I was in DR for a week
You know I'm vibing with my people, you know what I'm saying
Good to see my people everywhere
The last day, I heard what happen back in the states
This how I felt
Hopped off the plane in ATL, I'm feeling racist
This ain't me, I'm thinking weird I gotta change this
When I see their skin I can't help it bro I just think of him
All of my oppressor's suppressors pointing at melanin
But when he dropped the gun they arrest and call him a gentleman
This the work of the devil, the government the middleman
Cops killing us for sport but the prisons they ain't gone let 'em in
Try to play us like we stupid cause they scared of our intelligence
Now they claiming mental illness and they give 'em all the doubt
Let my brother get pulled over, boy I bet they try to choke em out
My people get blicked in the back because they running
Cops confused a phone for a gat now ain't that something
They killed another man cause he's black, they felt like hunting
Guess it was open season for the buffalos
Killed us like we animals or cattle they ain't gone stop us though
Feel like they infinity and 0 but if you ask me then is time to up the score
I'm reaching for the grip
I'm bout to dump the clip
But right before I blast I get to thinking bout his kids
And that's just what it is
He living in his sins
And if I let it off then imma be a hypocrite
Hopped off the plane in ATL, I'm feeling racist
This ain't me, I'm thinking weird I gotta change this
When I see their skin I can't help it bro I just think of him
All of my oppressor's suppressors pointing at melanin
I held my tongue for too long in fear of getting crucified
But when it's hitting close to home I had no choice but choose a side
It's blind leading the blind, but it ain't hard to see
Hatred filled within their hearts because my skin is rooted deep(uh)
The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice
We've been taught white lies cause they can't handle our truth
Now can you dig it, walking round in shackles but you free
It's crazy looking at the news thinking that could be me
Sheesh
Looking over my shoulder, the world is getting colder
And as I'm getting older, this happens over and over and over
We asking for some change but it don't make sense
We get life for nothing, they get a slap on the wrist I'm pissed
Cause how I'm supposed to raise a seed of my own
In the land of the free but it ain't safe outside your home
A couple bad apples made the batch look like it's rotten
Try to make us not remember something that can't be forgotten
I gotta love thy neighbor, I always show respect
Even when they talking crazy out the side of they neck
I'm not saying they're the same or just assume they're like the rest
But I know I feel the tension when they see me as a threat, and that's a bet
Hopped off the plane in ATL, I'm feeling racist
This ain't me, I'm thinking weird I gotta change this
When I see their skin I can't help it bro I just think of him
All of my oppressor's suppressors pointing at melanin
Tsk crazy
