And you thought racism was dead?
Who dropped you on your head?
At least Sterling’s slaves get bank.
Just what the fuck’s your rank?
And you call yourself, “a pro!”
You ain’t nothing but a ho!
You sell yourself each day,
as you watch your soul decay.
In the ring, you’re knocked about,
’cause there ain’t no other way out.
You’re like Muhammad Ali.
who got stung by Massa’s bee.
You’re just a puppet on Massa’s string
who will bend and kiss his ring.
He made you president,
another White House resident.
You think that slavery’s gone?
You’re still ole Massa’s pawn.
He shoves us back and forth.
It’s the same if you head north.
You can’t escape the bonds of hate.
Massa’s got such tempting bait.
Massa owns just everything.
You can’t fly with a broken wing.
Massa can cut you down to size.
If you lose, you get no prize.
That’s the way it’s always been
Massa just looks on with a grin.

I can’t walk down the goddamn street wearing a hoodie without getting shot by some racist ass shit. I can’t fucking buy a house without hearing about “mud people and ghetto loans” from Wells Fargo racist shits. I can’t fucking do a goddamn thing without some racist shit all up in my face.
