Versuri (lyrics)  Black America Again 

Here we go, here, here we go again 
Trayvon’ll never get to be an older man 
Black chἰldren, they childhood stole from them 
Robbed of our names and our language, stole again 
Who stole the soul from black folk  
Same man that stole the land from Chief Black Smoke 
And made the whip crackle on our back slow 
And made us go through the back door 
And raffle black bodies on the slave blocks 
Now we slave to the blocks, on ’em we spray shots 
Leaving our own to lay in a box 
Black mothers’ stomachs stay in a knot 
We kill each other, it’s part of the plot 
I wish the hating will stop (war!) and the battle with us 
I know that Black Lives Matter, and they matter to us 
These are the things we gotta discuss 
The new plantation, mass incarceration 
Instead of educate, they’d rather convict the kids 
As dirty as the water in Flint, the system is 
Is it a felony or a misdemeanor  
Maria Sharapova making more than Serena 
It took Viola Davis to say this 
The roles of the help and the gangstas is really all they gave us 
We need Avas, Ta-Nehisis, and Cory Bookers 
The salt of the Earth to get us off of sugar 
And greasy foods, I don’t believe the news 
Or radio, stereotypes we refuse 
Brainwashed in the cycle to spin 
We write our own story, black America again 

You know, one way of solving a lot of problems that we’ve got is lettin’ a person feel that they’re important
And a man can’t get himself together until he knows who he is, and be proud of what and who he is and where he come from, and where he come from..

Hot damn, black America again
Think of Sandra Bland as I’m staring in the wind
The color of my skin, they comparing it to sin
The darker it gets, the less fairer it has been
The hate the hate made, I inherited from them
But I ain’t gon’ point the finger
We got annointed singers, like Nina, Marvin, Billie, Stevie
Need to hear them songs sometimes to believe me
Who freed me: Lincoln or Cadillac
Drinkin’ or battle raps.. or is it Godspeed that we travel at
Endangered in our own habitat
The guns and dope, man, y’all can have it back
As a matter of fact, we them lab rats
You build the projects for, now you want your hood back
I guess if you could rap, you would express it too
That PTSD, we need professionals
You know what pressure do, it make the pipes bust
From schools to prison, y’all, they tryna pipe us
Tell your political parties invite us
Instead of making voting laws to spite us
You know, you know we from a family of fighters
Fought in your wars and our wars
You put a ni*ga in Star Wars, maybe you need two
And then, maybe then we’ll believe you
See black people in the future
We wasn’t shipped here to rob and shoot ya
We hold these truths to be self-evident
All men and women are created equal
Including black Americans

You know, you know, you know, one way of solving a lot of problems that we’ve got is to let a person feel like somebody
And a man can’t get himself together until he knows who he is, and be proud of what and who he is and where he come from, and where he come from..

We are rewriting the black American story
We are rewritἰng the black American story
We are rewriting the black American story
We are rewritἰng the black American story
We are rewriting the black American story…
