Opinion struck down in the West

Most hip hop Superstars got fast cars with slow reason
If black people were smart they would appreciate Mr. West without ceasing
Teach black people how to twerk and you'll be high-fived
Teach black people how to think and you'll be socially buried alive
Ostracized but why am I surprised?
They didn't choose initial slavery but they chose not to rise
Speaking of the majority and not the minority
Difference of opinion starts with you
Have one too often and they'll ban you from the barbecue
Same ones who taught blacks to read got told on and was forced to bleed
Die for your people but why?
They see a cognitive thinking star and shoot him right out of the sky
All this tension will cause a fellow black man to die
Over his opinion
All up in arms
When Hillary compared y'all to dogs I didn't hear the same alarm.
When Obama called y'all Thugs
Most of y'all shrugged
Didn't even debate or
Y'all will listen to ignorance of Carli B
But ignore the logic of Kanye West
So get back to your reality shows
So you can continue to entertain the thought of being hoes.
I watched a black man be struck down by keeping a Black Nation mentally on its toes.
Yet we wonder why we continue to accept defeat from our foes.
People often get called Crazy by people that are mentally lazy.
Congratulations Mr. West has officially been struck down
Meanwhile we STILL can't think critically we're still mentally enslaved and we are about to drown
I finally understand what the Runaway
Field Negroes went through now.
They got told on and killed before they can get an idea off the ground
What we need is a rebel with a thesis
And to be our own God instead of waiting for white Jesus
We tried that since back in the day and still got a lash as we prayed.
But you can't wrap your mind around why we the New Slaves
