    Conscious man and woman
    knowing things are not as they seem
    knowing there's no real American dream
    realizing the only way we grow
    is as a people
    and as we divide
    we die inside
    flesh keeps on living, walking the Earth like zombies
    believing that racism's dead while the devil's among me
    when I say the devil..man he runs this country
    Dangerous Minds...they try to hold in check
    keep us broke, with no respect
    we're not beneath you, but we're all around you
    hovering over like hawks, until it's time to eat
    but we can't devour your rotten meat
    we feast on knowledge
    we feast on love
    love of one another, but at times we fast
    These Dangerous Minds...they try to hold back
    pit us against eachother
    glorify hating our own black skin and women
    for a dollar, and like fools we take
    and disintegrate
    leaving a bloody mess
    of our own black flesh
    Our Dangerous Minds....we need to check ourselves
    they can't stop us, but we hold ourselves back
    walking in reverse, self-destructive acts
    that's why they love, to see us hate
    reflections in the mirror
    we must embrace

    They sit back & grin cuz we're doing their work 4 them, still.

    The masters of tricknology have tricked us into believin, all is fine & dandy so we'd relax & forget about our past which isn't 2 far in the past.

    We fight each other while our adversaries watch, thinking soon, they won't have enough soldiers 2 fight the battle & they'll be in the same boat as the Natives, [email protected] near extinct.

    Speak on it, brother.

    Thank you. It a shame, but it is fact. They love to see us hate eachother. They love us to act ignorant so they can say "See, that's what I'm talking about". Thank you all for reading and responding. :peace: Much Love too.
