Listening Between the Lines: 2013 Lyrics that Sparked National Conversations
“My momma was raised in an era when
Clean water was only served to the fairer skin
Doing clothes you would have thought I had help
But they wasn't satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself.
You see it’s broke n---a racism
That's that "Don't touch anything in the store"
And there's rich n---a racism
That's that "Come here, please buy more"
What you want a Bentley, fur coat and diamond chain?
All you blacks want all the same things”
