My name is Joshua ( ) ah – born and raised in South Auckland ( ). What I wanna share with your today is something very close to the heart – spoken word poetry.
I am Brown. Brown like a palm tree – bark of palm tree which supports my heritage. Brown like the table of which my family sits and eat upon. Brown like the paper bag containing burgers and fries by which my people consume. Brown like the mud on a Rugby field by which my people play. Brown like the coat of the guitar by which my people strum. Brown like the sugar or the crust, the grain or the nut, whatever ingredient you want to use to mix up and around, see my Brother – I AM BROWN.
My demographic is high school, cleaning ladies, fast food burger making, factory box packing, rubbish truck drivers, bus drivers, taxi drivers, sober drivers, living off the pension-joy-riders. I’m a drop out.
I hate, Science, Maths, English. Love PE., music, dance and drama. I play Rugby. No – I’m pretty good at Rugby. And if I’m lucky my future in Rugby might be sealed, not to reveal my flaws in educations which I’m about to – Hey! Who needs to be able to quote Shakespeare if you can play Rugby.
I will probably never graduate and if I do, I will be the first. Either by myself or with a baby in or beside me, victim of teen – preg – nancy with a guy in high school ( ) – Which really sucks.
You see, when push came to shove he couldn’t pay the bucks while I was focusing on this relationship I was trying to get my NC A 1,2,3 ( ) on luck, now I am stuck in the muck trying to scrub my skin with Lux soap.
Trying to scrub away the fat that I’ve added to the Brown statistic. While my mother is a gambler and my father is an alcoholic, I will always bring the government and everybody else around me but never myself because I am Brown.
And whenever someone tries to breach my comfort zone and whenever I don’t have anything else to say in defense and argument, I’m just gonna say that: “Your a racist.” That your words are a mockery to my skin tone and my color. Every Brown Brother you were doing that the day performed Cinderella – bro-town and ( ) reading and do I have to mention the G.C.
Now, I don’t mean to condescend them, these shows are great, don’t get me wrong. But can anyone explain; will there ever be a time when our representation goes deeper than putting our own people to shame? Will the stereotype illiterate, misbehaved, unintelligent, Polynesia still be the same? Will it ever change? Or are we still gonna sell ourselves short for a few seconds of fame? Are we not capable of an art form that is though provoking or seen as a form of intelligence? Or are we still gonna keep to our low standards of what we feel as culturally relevant? Source: LYBIO.net
Now I’m not saying that we need a – instead of mocking our traditions, we need to start being real about the world that we live in. Like our fight against drugs, or are fight against violence, or our fight against what reasonable force is – with out kids.
Or how statistically ( ) the Pacific Island is – a low academic achieve – Brown Brother.
No, now, I’m not saying we need to forget our culture in order to gain, for we are all the same. I’m saying that I’m sick and tired of my people thinking that they belong at the bottom of the food chain, Brown Brother.
Are we not more than a F.O.B. Immigrants from the islands in search of a J.O.B. Are we not more than the eye can see. Can we not move mountains from A to point B? Are we not more than the S than the first 15. Are we not more than gamblers at a poker machine? Are we not more than – than gems and golden teeth, are we not more than – than our (Gamers) at the T.A.B., are we not capable of attaining a Bachelors, a Masters or a P.H.D., Brown Brother – look at me.
You can do all things through Christ, Philippines – 413 – you are more than capable. And I don’t just say that to make you feel better, I say that cause I know. Our creator told me to tell you so. You will go places, you will tell stories, so do not feel alone for your God, your family and your home will forever be inside the marrow of your bones so do not fret. Do not regret. Cause where ever you go, you take us with you. Brown Brother do not be afraid to be the first; the first to graduate, the first to climb, the first Prime Minister or the first good wife, Brown Brother. Do not be afraid to be the change, not a change in skin tone or color but a change in mind set, from one Brown Brother to another.
