The 4th is a Lie

They say today is a holiday
They call it the Fourth of July
But as the U.S. celebrates it's independence
I refuse to buy in to the lie

How can you call this the "land of the free"
And proclaim it "the home of the brave"
All the while being hypocritical
By making the African your slave

You talk about freedom and liberty
And God-given unalienable rights
But in order to claim what the Creator had given
My people had to march, boycott, and fight

I once pledged allegiance to the American flag
And to the republic for which it stands
But no longer do I salute the red, white and blue
Because my Ancestors' blood are on American hands

I no longer join in "The Star Spangled Banner"
I'd rather "Lift Every Voice And Sing"
And the only monument I visit when in DC
Is that of Dr. Martin Luther, The King

Yes, it's true that I was born in this land
But the U.S. will never be my home
'Cause my heart and my soul are fully African
The Motherland…

Our Magna Carta

Let me set the record straight
I feel a need to remind you
That it's no longer 1607
And damn sure ain't 1492
We are no longer your slaves
This ain't the Antebellum South
So be careful how you talk to us
And the words coming from your mouth
How could this be the land of the free
And the home of the brave?
When you can't admit you wouldn't have shit
If it were not for the slaves
And now 400 years later
You still try keeping us down
Take that shit to Deep Creek, Chesapeake
You got me fucked up! This is P-town!
White supremacy doesn't live here
Jim got evicted a long time ago
Now we can freely teach our sons
To allow their locs and beards to grow
And we can teach our daughters
That they're the mothers of all creation
And life up our people, from sea to sea
In a Moorish-America civilization

Calling Me Nigger

What do you really get
Out of calling me a Nigger?
Are you expressing anger
Because nature made mine bigger?
You called me out of my name
Just to gain a violent reaction
But I refuse to let hate win
And give you that satisfaction
And the you called me Faggot
Tried insulting me another way
But I held my peace and let God work
So no victory for evil today
The ignorance you showed is sad
And pitiful for any human being
And instead of disrespecting me
You should be bowed before your king
If you think that I'm a Nigger
I have some real bad news for you
Your King David, your Solomon, your Moses, your Aaron
And even your Jesus were Niggers, too
So keep shooting with your words
And cutting with your eyes
Because the next time you call me Nigger
You wont live to see the Sun rise
