The Quick BeatAll the black kids are sitting together in the cafeteria
And you wonder what they're talking about
Something about living in the ghetto
And how their momma works the streets
And you overhear them, something about
That Chinua, he sold out, man
The only black man in a book of whites
This world is full of racism still
And all we can do is sit together and
Stare at the eyes of the white folk
And hope they can see into our mind.
God knows our souls aren't heard.
They are not talking about
how much weed they smoked before school
how they are going to graffiti the walls
how they are flunking every subject because they work 40 hours a week
All those things you see in the movies,
You thought for sure all the black people in the world lived by.
Instead you hear their voices
And it sounds like music,
And you think about the time you lived in the city
And just like the Ibo village,
No one went hungry.
Even after the electricity went out for almost a week
People still brought each other
