A term derived from its sound as both "despair" and the ebonics or patwa phrase "dis spear." (Also could refer to "disappear.") Used in the song by the same name featuring Damian Marley and Nasir Jones, speaking heavily on the oppression and separation between the upper and lower classes, calling out to poor economic colored groups to use the mind as the "modern day spear."
"Hey, I say...Dispear, huh! Shaka Zulu, Bobo Shanti, Man a Gideon, Man a Mau Mau Warrior...Despair, eh!" -Damian Marley
