Rappin’ Social Theory Vol. 1, “Nigger Duplicity”

Right here at ‘Nation Time’, black humanity suffers from a highly contagious condition I call, nigger duplicity. And the great perpetrators of nigger duplicity are…the black leaders themselves, black men…Today, the honorable and acceptable energy of black men, is to be free from the apron strings of the black woman…Whether the black man is a heart surgeon, a rich and much acclaimed ‘Wilt the Stilt’, or a nigger right off the streets – whether their motives, or motions, are interpreted vertically, horizontally, reflectively, or futuristically, black men want to be free to indulge in self-designed, self-proclaimed, gloriously-prescribed personal freedoms, which have nothing at all to do with the black woman…

– Evangeline Grant Redding, “Nothing: The Mentality of the Black Woman” (1974)
