Racists Lyrics

Anti-Flag – Racists Lyrics

from album: American Fall (2017)
[Intro]
We say "No, not in our name."

[Verse 1]
It's in the things that you say and you don't say
You don't know it 'cause you're such a fuckin' cliche
The way you define them and us
Those you fear and those you trust
You know a black guy and he's very articulate
You know a Mexican and she's honest and diligent
You don't see color, but some people need discipline
A thug is a thug, some people need to learn a lesson

[Pre-Chorus]
Your justifications (one dead giveaway)
Your qualifications (one dead giveaway)
You'd never endorse the Jim Crow days
But the malice in your voice is a god damn giveaway

[Chorus]
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
A bigot with a checklist
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
You don't get a pass when you're talkin' your shit
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
A bigot with a checklist
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
You don't get a pass, get a pass for your ignorance

[Verse 2]
Black lives matter and you don't know why
And reverse racism isn't a real thing
No you weren't alive in the time of slavery
But that's no excuse to ignore its legacy
Not afraid of refugees
But don't want a mosque built on your street
Offended by the claim of bigotry
More than the racism in your face

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Your justifications (one dead giveaway)
Your qualifications (one dead giveaway)
You'd never endorse the Bull Connor days
But the malice in your voice is a god damn giveaway

[Chorus]
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
A bigot with a checklist
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
You don't get a pass when you're talkin' your shit
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
A bigot with a checklist
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
You don't get a pass, get a pass for your ignorance

[Bridge]
You fly the flag of the Confederacy
You say to celebrate your history
The South was fighting to save slavery
To preserve and protect white supremacy

[Chorus]
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
A bigot with a checklist
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
You don't get a pass when you're talkin' your shit
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
A bigot with a checklist
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
You don't get a pass, get a pass for your ignorance

[Outro]
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
Just 'cause you don't know you're sexist
Just 'cause you don't know you're fascist
You don't get a pass for your ignorance
Just 'cause you don't know you're racist
Just 'cause you don't know you're sexist
Just 'cause you don't know you're fascist
You don't get a pass, get a pass for your ignorance
