Blacks R Fools Lyrics

[Foreword]
"A nation without education will not know its worth.
What I’m about to say is going to determine whether you know your worth
(and if you don't know) this is not book education, but it's your present!"

[Verse 1]
Ten years in the game I know white bands that only seen
Two years of fame but they set for life
Look at the Parlotones and KFC
I ain’t knocking them it’s really just what I see
Zola was the biggest star that we’ve ever seen
But what’s sad was it was only seen by Cell C
While we work hard just to sell a CD
They make millions of a couple of mp3’s
And break bread for their own race, own creed
I wish black executives could take the lead
But they put us down like we embarrass them
And give us deals that equate to embarrassment
And when we broke they blame it on money management
I must say black people are stagnant
BEE billions we brag with it, while black schools are less than average
Then what’s up with that?

[Chorus]
Coz we blackz are foolz they just want to fresh
And they want to be cool
Give them a little money and they think they rule
But I hope we, but I hope we’re, but I hope we’re,
But I hope we better than that
We better than that x2
We better than that that that that that

[Verse 2]
Now in the struggle we used to burn traitors
I guess that’s how they could to separate us.
Nowadays its money and political favors,
Politicians wanna be Celebs and famous.
Celebs want to be politicians, buy faces
I guess our society has gone pretentious
And when you tell the truth they say you have envious
I’m going to be blatted coz now this is strenuous
Media undermine us
They even offend us
Radio don’t play us
They don’t even recommend us
Journalists with scandals to misrepresent us
Meanwhile they building companies of the oppressors
For minimum wages they make us look lesser
So who should the kids look up to? America
Of course, our heroes are down played by editors
So why blame white people when we can credit us
For our own lack of progression that we bring to us
And we think we are progressing but we are delusional

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
We show off the BMW’s, and VWs but doesn’t that trouble that they don’t consider you
In their marketing strategy that’s my view
But they know that you have the fashion IQ
Chances they don’t even like you
But they know you going to make their brand cool
Coz we so materialistic we’re such fools
They don’t give a buck to the same hoods
Spending money on extravagant foreign goods
Gucci, Versace, Louis
We advertise them so much you think we get Loeries
And supporting our own is such a duty
That’s why we don’t own nothin,
‘cause we think of ourselves as nothing
Black people always be job hunting,
Is BEE the only way to be something? But

[Chorus]
