    They painted him black
    it wasn't enough
    there was no jave
    just only i see stuff

    didn't have the pack
    but talks was whack
    this cat was painted
    black

    see Jack wannabe
    already free
    has no face of oppression
    felt no depression of pain
    just keep saying his stolen
    name he claimed

    his give away was under da sun
    he burn liquidfy red a breed of
    lilly not like brutha billy who just
    become blue see this a floatry of
    truth they painted him black

    his soul was multi color not black
    eyez green and nothing hanging
    like a sack don't know about smack
    just protraying black
    never been or lived in the ghetto
    don't know about flo-jo and mo neem
    haven't strived or been shoesless
    just bounce in all roofless can't
    taste anger or betray until i washed
    the blackness away to exposed his
    sorry fold but the wannabe found
    no friendz not even taken in just
    not black enough betraying as kin

    why they wanna be like me
    can't they see u need soul
    it's one thing we have thats
    deeper then gold and peep
    hold a strong pride inside see
    this black , not live jave

    don't know why they try so hard
    to disgrace my race and cross to
    dis side wit that cheap paint on the face
    i saw it crackin and peelin even the
    mission of whacky packy Mr.whity smogg

    They painted him black ................... :whip:

    This brings to mind those wretched minstrel shows, still portrayed today in some fashion. Trying to turn royalty into court jesters. Keep flowing with a conscience brotha.

    u know gempis just wan't black enough
    betraying the creed of our culture seed
    trying to fit in wanna be black it's so whack
    so i pack his crap gave him a slap and set his
    soul out in the cold u know they can be bold
    strollin the hood wit false love just to destroy
    our unity ..........Thankz a million sis.
