Fear of a Black Planet

I’ve been wonderin’ why
People livin’ in fear
Of my shade
(Or my high top fade)
I’m not the one that’s runnin’
But they got me one 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?)

-Public Enemy, “Fear of a Black Planet” (1990)

    • I attended the Trayvon Martin Rally, and that song immediately popped in my head. And yes, Chuck D is brilliant. Thanks for stopping by. BTW…I love what you are doing at Afrofusion Lounge! 🙂
