Don't Call Me White

Don't call me white (x4)

The connotations wearing my nerves thin

Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?

I understand that language breeds stereotype

But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

Don't call me white (x4)

I wasn't brought here, I was born

Circumsized, categorized, allegiance sworn

Does this mean I have to take such shit

For being fairskinned?  No!

I ain't a part of no conspiracy, I'm just you're average Joe

Don't call me white (x4)

Represents everything I hate

The soap shoved in the mouth to cleanse the mind

The vast majority of sheep

A buttoned collar, starched and bleached

Constricting veins, the blood flow to the brain slows

They're so fuckin' ordinary white

Don't call me white (x4)
