Track Name: Anomaly Detected
Anomaly detected,
y’all better run ‘fore you get arrested
for driving while black
cuz the cops cut no slack
even the brothas in blue
still be actin’ all whack.

I call you brothas and sistas,
Don’t like the word ‘nigga’
Cuz I’ve got some privilege
That you’ll never know.
I get caught selling blow?
That’s a slap on the wrist
For me but for y’all, you never know.
You might get that pig
Who’s out for a fight.
He might beat you senseless,
you might meet a bullet in flight.
He thinks it’s his right.
Hope you don’t get choked out
By those fat cub scouts
Just forget about
Ever having a doubt –
An anomaly was detected and see?
You are that anomaly.
You are somewhat darker than me.
In some peoples’ minds that means you
Should be swinging from a tree.
It’s a real travesty.
I’m writing this rhyme from my ivory tower,
Should I go take a shower?
I’ve got all the power
In the world I could need.
Sometimes I struggle with greed.
I figure being generous is like planting a seed.
You just never know if it’ll grow to be a flower or turn out to be a weed.
But plant that shit anyway, go make that lay-up
If it’s a weed, maybe you’ll get smoked up.
Just make sure you keep an eye out
My complexion keeps me safe
But yours’ll get you popped,
Of that I have no doubt.
Doesn’t matter if you’re devout,
They will judge you by your color before they even get a read-out.

My brothers and sisters of the human race
Let us take this chance to look past the face,
Past the gender and the color of skin.
Let’s build a better world that’s fit for living in.
How do we begin?
Look, I’m not a minority that can be seen by my skin,
But I’ve got the authority to call you my kin.
If you’re waiting around for someone who’s saving your soul,
Wait hopeless no longer, it’s time to seize control.
