Track Name: Misrepresented Still
"In 1492 you came upon these shores.
Seven hundred years, educated by the moors;
17th Century-- genocide and the gun
Middle Passage blessed to market the Africans.

In the so-called ""Land of God""
My kind were treated hard.
From back then until now
I see, and you agree--
We have been a misrepresented people.

From back then until now
Just see my family tree;
We have been a misrepresented people.
We have been a misrepresented people." - Stevie Wonder



I can’t believe that you’d expect me
To celebrate the freedoms of those who oppress me
My people’s plight was provided by the misguided might of tyrants
Relying on blinding eyes with the pride in states united
They labeled us three fifths, with no backbone or third eye to see with
And some they left with no p to pee with
In 1776 shit was senseless
Chains and whips on slave ships split wigs relentless
Engulfed in their own piss were my men and women defenseless
Dependents forced to amend our whole inner existence
Detracted, from Kings and Queens to captives traveled this Middle Passage
To our cultural casket across the Atlantic
Where the Constitution conned us church bombed us
Then they tell us that the rockets red glare was for ALL of us
But the Emancipation Procrastination didn’t take its place until 1+88 years later
Miseducation of the Holy by haters, in this land of “Divine Right”
They devastated and decimated men
Then legislated this hated date like I’m supposed to take it
But back in them days when they broke bread we had to bake it

When they pincnic they’ed put us in nooses
And hang us from trees surrounded by the local families
Jamboree, inbreed and sip beers in the breeze
While cops and politicians plot to bring a race to its knees on July
One July 1 + 3
I won’t celebrate it until all is R.I.G.H.T
One July 1 + 3
I won’t celebrate it until all is R.I.G.H.T


Chorus:
"From back then until now I see
my family tree;
We have been a misrepresented people.
From back then until now just see
and you'll agree;
We have been a misrepresented people.
We have been a misrepresented people."


You rape pillage and plundered taking villages under and your
willing to wonder why I bring the thunder and rain to your
July 4th parade, extinguishing your fireworks and flames
Hanief’s the name meaning lies I can’t fade
because when hate became man made,
Blacks became damn slaves,
My Queens became handmaids,
and Jews became lampshades
So, I’ll show my pride by spending my time
Spittin fire at the flag on the 4th of July!

Chorus:
"From back then until now I see
my family tree;
We have been a misrepresented people.
From back then until now just see
and you'll agree;
We have been a misrepresented people.
We have been a misrepresented people."
