A Black Man in the White House


After 200 plus years of struggle
I can’t seem to conceive
Why can’t a black man be in the white house?
Why can’t the President look like me?

What is this country afraid of?
What is the fear buried deep?
Why can’t a black man be in the white house?
Why can’t the Commander in Chief look like me?
Where is the equal opportunity?
This is supposed to be the land of the free
Why can’t a black man be in the white house?
Why can’t our leader (for once) look like me?

White hoodies and sawed off shot guns
Terror plots to kill a man who can see
America needs change we can believe in
Why can’t the power to veto look like me?

We might fry chicken on Sunday
Pork Chops, Chittlins, or butter beans
It certainly doesn’t mean we are inferior
So why can’t the candidate look like me?

The pressure is on to cast a vote
Our ancestors’ blood still speaks
Why can’t a black man be in the white house?
Speak on my brother speak!!

Ice is ice no matter the origin
There’s isn’t colder you see
So why can’t you vote for a black man?
WHY CAN’T THE PRESIDENT OF THESE UNITED STATES HAVE THE SAME SKIN COLOR AS ME?
