In society 1 tenth of an inch has so many labels,

If we’re colored I’m your brother.

Let’s not start on optional and survey tables,

Where I’m African American or other.

Not your basic or Tom Warner but premium cable,

We get the property or boy.

So many names for a 1 tenth of an inch has us clinically unstable,

The worst of all we’ll always be nigger.
