I agree with most of what both whers and gravey are saying

I was simply pointing out that you do not have to be black to feel or understand racism
Zimbabwe Farmers, Jews & Muslims....I'm not even trying to compare
For I am well aware of the harshness that black people have endured through racism.
I am of the stance of an injustice to humanity is an injustice to us all
I'm white and I have had the exact same situation with an elderly woman & a purse
I even said it in a rhyme I belive on some Killah Priest homage.
I'm simply appalled & amazed by the statements Lord Jamar has made that's all.
The fact that it is 2013 and Hip-Hop & racism are being discussed....
Even merged is what I find sad.
No offense was intended I assure you.
well said whers
We do it for the people.
From donated clothes, to caps and gowns
It's a little shout to my black and brown
Folks that know the game, not in class to clown
Had the funny accent, look who's laughing now
See Samir came here to grind, and he slaved at
Every minimum wage job, but he saved that
Brought his sis here on scholarship to make stacks
Working as a surgeon she bought a whip, and payed cash
No time to whine, we just face facts
Lets fit 6 in the back and lets take that
To the best restaurants, make reservations
Since we out here, since they made reservations
For first Nations and they never made reparations
The Natives probably relate more to immigration
So this for y'all too, and I can't forget the Haitians
Here for an education. Its a celebration.
