Fuck I look like.
You must have me fucked up.
You sitting up in here looking at me like
Who is this nigga?
What's he doing here?

I'm damn sure I have all the qualifications
Damn sure I have a hell of a lot more then you.
So again you must have me fucked up.
Like your idea of "advanced" is too advanced and my mind can't match you.

Is it how I talk?
It must be my vernacular.
Like I speak slave, and you speak slave master.
This isn't a plantation it's a workplace.

White people think they run shit because they have money
to come on in suit and tie. $1,000 cologne, brand new phone.
Oh and lets not forget the thesaurus.
You say prejudicial I say fucked up.
You say gargantuan, I say big as shit.

It's still big as shit it don't really matter
I guess AP, stands for asshole pretentiousness
And if you don't know what that means
Pull out the Webster, look for a synonym because you love doing that shit.

Oh and you must also like judging every book by the color of it's author.
How y'all talked all that shit about Maya Angelou, called her inferior just because
her grammar wasn't perfect.
But Shakespeare and Mark Twain can right write a literary masterpiece with nothing but grammatical errors.

And I can't help but to pardon my peoples slang because
real niggas ain't real niggas if they don't got a twang.
I want to apologize for mean mugging from the back of class
Talking bout gerrymandering, and existentialism like a mother fucking boss
It's not your fault you just can't vibe with me

Niggas can't vibe with me either.
Because as soon as I raise my hand for anything other then
a bathroom break
I become a weirdo.
Oh and success. Yeah forget all that shit.

God forbid I excel, coding,
Apparently translates to me being 4 shades lighter.
Because apparently intelligence is a white trait.
People in the back of the class asking
"Why would I use big words? So I can sound like you?"

You know what I sound like?
Like I've read a damn book before.
According to my people I act smart, so I act white.
So I can't be black and be smart because black people are dumb?
Is it because white people told us niggas not to read 100 years ago
And now we got niggas telling other niggas not to read.
What the hell are we afraid of?

My people don't even know they're literally working with our oppressors.
Just passing on the torch, but we can't pass the bar.
Because the bar has been set so low we are crushing under the weight.
And you expect me to cut class, and fail just to perpetuate a stereotype that has been instilled by this bullshit curriculum?
Fuck I look like?

I will never equate stupidity with my beautiful melanin skin
Nor will I ever sacrifice my skin for the white mans stand
And so never ask that I speak speak for anyone but me,
represent anything but what I stand for,
and fight for anything, but what I believe in.

And if anyone ever expects me to do anything but be myself...
