Uncle New Tom

by 1st Poet

Why don't you look nice today
You even got an office this size no way?
You're over all these black folks
I'm impressed at where you're at 
A black person with a position so high
I heard you have a high turnover rate
Some people say you treat them like a slave
They say the white man don't even need to leave his desk
Because they've trained you to act like them
To oppress your people by any means necessary
Some say you don't even take a day off
In fear of another uncle new tom taking your job
We understand you're intelletual and all that
But you better remember all the ones you step on going up
May be the only ones to help you when you get knocked down
So why you're putting on all your charm Uncle New Tom
Think about the harm to your own people you've done
