    Go ahead and bash him
    Call him names
    Uncle Tom
    The White Man's *****
    A black face
    Fronting the conservative game
    Look at him with scorn
    Hand over heart
    Reciting "Of thee I sing"
    An Ivy League *****
    Part of the right wing

    But I'll tell you something
    I'm very proud of him
    Proud of any Black man
    At the top of his profession
    And to tell you the truth
    I'm diggin what he's saying
    Will you call me names
    Because of that confession

    He sits on the Bench
    Of the highest court in the land
    Setting the course of American law
    With a stroke of a pen
    Resting in his black hand
    A black hand
    Black
    That my friends, ain't no ******** job

    yea

    i feel you
    but most people
    feel even he has this power
    he won't change any thing
    he'll just keep status quo
    as usual.

    and what has he really done?
