    4 centuries if free labor...
    Building the western hemisphere into a paradise
    where U can escape the mundane...If U have the cheddar.
    Where U can move 2 if U wanna live life better...
    If you're European or Asian.
    Have a massive migration
    & they'd gladly accept the numbers 4 their census.
    Have U attend school & they'll pay your tuition
    even though you're not an AmeriKKKan citizen.
    But the only brown skins are given is hard times.

    We were here at the birth of this country & helped gain it's liberation.
    We were some of the best of the Union's soldiers when
    the Civil War engulfed the nation...
    Cuz we were told that if we joined their forces,
    we'd escape enslavement.
    Afterwords, a choice few were freed by Lincoln's
    Emancipation Proclamation, cuz the Union had 2 punish the states
    that were part of the Confederation somehow.
    So now they had 2 pledge allegiance 2 the Re-united States of AmeriKKKa
    2 get back on Uncle Sam's good side.
    The idea of the Civil War being fought 2 free the slaves
    is a peckerwood lie...

    Like the 40 acres & a mule...
    Being seperate but equal...
    I think it's about time 4 AmeriKKKa 2 be sued 4 what's owed 2 us.
    O.J. had 2 pay & the court found him innocent.
    O.K., so U say U don't know who are the slaves descendants,
    But there are records of slaves bein' owned, right?
    So 4 each name on the lists, give 40 acres of land 2 the blak community.
    Seperate the nation & let us go 2 our land peacefully
    without the white man imposing so we could finally live equally.
    We could still conduct business with the white states but,
    keep 'em out.
    We're employed in every occupation in this land
    so our success isn't even a doubt.
    Take all our brothers & sisters from their military & employ them in ours,
    cuz we're gonna need protection 4 our nation...

    Now when I speak of kindred I don't mean just cuz U have brown skin 2...
    Cuz bein' a brother or sister is completely mental.
    Just like bein' an Uncle Tom.

    So I firmly stand on my demand of "Give us our reperations".
    So we can repair our nation in the form of land ownership...
    And don't forget...
    We have Johnny Cochran.

    There's much to say about this piece, it's awesome, we can only hope it's that easy. But PositiveMindset, we got a lot of work to do...a lot of hard work. Surely I am lingering on these words.
