Verse 1

Two races caught in a bitter struggle
Color warfare, racial rebuttal
Discrimination in this land of one nation
Under God black-white separation
Prejudiceum and inequality
Politically and economically
Why must a certain race be more respected
Cause in this system if your different you're not accepted
Go through a neighborhood that's not of your own kind
Get killed by suckas that are blind
To the image that the media built up
If you're black and smoke crack and don't give a f-
But the actual facts you must understand
Many people are abused, not just the black man
These racial chains we gotta break them
To my brothers and my sisters asalamalakum

Chorus

Asalamalakum [x4]

Verse 2

Tension injustice on a war path
Predictions tore up the 90s a racial blood bath
Cause the oppressed ain't going for it no more
The way we going, we're heading for a racial war
And that's my point of view that's what this land is coming to
What are gonna do when people grew up onto hate
The race of another man specifically in this land the brotha man
And when I think about it, it makes me mighty mad
Cause in every race you got your good and bad
Brotha sistas don't we get to short another stick
Racial hate we get more than any others get
Like KRS-One said "why is that"
When this country wasn't built on the spread of blacks
These racial chains we gotta break them
To my brothers and my sisters asalamalakum

Chorus

Asalamalakum [x4]

Verse 3

Stereotypin' racism ?
A color barrier is what provokes this
Flowing up hatred racial animosity
Stereotypin' you know that it gotta be
A few out of many put all in one category
Judgin' by stereotypes, media stories
One race always perceived as dealin'
Abusin' and stealin' a fightin' and killin'
As the TV pumps up this negative image
Showing only the bad things while the good ones a-blemish
The blind one sees this ? is mental
Stereotypin' on a race is criminal
Judge the whole, of what a few do
But the news abuse and misuse the issues
These racial chains we gotta break them
To my brothers and my sisters asalamalakum

Chorus

Asalamalakum [x4]

Verse 4

Years of being chained up, whipped and hanged up
Four centuries of being mentally banged up
Brothas have come to discover and get knowledge of self
And they descendants from Africa
Kings and Queens which ones was a mystery
Hidden from the black mind throughout their history of America
Now were gettin' our dignity back
And slave a brotha man now they ain't having that
Cause peace and equality should be for all men
White or black we all gots children
? ? for thought so let it sink in their head
That were two different colors, but we both bleed red
And if we don't stop the madness this racial supremacy
The so called ? will soon be history
These racial chains we gotta break them
To my brothers and my sisters asalamalakum

Chorus

Asalamalakum [x6]
