    I can say whatever I want and become whatever I want to be because I'm from the home of the brave and the land of the free. Where we pay a high price with blood and sacrifice and soul is taxed beyond the point of redemption. America has ridden my black back for a long long time; we have always produced millions and haven’t seen a dime. Instead of a job or reparations all I have is this welfare line. Where we feed off government cheese and we will rob you for yours. Killing, stealing, pimping and drug dealing is what makes this soar.

    Here every vote counts and opportunity knocks at your front door. Go right ahead buy into and sell out and become America's whore. Believe that emancipation and those amendment rights, whites just wrote that sh*t so they can sleep well at night. One crack of the masta's whip would have a slave in tears now one word from The Mans lips be haven blacks in fear. While in the pursuit of happiness lady liberty rode me high to my death, living the American dream taking my last breath. We spun the Wheel of Fortune and keep coming up short and shorter so Hi welcome to McDonalds may I take Your order.

    Every land that has been conquered and every war that has been fought from past to present you needed my assistance and I'm still not worthy to be the next president. Life here in this place has dealt us allot of pain in order to grow we need sunshine as well as rain.

    There was no honor among thieves when my fathers stole me. Today we have developed our own society with secret handshakes and language they can’t break. White boys trying to show love saying ni**ah, feeling cool while behind the times wearing Hilfiger. Being black is not a mask that goes on and comes off. It's a gift giving by the almighty above.

    Today fighting on many fronts playing in the sand rifle in our hand they ask me and my man to "hold the line" although many are dieing for no apparent reason. Our country has committed the biggest crime of treason.
    Bravest humans on earth now you home and your time is done you wont even receive a hero’s welcome. :thinking:
