Put my fist in her like a civil rights sign
Fisting is a sex technique where the entire hand is inserted into the vagina (we can’t post a picture, go look it up). In the next line he goes on to say he grabbed it with a slight grind and held it there until the right time, resulting in the powerful orgasm we hear shortly after.
A raised fist was a sign of black power in the ‘60s and '70s. Tommie Smith and John Carlos are famous, not only for medaling at the Olympics, but for putting on black gloves and holding their fists in the air while the National Anthem played during the medal ceremony. They knew despite the fact they performed abroad for their country, they would be discriminated against again upon returning to the United States.
Smith and Carlos also used symbolism such as bare feet, necklaces, pins, and the shirts they wore underneath to deepen the message. It wasn’t just “black power,” but also about poverty and the struggle for social justice.
The new revolution is sexual. Using the image and power of a fist, Kanye compares sexual freedom to civil freedom. This line is a celebration of sexual liberation disguised as misogyny. If it’s consensual, we have no right to judge Kanye nor the woman. Every person has the right to engage in whatever form of sexual intercourse they desire, especially if it culminates in an orgasm (see below). The lyric intends to unite the socially conservative with the progressive by offending both of them, proving haters to be either stuck in the past or hypocritical.
