I am an American Born and raised
But Society tells me that my race was enslaved.
"WAS" I say
Because obviously we still are
To me we are everything but by far.
It's a shame how we fighting to be enslaved!!!
A thirst for prison
Seem to guide a Black man's decision.
See it's funny when a minority of a nation
Is the majority of its prison.
But you don't have to believe me
Just look at the statistics.
I'm just average observer
One of many critics.
I See how society has you fighting to be enslaved!!!
Still can't understand how after all these years
We still have a connecting urge for those chains.
Add a little gold to those shackles
and we will rob for it.
put a couple diamondsin them
and we will probably kill for it.
How you think it earned the term Blood diamonds.
But please keep fighting to be enslaved!!!
And watch one of these days
or maybe even years from now.
You going to wake up in 1829
Wondering why and how you was enslaved.
So keep sagging your pants
While rocking your big chains.
Speak "yo" slang !
Throw up yo signs and rep yo Gang.
But keep your eyes on the main pictures
and hope things don't change.
