Willie Lynch Didn't Lie

by Carlton L Scott

He figured out how to make us hate ourselves inside
Turn against each other for a few crumbs from the master's table
Just a little taste I can make you think like me forget about your pain
This is a new day he claims he can't remember slavery his ancestors did
That gave him over a 300 hundred year start ahead 
he know we will never catch up to him unless we get reparations
I've taught you to hate yourself kill each other off 
over the old mighty dollar
Sister against sister brother against brother 
oh Willie taught the slave master to program us
Dark against light and light against dark 
as he sat back teaching his niggers to hate self
But he didn't see God's hand at work molding and shaping us 
to do greater things through his son Jesus
Tearing down the strong holds of life set up against us 
One thing oh Willie could never understand all that he did
We still kept making progress from a higher power within
He started to admire our courage from all the suffering
Treated less than a human being just like mother Maya Angelou said 
still we rise and rise and rise without fear
Willie Didn't Lie
He really was dumb because he did not understand the source of power 
and where it came from
After all every living human came from a beautiful black women
