BECAUSE, I AM

In the ghetto we play the game of jugglin' potions that manipulate emotions.
Where people of color pray to the gods of their white-conquerers ONLY because we are ignorant to the notions.
So we steal & kill each because OUR choices of Universities aren't as wide as the choices we have in prisons.
But, why lock a muthafucka' up when we already doing a life sentence in existence?
In the time-length that California built 1 University, they build 32 prisons,

 so why blame our youth when it is YOU who chooses NOT to listen.


If your plans are to build MORE cells than schools, then your plan for us is evident.
You claim to be fixing other Countries, but don't even help your fellow U.S. resident,
simply because you aren't overseas to help, but to steal resources & build your companies.
By the day they can defend themselves you've already colonized them & established your monopolies.
Without identity & culture, they're lost & runnin' around like chickens with their heads cut off.
So then you leave & you watch 'em kill each other & you want to come back to play the HERO once they forgot,
They forgot that you placed them there to begin with, so of course they look upon you as their god.
And, so we portray god as a whiteman, and I break this down why?
Because I am-fuckin'-tired of seeing my people living a lie!
