Black People (America is Just Not That Into You)

Black People, Black People
the verdict will never be in your favor
no more marches
no more petitions
no more sit-ins

America is just not that into you.

You shall not overcome
let hope die a merciful death

Black President?
You thought that was love?
Ask yourself, are you better off in 2013,
than you were in 2008?

America never has and never will love you.

America is happy to let you entertain her,
Run Nigga Run
Dunk Nigga Dunk
Sing Nigga Sing
Dance Nigga Dance

Is Stop and Frisk Love?
Does America love you?
Go ask Emmit Till
Malcolm X
Medgar Evers
Amadou Diallo

Go ask Trayvon Martin.

You think America loves you,
because you get to stand in Paris
Rapping about Niggas in Paris,
while Gywneth bobs her blond head on stage?

You think America is post-racial,
You think Hip-Hop has changed the world.

From the sixteenth to the twenty-first century,
America has enslaved you, lynched you, segregated you,
incarcerated you, divided and conquered you.

America will never love you.
Take your talents, some place further than South Beach,
the American dream was never meant for you.
Always separate, never equal.
