Fear Of A Black Planet Lyrics - Public Enemy

Review The Song (0)



Man don’t ya
Worry 'bout a thing
'Bout your daughter
No she’s not my type
(But suppose she said she loved me)
Are you afraid of the mix of Black and White
Livin' in a land where
The law say the mixing of race
Makes the blood impure
She's a woman I'm a man
Look at your face
I see ya can't stand it

Man you need to calm down, don't get mad
I don't need your sister
(But suppose she said she loved me)
Would you still love her
Or would you dismiss her
What is pure? Who is pure?
Is it European, I ain’t sure
If the whole world was to come
Thru peace and love
Then what would we be made of?

(Excuse us for the news
You might not be amused
But did you know white comes from Black
No need to be confused
Excuse us for the news
I question those accused
Why is this fear of Black from White
Influence who you choose?)

Man, I don't want your wife
Stop screamin' it's not the end of your life
(But suppose she said she loved me)
What's wrong with some color in your family tree
I don't know
Hey, I'm just a rhyme sayer
Skin protected against the ozone layer
Breakdown 2001
Might be best to be Black
Or just Brown, countdown

I've been wonderin' why
People livin' in fear
Of my shade
(Or my hi top fade)
I'm not the one that's runnin'
But they got me on the run
Treat me like I have a gun
All I got is genes and chromosomes
Consider me Black to the bone
All I want is peace and love
On this planet
(Ain't that how God planned it?)

(Excuse us for the news
You might not be amused
But did you know White comes from Black
No need to be confused
Excuse us for the news
I question those accused
Why is this fear of Black from White
Influence who you choose?)
