IT IS IN BLACK AND WHITE BUT SOON I WILL TURN INTO COLOR

  IT’S IN BLACK AND WHITE BUT SOON IT WILL TURN INTO COLOR

You cannot be a dog if you’re a cat
You cannot be an elephant if you’re a monkey
You cannot make a zebra into a rat
And  you can’t be a racist if you’re a full blown junkie

Now give me a  minute and I’ll fluently explain
A white dude will kiss the ass of any African American who has dope to end his pain

When a white man is dope sick color and place of origin don’t matter
Fat or skinny
Short, tall,
They are all compelled to love them all
All the ones who’d join an army of white men to rape, humiliate and hate the African American and hang them on twenty foot American Flag pole
With humiliation their united goal
And not a one of them would look back
But then there are junkies who have to bow to black 

Believe me, there’s a reason they are selling dope
They got three babies to feed and he can’t find work
How can he get a job when he’s vying with someone lily white
Well, that ain’t right
Pulling the feathers off helpless doves
But if that dove be black and carries in his beak not a branch but half a pound of pure virgin white heroin
Suddenly  the dove flies once more
And that’s why more African Americans are forced to deal dope or become a whore
Because welcome to America African

So here’s how to eliminate racism and the rowdy ones who shoot and mean to kill
Get every white man in America hooked on heroin and suddenly he becomes subservient to his master
Not the dope
But the African American he beseeches to sell him some stuff
The black man says “no” just to make whitey’s life tough
That’s why a white junkie cannot hate a black man because of his religion or race
And believe me that junkie is going to be humble and treat every black dope dealer with  grace
Face to face
And that’s how to rid America of racism and it’s rhetoric
Because white men will tongue kiss a black dealer if that white man is dreadfully dope sick
