    You talk about a Conspiracy and the loss of the Blackman’s wealth.
    You point your finger at others, but never at yourself.
    You say that drug dealers are operatives of the C.I.A.
    But when they sell drugs to you and yours – suddenly it’s OK!
    You talk about Foreigners and what they take of yours, but, you’ve never
    even tried to visit a distant or foreign shore.
    You brag about your independence and your so-called wealth, but, you’re
    so self-centered, you don’t even spend it on yourself.
    You gossip worse than twenty women in a Cathouse Chat, but, when the
    conversation gets heated you run like a Fat Rat.
    So spare me the Conspiracy, because you’re Conspiring against yourself.
    Spare me the Conspiracy, you’re ruining your own health.
    It’s time that we Blacks took some responsibility for where we’re at today.
    Let’s be more responsible both at work and at play.
    So spare me the Conspiracy, it’s been going on before I was born.
    Spare Me the Conspiracy, it’ll still be here when I’m gone.

    One
    Basic
    Truth can
    Be used as
    A foundation for
    A mountain of lies,
    And if we dig down deep
    Enough in the mountain of lies,
    And bring out that truth, to set it
    On top of the mountain of lies; the entire
    Mountain of lies will crumble under the weight of
    That one truth, and there is nothing more devastating to a
    Structure of lies then the revelation of the truth upon which
    The structure of lies was built, because the shock waves of
    The revelation of the truth reverberate, and continue to
    Reverberate throughout the Earth for generations to
    Follow, awakening even those
    People who had no
    Desire to be
    Awakened
    To the
    truth.
