FAMiliar Faces: Cubs the Poet.
Christopher Cubs aka Cubs the Poet, a street poet and spoken word artist, that calls New Orleans home. Mon-Sun you can find Cubs on Royal St. with his typewriter and some dope attire. He writes poems for a small fee, short or long, his flowing iambic footing leaves his readers lulled and always inspired. Find your way to NOLA. Go see Cubs the Poet. If you’re lucky, he might drop his spoken word/hip-hop album on you.
**this is the first of an ongoing series, in which I will do my best to document as many French Quarter artists as I can.
Cuz we feel like it
You can just say black people. Black POC is redundant
LOL yes. Black POC, as opposed to Black white people!?!?
Wow Black poc. Is this a ‘new term’? But back to your original question, the n word will always be controversial, no doubt about it. Its used casually for the same reasons you hear all the time. I digress, to mention that I prefer the term Black Americans. Black Americans have kinda embraced the n-word but only agree with its use in certain contexts. This is why the n-word will never go away and will always be controversial.
