Family (Skit) Lyrics

Wu-Tang Clan – Family (Skit) Lyrics

from album: The Saga Continues (2017)
[Interlude: Shahrazad Ali]
They did not tell us that all of that, "being my own person and my being independent", would lead to separation, loneliness, celibacy, and lesbianism
They didn't tell us that if you give up the man, you're gonna take one of these things, it gets worse and would destroy your nation
They made us think it was some kind of glorified position to brag about the fact that I got my own job, my own credit card, my own car, so I don't need no man
I don't even know how we got that mixed up, ain't none of that got anything to do with having being with no man
We have some serious relationship problems, you know, over 60% of our women are single, widowed, separated, or divorced. They don't have a man. They need fathers, they need protection. To raise a child, you need a parental coalition of a man and a woman. We have sons, by not having have a father in the home, they don't know how to respect women. They may bring the welfare system in and tell us in order to feed, and clothe, and house our children, we have to give up our man–we have to put the man out of the house. When the white farmwife goes to the government for subsidy for the farm, they don't tell them to get rid of the farm and they keep that family together. But in the black community they make it a requirement, because they want to keep endorsing into the black community that the black man is no good
