thinkin' for me
If I could be a nigger for a day

Now I wouldn't wanna work, 'cause I wouldn't have to
Guess what I'd do next, well, you shouldn't need a clue
I'd go down to social services like all the brothers do
If I could be a nigger for a day

Oh if I could be a nigger for a day
I could live my life the free and easy way
I'd take from Uncle Sam and let the white man pay
If I could be a nigger for a day

Now when I'd sit down in that office, the office of welfare
I'd get food stamps, a medical card, and free child care
For all the illegitimate kids that I've got scattered everywhere
If I could be a nigger for a day

Now I'd have plenty of time, so I'd hang out with a mob
And I'd consume a little dope, or find a good place to rob
Now that would make me self-employed and I wouldn't even need a job
If I could be a nigger for a day

Oh if I could be a nigger for a day
I could live my life the free and easy way
I'd take from Uncle Sam and let the white man pay
If I could be a nigger for a day

And when I'd need somethin' I'd steal it so I wouldn't have to buy it
And if the cops would apprehend me you know that I'd deny it
And I could call Jesse or Al, they'd come and start a riot
If I could be a nigger for a day

But I can't be a nigger, and I don't really have to be
'Cause coon, let me tell ya, it's plain and simple to see
That if I was you for a day then I'd be taking from me
So I don't wanna be a nigger for a day

I don't wanna be a nigger for a day
I don't wanna live the free and easy way
I'll struggle long, and struggle hard, but that's okay
'Cause I'll never be a nigger for a day
No, I'll never be a nigger for a day

    General CommentActually, he could. He's still alive, jackass.

    And General Lee was smart. He surrendered cause he couldn't win. Not everyone knows when to give up.

    ^^^^ Well, if you had any brains, I would give up on trying to ram your anti-racist POV down other people's throats.

    General Commentwhy do we blog? why do we unanimously post our opinions here? Are any of us truely concerned over racial issues at this moment? Anyone who believes this is a medium for change in any direction is either deceiving themselves or simply a fool. we post here because we are lonely. we wish to express opinions passionately and can not do it in a more personal way. He said nigger a lot, wow. The internet has become an escape we go to in order to avoid this loneliness. It has failed us. Many of us will die old and lonely. Me most definitely included.
