"White Power"

[Intro]
Greenspan runs this country
He's  a Jew
White  trash
White power
White trash
White  power
White  power, white power
White power, white power
White  power, white power
White power, white power
White power


[Verse 1: Ras Kass]
White power is creatin' hate where at first there was none
From  Chinese gun powder, the invention of the gun
From ancient Egypt, still, civilization
Then used miseducation to rewrite creation
De-Africanize the Sphinx and re-white his face and
Displace the race and be quite complacent
We livin' in a real District 9
Master race convince other people to de-humanize
White power is against world peace
It'd rather cut the world in pieces
Let every European nation make colonies after natives defeated
Monopolize every natural resource and bleed it
White power is not freedom, white power is the semen
That implies dark-skinned people inferior to light people
The same demon that conquered and raped other cultures
Got the children of the rapists thinkin' they're better than they brothers
So all around the world from America to the Outback
White power prefers we be without black
I got nothin' but love for my Latinos
But Puerto Rico, why deny your heritage is negro?
White power is Spain conquerin' Asians
Renamed Filipinos, teach 'em to mistreat the indigenous
They called Negritos (n*gga)
But they really the same people, if you darker, you less equal
So you got lighter-skinned Indians treated better than the darker
Same thing Brazil, Mexico, Jakarta
Black Cubans, or so-called, "Just Cuban"
When genetically you the same race and we all just human
White power is foolin' you and idolizes itself
Makes you a second class citizen while it takes your wealth
White power is self-hate and Stockholm syndrome
So as I knock on your dome, you are not home

[Chorus: Immortal Technique]
Perception is the power that racial hatred devours
Cowards rewrote the history that is ours
Conquest is the sweet smell of a poisonous flower
The slave master is the savage in the final hour
Perception is what white power relies on
Racial division, the system to build lies on
There is only one human race that exists
I reclaim the past when I raise my fist

[Verse 2: Ras Kass]
White power is forty-one million blacks tryna escape the ghetto
Crabs in a barrel that push Maybach pedals
Youngsters blast metal for iced-out bezels
13-year-old girls in 6-inch stilettos
Name every exotic car brand to upscale apparel
But barely read and write on a fifth-grade level
Blame they condition on some mythological devil
With red skin, two horns, and a pitchfork
Two hundred years, we bottom on the food chain
Think white power did it on accident? You's a new slave
White power prefers the middle class better runnin' the economy
Pay lower wages to the women than minorities
Create COINTELPRO, Jim Crow
Send police dogs on children 'cause we march for equality
It's the War on Crime, the War on Terror
White supremacists who refuse to look in the mirror
White power instigates black power and brown pride
Locks 'em in prison and make sure that they collide
Says the inner city ignorant, but they the ones who taught us
Says go back to Africa when they the ones who brought us
White power wants more walls and more border patrol
But white power stole the southwest from Mexico
Hate immigrants, but they've all immigrated from Europe
Neo-Nazis claimin' they blood the purest
A false racial superiority, false sense of purity
'Cause all mankind came from little African pygmies
So every genetic possibility is in me
Blue eyes, blonde hair, Aryan, Asian
Syrian, Armenian, but in the end
White power taught the world to despise the black man
But still want his b*tch with full lips, round ass
And a nice tan, nice plan
See, white power is conflicted, it hates who it loves
It imitates who it denigrates to escape who it was
Took a African religion in plain sight, man
By the 1500's, Jesus Christ became a white man
And when it suits its goal, have you on the front line fightin'
White power is the emcee who keeps switchin' his hype man
Sri Lanka versus India, Tutsi versus Hutu
Palestinian versus Jew, n*gga, you, too

[Chorus: Immortal Technique]
Perception is the power that racial hatred devours
Cowards rewrote the history that is ours
Conquest is the sweet smell of a poisonous flower
The slave master is the savage in the final hour
Perception, that's what white power relies on
War's the foundation capitalism lies on
The battlefield the American soldier dies on
From Basra, Kandahar, Mogadishu to Saigon

[Interlude]
Why do we hate?
We hate because we're taught to hate
We hate because we're ignorant
We're the product of ignorant people who had been taught an ignorant thing which is that there are four or five different races
There are not four or five different races, there's only one race on the face of the Earth and we're all members of that race, the human race
But we have separated people into races, so that some of us, can see ourselves as superior to the others
We thought it would work, I guess, but it hasn't and has been bad for everyone
