Lauryn Hill: Black Rage

Lauryn Hill’s “Black Rage”

Black rage is founded on two-thirds a person,
Rapings and beatings and suffering that worsens,
Black human packages tied up in strings,
Black rage can come from all these kinds of things.
Black rage is founded on blatant denial
Squeezed economics, subsistence survival,
Deafening silence and social control.
Black rage is founded on wounds in the soul!

When the dogs bites
When the beatings
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember all these kinds of things and then I don’t fear so bad!
