"You go bustin your fist against a stone wall, you're not usin your brain. That's what the white man wants you to do. Look at you! What makes you ashamed of bein black?"
(Nuttin but love for you my sister) Might even know how hard it is (no doubt) Bein a woman, a black woman at that? (no doubt) Shit - in this white man's world Sometimes we overlook the fact that we be ridin hard on our sisters we don't be knowin the pain we be causin (in this white man's world) In this white man's world.. I ain't sayin I'm innocent in all this I'm just sayin (in this white man's world) This song is for y'all For all those times that I messed up or we messed up
[2Pac] Dear sister, got me twisted up in prison I miss ya Cryin lookin at my niece's and my newphew's picture They say don't let this cruel world get ya, kinda suspicious Swearin one day you might leave me, for somebody that's richer Twist the cap off the bottle, I take a sip and see tomorrow Gotta make if I have to beg or borrow Readin love letters; late night, locked down and quiet If brothers don't recieve they mail best believe we riot Eatin Jack-Mack, starin at walls of silence inside this cage where they captured all my rage and violence In time I learned a few lessons, never fall for riches Aplogizies to my TRUE sisters; far from bitches Help me raise my black nation reperations are due, it's true Caught up in this world I took advantage of you So tell the babies how I love them, precious boys and girls Born black in this white man's world - and all I heard was
[Chorus - sung] Who, knows what tomorrow brings In this world, where everyone's blind And where to go, no matter how far I'll find To let you know, that you're not alone
[2Pac over Chorus] Only thing they ever did wrong (YES, YES) was bein born black, in this white man's world (NO DOUBT) (All my ghetto motherfuckers be proud to be black and be PROUD) All my little black seeds, born black in this white man's world (to have this shit like this, cause ain't NOBODY got it like this) (All these motherfuckers wanna be like us, they all wanna be like us) (To be the have-nots, all hail) (God bless the child that can hold his own, no motherfuckin doubt)
[2Pac] Bein born with less I must confess only adds on to the stress Two gunshots to my homie's head, dyed in his vest Shot him to death and left him bleedin for his family to see I pass his casket gently askin, is there heaven for G's? My homeboy's doin life, his baby momma be stressin Sheddin tears when her son, finally ask that questions Where my daddy at? Mama why we live so poor? Why you cryin? Heard you late night through my bedroom door Now do you love me mama? Whitey keep on callin me nigga? Get my weight up with my hate and pay 'em back when I'm bigger And still thuggin in this jail cell, missin my block Hearin brothers screamin all night, wishin they'd stop Proud to be black but why we act like we don't love ourselves Don't look around busta (you sucka) check yourselves Know what it MEANS to be black, whether a man or girl We still strugglin, in this white man's world
[*megaphone* over Chorus] We must fight, for brother Mumia We must fight, for brother Mutulu And we must fight, for brother (?) We must fight, for brother Geronimo Pratt We must fight.. for (?), Zulu, (?) We must fight, for the government's political prisoners They are locked up falsely by this white man
[2Pac] So tell me why you - changed to choose a new direction, in the blink of an eye My time away just made perfection, did you think I'd die? Not gon' cry, why should I care Like we holdin on to lost love that's no longer there Can you please help me, God bless me please keep my seeds healthy Makin all my enemies bleed while my G's wealthy Hopin they bury me with ammunitions, weed, and shells Just in case they trip in heaven - ain't no G's hell Sister sorry for the pain that I caused your heart I know I'll change if you help me, but don't fall apart Rest in peace to Latasha, Lil' Yummy, and Kato Too much for this cold world to take - ended up bein fatal Every women in America, especially black Bear with me, can't you see, that we under attack I never meant to cause drama, to my sister and mama Hope we make it, to better times, in this white man's world
[Chorus] - 3X
[Dialogue over Chorus] "You're out of touch with reality! There are a few of you in a few smoke filled rooms (?) that the mainstream wound up masses of the people White and black, red yellow, and, and brown Poor and vulnerable are suffering, in this nation."
[2Pac over Chorus] Remember that, in this white man's world, they can't stop us We've been here all this time they ain't took us out They can never take us out No matter what they say, about us bein extinct about us being endangered species, we ain't NEVER gon' leave this We ain't NEVER gon' walk off this planet, unless Y'ALL choose to Use your brain, use your brain It ain't THEM that's killin us it's US that's killin us It ain't THEM that's knockin us off, it's US that's knockin us off I'm tellin you better watch it, or be a victim Be a victim, in this white man's world.. .. born black, in this white man's world, no doubt And it's dedicated to my motherfuckin teachers Mutulu Shakur, Geronimo Pratt, Mumia Abu Jamal Sekou Odinga, all the real O.G.'s, we out
[Minister Farrakhan - Oct. 17, 1995] The seal, and the constitution, reflect the thinking of the founding fathers, that this was, to be a nation by white people, and for white people. Native americans, blacks, and all other non-white people, were to be the burden bearers, for the real citizens of this nation.
