    brotha's and sista's can you not see
    that the world aint a safe place for you or me
    we have been through ever trial and tribulation
    to prove that our black ppl can make it in this nation
    for many years THE MAN enslaved our bodies
    and tried to make pickin cotton our only hobby
    they thought we were inferior
    a disgrace to the human race
    but ooh what a surprise they got
    when we stood up to them toe to toe and face to face
    see what we can accomplish when we stand together
    but that togetherness didn't last forever

    brotha's and sista's can you not see
    that instead of fighting them, your fighting you and me
    we're killing our kids by sellin drugs
    they dont need to get high, but be loved
    i'm not tryin to be hard on my black folks
    but show ya'll that WE ARE OUR ONLY HOPE
    this time its not THE MAN in our way
    cuz the ball is in our hands today
    see, at first we struggled and the man fought us
    we struggled harder and the man lost to us
    but now we're strugglin and fightin each other
    can't you see the problem sista's and brotha's?
    but i'm not gonna let my sanity be robbed
    i'm just gonna place it in the hands of God
    cuz i did my job and brought to your attention
    that the struggle wasn't gone
    it was just on vacation...
