A Plague in the Community

There is a plague in my community - self hate we call it
A dis-ease of media color programming
Jimmy killed Bobby for walking on Mr. Brown's street
Bobby's brother killed Jimmy for killing Bobby
Mr. Brown's K-9s killed 160,000 in California alone
and the numbers are still rising!
I said: THERE IS A PLAGUE IN MY COMMUNITY!!!
Sistah Susie didn't like here hair
So she bought some chemicals and dog fur
To make her hair look like Mr. Brown's daughter's hair
Sistah Susie didn't like her eye color
So she bought some plastic eyes from Mr. Brown's wife's store
To make her eyes appear the color of Mrs. Brown's eyes
Sistah Susie didn't like her skin color,
breasts, stomach, lips, nails, nose, ass, language, culture, attitude
So she bought & changed
bought & changed
bought & changed, until...
Sistah Susie didn't like me no mo
She said: You talk with double negatives - ebonics
What she talkin bout!! I ain't got no negatives - ebonics - whatever!
Damn plague! I ain't hardly got a Sistah no mo
Doctor say them chemicals were "kau-ze-genic" or sumthin
The col-e-jins breasts leaked he say
Damn plague!!
