Kid: Hey dad I got in a fight with this white kid today at school.

P: Son didn't I tell you I don't want you fighting?

Kid: But he called me a nigger.


[Master P]

I'm just a black man trapped in this white world (x5)

And this goes to every woman man boy and girl


Its a shame when you can't send your kids to decent schools

We live in the world for the laws and no rules

Gang bangers crease sides and chalk lines

Correctional facilities full of juveniles doin' petty crimes

In this ghetto, got me crazy

Sometimes I wish, mama wouldn'ta made me

But its a shame when you gotta raise a baby

And the color of my skin might taint me


I'm just a black man trapped in this white world (x3)

And this goes to every woman, man, boy, and girl


And all the money can't change the color of your skin

Why so many blacks and Mexicans in the pen?

It is cause we VIOLENT?

But why Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and started smilin'?

So many people have dreams

But why society eliminated Martin Luther King?

And they tell us to be proud to be black

And at the same time Uncle John shoot us in the back

Independence, its a free country

No jobs, most blacks turn to street money

A bunch of ghetto full of drugs and alcohol

Where found history books about white laws

And tell me Hilfiger discriminate

And sell us clothes

But we can't blame him cause

We don't support the black stores

And only God can judge

??? and what's

White or black and red and blue equals gang banging


I'm just a black man trapped in this white world (x3)

And this goes to every woman, man, boy, and girl


(I'm just a black man

Trapped in this white world)

I'm colorblind, so Lord won't you feel my pain

(Hold on, hold on

Trapped in this white world)

I'm colorblind, so Lord won't you feel my pain


[Silkk]

P pray for your little brother

[Master P]

Silkk, keep your head up

[Silkk]

I'm tryin' but sometime I get fed up (Damn)

What about all of the people that died in the past?

Peers I can't get back with too many found guilty

And I know they didn't do it

But still they can't get back

I see the copper be tryin' to nail me

Police constantly trailin' me

Cause I'm young, rich, and black

I'm always under survelience

Dash me out the car

And want to ask me who the car fuck

Thay allowed to carry guns

Can't never be convicted

Who that law fuck?

I'm guilty till proven innocent

Still we all equals, how do you figure?

Cop told me

"you weren't speeding but I'm gonna give you a ticket cause you a

nigger"

I seen the hardest of my homies

Break down in tears

A white judge looked them in the eyes

And gave them 35 years

Now its a everyday struggle

I hustle just to live

To raise your kids

When they got them teachin' them

Their parents better than them

They got me thinkin'

The color of my skin

Is a sin

I'm a black man in a white man's world

Where its set up for me not to win

Lookit, ain't that about a bitch

They look at us like we ain't shit

But lookit, I ain't racist, but face it, it exists

I'm a black man (Unghhhhh)


[Master P]

I'm just a black man trapped in this white world (x3)

And this goes to every woman, man, boy, and girl


Outro:

Check this out (check this out)

Underneath (underneath)

Ain't no black or white (there ain't no black or white)

We all equal (we all equal)

We all equal (we all equal)

We all (remember that)

Got the same opportunity

Whether we want to be judges, doctors, or lawyers

Ain't a black or white thing

Pick the best man for the job

And there shouldn't be no hatin'

Where you live, if you can afford to buy a house

Should be able to live wherever you want

The same hospitality they give to athletes

And movie stars

Should give that same hospitality and companionship

To your neighbors

You heard me?

y'all know it ain't a black and white thing with me

I just make music

For the reality

Only the real could feel this, huh

Only the real could feel this
