“In 1492 you came upon these shores. Seven hundred years, educated by the moors; 17th Century– genocide and the gun Middle Passage blessed to market the Africans. In the so-called “”Land of God”” My kind were treated hard. From back then until now I see, and you agree– We have been a misrepresented people. From back then until now Just see my family tree; We have been a misrepresented people. We have been a misrepresented people. 19th century– slavery destroyed.”

“Soldiers who fought and won, What”s known as “”nigger-boys”” 20th century– with freedom in my hand, We invent ideas Which helped us save a land, But while I prayed to God My moms and pops got whored. From back then until now You”ll see our history; We have been a misrepresented people. From back then until now Just see my family tree; We have been a misrepresented people Yes, we have been a misrepresented people. 1969– Black power’s at the door.”

“1982– Hop-hop was on the floor. 1992– Gangsta crack prevailed. 1999– Our colors filled the jails. It is through the grace of God That we all were not scarred. From back then until now We see no comedy; We have been a misrepresented people. From back then until now Were we still a mystery; We have been a misrepresented people. Yes, we have been a misrepresented people. Though we march across time, A sea of victories, We have been a misrepresented people.”

From back then until now We see our destiny To never be a misrepresented people. Yes, we march across to time to free A melody To never be a misrepresented people. No you must never be a misrepresented people.”
