    They look upon themselves, with so much shame,
    Embarrassed by who they are, embarrassed by their name.
    They feel their heritage is a disgrace,
    They wish they could be from another place,

    They see their people and then they hide,
    They have no heart and they have no pride,
    No knowledge of their history, No knowledge of their past,
    You try to tell them, but they only laugh,

    They try to erase their elements of culture,
    They rip it apart scavenging vultures,
    If they could, they would sell it away,
    And not have to deal with it another day,

    If their heritage were an object, they would let it break,
    They would continue to lie and continue to be fake,
    They should love their culture and love their pride,
    They should show their roots and not let it hide,

    They should not scowl at us, as if we’re the enemy,
    They should be proud, of their true identity.
