Nubians/Moors - Twelve Tribes - Blood Brothers
This shirt was designed based on my poem below -
twelve tribes fast asleep once the greatest nation
genocide is homicide of a generation.
i give you twelve tribes an afrakan connection
time is in the crystal and so is your reflection.
the first son Reuben became a Seminole,
a son of Israel, his land was stole.
Simeon and Levi. Dominican and Haitian,
three true brothers of the same nation.
the forth brother Judah, shaped the Negroes,
robed of heritage now nobody knows.
Zebulon the fifth of Pan-American shores,
they took his keys and locked his doors.
Ishtar the sixth of Mexico,
he is a man of color, his pyramids show.
the seventh brother, the tribe of Gad.
the paleface took what this Indian had.
Asher was the father of Brazil,
his bread was fat and so was his will.
Naphtali, the brother Argentine,
his presence was dark and his body was lean.
Ephraim and Manasseh, grandsons of Jacob.
Puerto Rico and Cuba, no one could breakup.
in the West Indies, the twelfth brother Benjamin,
you know he was a brother so you know he’s a friend.
these twelve tribes, sons of Jacob
in the paleface image wore plenty make-up.
power and cake all over our face
that’s his lie so your time don’t waste.
when i’m speakin’ bout my people, i’ll always do my best
cause i’m just another brother from the wild wild west
i came to be through years of procreation
to give some info bout the greatest nation
i’m not preachin’ parables, i’m tellin’ our story
the teacher is the student who doesn’t know me
the student is the teacher who teaches to be free...
