Can't Be White

about

This song... is a reflection of every news article I read, every news clip I see, and every conversation I have back home with people. I have lost many friendships over the fact that I just dont live in the country any more and I wouldnt understand.

because Im not gay, non white, or transgendered...

It really hurts because all these types of people were long term friends and family that grew up together... and I lose them due to temporary social media trends.

lyrics

You gotta be gay,
You gotta be non white
You gotta be a woman, or get your nuts sliced
You can't be plain
You can't just act nice
If you dont hate somethin
The world don't seem right


1. Cant turn on the tv without being angered by a stranger
2. Saying due to graphic nature, our country is in danger
3. Im tired of hating people that the media says to hate
4. I wish that I could meet them first before making a mistake
5. Nothing changes different phases that amazes no one
6. Give me same but different day i think ill stay at the bottom
7. Caution, people's feeling are ahead so tread light
8. Arguing is pointless like impregnating a fleshlight
9. Just right, financially that other's views are pointless
10. But for some odd reason, they think they have choices.
11. Voiceless, is the majority of the vote
12. If you know there is no hope, you run the risk of rocking the boat
13. And no one likes that, because no one fights back.
14. Silent in a riot but intice behind an ipad
15. I'm mad but obviously not as mad as you.
16. And this is how I adopted a mellow attitude.

You gotta be gay,
You gotta be non white
You gotta be a woman, or get your nuts sliced
You can't be plain
You can't just act nice
If you dont hate somethin
The world don't seem right


1. The second that you try to empathize
2. Is the time that you become a target in they eyes... We will realize
3. I understand your frustration, that is why
4. I separate mysef from hate who made it fate ungrateful strange arrangement
5. When those who aint successful start selling their advice
6. The world seems to say its nice and not hesitate to raise the price.
7. I ask myself daily if this idiot is genuinely serious
8. Or is it really really this?
9. I feel like its a trick, did I really fight in two wars?
10. I refuse to feud with fools and give them fuel to pull me down more
11. I wish my fist would clinch more but I extend to the poor
12. How else would i see what God is using me for?
13. So many snakes in sheeps form deformed and reborn
14. Pay attention to mistakes of others is how im informed
15. Im so happy to be breathing as im reaching for the stars
16. How did I make it this far, when ppl tell you what you are?

You gotta be gay,
You gotta be non white
You gotta be a woman, or get your nuts sliced
You can't be plain
You can't just act nice
If you dont hate somethin
The world don't seem right


1. Breaking stereotypes, since I was 10
2. I never had exclusively 1 kind of friend
3. Some kind of trend to bend the rules against they will
4. Then you get hate from every race oh yes you will
5. Lets try an exercise, that'll open your eyes
6. Compliment 5 people in 5 tries, smile, and say bye
7. You can be whatever you want, that is wonderful and great
8. But can you help a total stranger have a better day?
