Anthony McPherson – “All Lives Matter: 1800s Edition”

All Lives Matter: 1800s Edition Just because I own slaves? Doesn’t mean I’m
racist I don’t even see color;
you’re racist for being slaves. My closest friends are house negroes – look. I didn’t ask to have all this cotton.
It’s not my fault that the cotton is profitable. Don’t blame me for something my grandfather’s
grandfather planted. And if cotton is so “bad,” why’re you wearing
it? Don’t act innocent; this is the fabric
of ALL our lives. You know what really just shines my shoes?
You can give birth to a light-skinned child, and everything’s fine.
But I put on a little bit of blackface, “Oh no! That’s racist!”
How? Blackface comes off. Your whiteface is forever. This is not the dream that Abraham Lincoln
gave speeches for. Racism ended with the three-fifths compromise. Everyone is equal
We have a black…overseer Slavery is a choice.
If you didn’t wanna get locked up? You should’ve kept running after we captured
your wife I mean, like, come on.
Make good decisions, or face the consequences. Blacks are 99% more likely
to try and escape North. (That’s not racist, that’s just a fact) When will you people realize
Underground railrounds only create racial divide? And why? We’re all red on the inside.
Look at your brother’s body. Rope doesn’t make his neck any different than
mine. My accountant hung himself so we’re all struggling
with something. Don’t judge a book
That you’re not allowed to read. My house is like two stories tops.
The real masters live in mansions; I’m a slave like you.
Only through love and working together can we get our emancipation.
Free the people? How about we the people.
Black lives matter? MMMM how about ALL…
lives matter

  1. Uhhh, I'm gonna need a rap genius annotation for this one Lmaoo All jokes aside

    But I put on a little bit of black face,

    Oh no that’s racist.


    Black face comes off,

    Your white face is forever.

  2. His energy is so fucking infectious and such a good contrast to the bleakness of what he's saying.

  3. There was a car experiment where white guys were vandalizing a car, and nobody called the cops, they only said "be careful" then before the black dudes came in for their experiment they were sleeping in the car and people were already calling the cops on them "oh i think they might have drugs….yea there sleeping in a car."

  4. He understands 😭 If only society were committed to being less blind, they'd 'see' through every single metaphor he makes here. well done 👏

  5. Hilarious. If you can, do the 1900s editon. "When will you people learn sit-ins only create racial divide." That would be funny!

  6. wtf?! This is embarrassing. He wishes he was white sooooooo bad! I'm even more embarrassed for anyone that thinks there is anything funny or of substance here. AIU has made some funny critics of this hack. Now that's some funny shit. Target is hiring on line Tony.

  7. Hi, I'm doing a presentation on Anthony McPherson. If anyone can give me any information on him or ways to get into contact with him, please let me know. Thank you.

  8. This is one of my favorite pieces of spoken word ever, every time I listen to it I am SHOOK, what a clever poet he is!

  9. All lives matter. 2017 edition. Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter

  10. all lives matter is like having one house in a neighbourhood on fire and having the fire department spray water on all the houses.

    All lives matter didn't exist before black lives matter, the same goes for straight pride existing after gay pride. Everyone just has to feel special.

  11. That 399 dislikes are the ones who got slaves but won't admit they racist 🐸☕️

  12. Okay stop using Slavery in Africa and black on black crime. Do whites kill whites? Yes they do. Do blacks kill blacks? Yes they do. Do they deserve equal rights, even though they kill their own race? Yes, they damn well deserve rights. Also, WORRY ABOUT AMERICA FIRST! If you live in Africa then you can talk about the slavery there. If you wanna talk about other countries, then I hope your gonna help end world hunger. This is to all the haters in the comments. It's so fucking annoying when people say "all lives matter". Well no duh, Sherlock. Of course we know that all lives matter. When we said "black lives matter", it meant "black lives matter too".

  13. In light of the Nazi fucks in Charlottesville, coming back to his poetry to try to fucking b r e a t h e

  14. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👌

  15. "Black lives matter" doesn't mean that "Black lives matter more than white lives". It's simple really, every life matters but black lives need to be seen more for just a minute of your privileged time.

  16. He made me mad asf. But I had to remember, this is sarcasm, he's on our side.(Black side).

  17. Dope music awesome Cool good Listen wow speak special man Good brother Cool vibe soul music best ever really mam

  18. I imagine this is what Kanye meant when he said slavery was a choice😒

  19. I was thinking the same thing at the end when someone yelled “well done” like wow just wow

  20. This guy is actually insane. Watch "Angry Unfunny Biracial Man Claps Back Against Whites"

  21. i can't believe i typed in the words "reverse racist jesus slam" and i got the exact poem i was looking for. a;ksjd;kfj

  22. You are the eternal victim. It must be nice to benefit from white AND black privilege.
