Uncle Tommy vs. King D

 So now you're conscious and trying to kick knowledge
See that red octagon over there? Take heed and stop it
Why should I listen to someone who hasn't even graduated college?
Don't tell me that you truly believe that your some kind of prophet
We're Americans, so why do you keep calling us Africans and shit?
We haven't been African since we got off of the Good Jesus slave ship
Why do you care so much anyway? You got a good job and you're a war vet
You need to stop writing these poems that are causing folks to get upset
We are all one group of people known as the human race
Stop criticizing America because it's a great and beautiful place
Yeah I know there are things in her history that still continue today
But do you really need to throw it up in her face? Come on, capitulate

Uncle Tommy, have you lost your rabbit ass mind?
Coming at me trying to rhyme like you're Busta Rhymes
You're damn right about me trying to kick knowledge
The school of hard knocks has given more than college
Nah, I'm not a prophet. Just a brotha trying to stop the bullshit
Tired of the injustice and don't want a repeat of the Jena 6
I call us Africans because that's what we are, you dumb ass
Brain dump all that propaganda they taught in HIStory class
We're not Americans until we're all treated as equal citizens
If you think we're treated equal then you're a very naive man
You think just cause I got a good job and a vet that I'd forget
About the rest of our people drinking water that makes them sick
If you don't know what I'm referring to then take a trip to Flint
People keep saying that the human race is the only race
The Justice system seems to present to me a different case
Look Uncle Tom, just get the hell out of my damn face
I'm a warrior so don't ever come telling me to capitulate
