This is not the dream he had….

THIS
is not
the dream
he had…..

Just becuz this country has a black male president
Don’t mean that homes are getting more black residents
Don’t mean that black males escape life sentences
Don’t mean the war in Libya is over, he started it
Lupe set the tone when he got a lil sensitive
gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
He’s more of a poison , an illusion of medicine
Cuz the evidence that we settlin WIT
is the evidence of apathetic sentiment

We fall easy to the ‘yes we can’ rhetoric
Won’t chu please —WAKE UP— to this toxic etiquette
These recent racist incidents prove that racism is still evident
We live in a bubble with no troubling messages
The color of your skin is the one thing that separates shit
the difference between you and I is the consciousness changing it
You got thoughts of a soldier , yet act like a training smith
You wanna stop all wars, but the first battle is right within

This is not the dream he had.

If you worry bout what you leave behind, you’ll never move
You’ll never kno the feeling of being meant to prove
To the world—
how much power—
you have—
to remove—
These ppl outa power who plan to kill you

Kweli said it best
lift off to a higher truth
But the appearance of the truth is good enough—-we don’t want the proof
When u ask me what black is
I tell u that black is true
Cuz the mind has been enslaved to believe that black ain’t you

This is not the dream he had.

I wanchu to tell me what the fuck is wrong wit this world
I wanchu u tell me what the fuck is wrong wit this girl
Wearin 5 dolla jewels
wit some 5 minute dudes
Making 5 minute sex tapes that seem to make the news
I wana blow this shit up but someone keeps cuttin the fuse
Ready for the TV but for class we press the snooze

This is not the dream he had.

What the fuck is the priority of our education system
They wanna brainwash our kids and send em to the prison
They tryna control my destiny for their sake, but Yo who is em??
these ppl up in office wanna hide what’s true within us
the cops jus waanna shoot first cuz a random guy jus dissed them
Like yo what’s wrong with this one?
They don’t let us share the wisdom
A million years old, fighting back to change the system
Hotep to that, it seems our people found a mission
We ready to collect all the tools that we can get, son

But I forgot to mention
how they try to keep us separate
United states schools exile blacks based on merit
Tryna suppress a knowledge that originates in kemet
Stealing the legacy of great MCs
denying those who built the pyramids are african descendant.

if you think white people brought you everything then let me ask you
Who were the first people to teach their children in the classroom
Who were the first to speak with divine attitude
Who wrote the ancient teachings with ethiopian gratitude
At 29 degrees
58 minutes
34 seconds north latitude

This……..
This is the dream he had.

Conceal the recollection of the wisdom from the elders
and youll understand why you shoulda shot the sheriff
Fuck the egos of the sheeple breaking under
The shocks of a man about to release the thunder
The walls of her womb gave me strength as a man
mama boy in the making,
mama africas waiting
Our awareness is changing,
but we are not wasting
Time—-
the beat of my drum is anti-aging

forget a camera, we don’t need a reenactment
Record with the soul, tell a story for the masses
The knowledge of tehuti
The balance of ma’at
The spirit of a people that we seem to have forgot
The water of the nile always swims through my veins
I live with no denial that I am African everyday.
