Not trying to be white
Each time we have a conversation concerning
Here you go
Why you always trying to be white
What exactly does that mean
I speak as I wish to be spoken to
Mother fucker , Fuck you, Bitch
Nigger, Hoe, baby's mom,
All words/terms thrown around like they're terms of endearment
but none I'd use in my daily conversations
This doesn't mean I'm trying to make my escape
Owning certain attire
doesn't make me a sell out
I like the way I look and feel in suits
Not going to apologize for embracing a classic look
I don't collect sneakers or hats
These things shouldn't be confuse with my ethnicity
Being true to myself only REQUIRES me
to act as I see fit
You continue to confuse my personal growth with the color of my skin
I worry about my credit rating...
One of my silly ideas may take off ...
I could become a successful entrepreneur
I could be more like you...
Never taking a stand on anything...
Still living at home...
License suspended ...
Closet containing the latest urban wear but...
no bank account that reflects any upward mobility
No credit cards...
Just living from check to check...
Of course you see wrong nothing with this situation...
You tend to embrace the things listed above as part of your culture
As you say," life's hard and I'm keeping it real"
Is it a matter of me trying to be white
Just trying to live right?
