If you are Caucasian, Asian, or of Middle Eastern persuasion
everyone wants to be black for the occasion
You wear saggy jeans and you come off like this
Do you really know what its like to be black and dissed
You say "What's up cuz" and you pimp out your ride
But do you know what it feels to have black pride
You talk with "swaga" and you drop it like its hot
But cops dont pull you over
cuz they profilen' cuz you aint' black like me
Have you been through the struggle?
Can you feel the pain?
At night when you sleep, Do you pray to God that tomorrow wont be the same
FOr you see Blacks are educated, motvated and stimulated
because they know their people died for them
We came a ong way baby or so they say
But they still lynch us and hiss us
and we got a Black President Today
So why do you want to be black in today's society with all the-
negativity, poverty, and un-equality that comes with the color of black skin
Everyone wants to be black but no one wnats to be black
So how will it all end.
