And we got this other thing that’s been working for a long time where you don’t have to be racist anymore, it’s called self-hate. It works on itself it’s like real estate of racism. Where, just like that, when someone comes up and says something like “I am a god”, everybody says, “who does he think he is?” I just told you who I thought I was! A god! I just told you, that’s who I think I am. Would it have been better if I called a song that said “I am a nigga”? Or if I had a song that said “I am a gangster”? Or if I had a song that song “I am a pimp”? All those colors and petinas fit better on a person like me right? But to say you are a god? Especially when you got shipped over to the country you’re in and your last name is a slave owners’. How could you say that? How could have that mentality?
