As Seen On Youtube: Dean Atta’s ‘I Am Nobody’s Nigger’ Video

Can’t really fault this, can you? Simple yet effective video for Dean’s topical poem from early in the month, already on 21,000 views.

Possibly the most baffling thing about the vid is Scorcher (the rapper), is nowhere near as scary looking as G.R.E.Ed.S, (the poet), even with Scorcher’s eye tattoo.

There’s a lesson in there. Possibly a poem.

    The word nigger is still not challenged enough. This piece cuts right to the core of why such a word has no place in this world. The reclaimed argument is pathetic. Fantastic piece.
