1871, Los Angeles / A mob walked in / Attacked, robbed, assaulted all residents / On all blocks, not one shop not visited / The biggest mass lynching / In American history / And the victims? / They were not black / They were not white / They were like me, with my skin / And they were all tied / By their necks 'til they either snapped or suffocated / All they had worked for ransacked and taken / Meanwhile, all they ever knew growing up was miles and miles and miles and miles away from them / And what about Rock Springs? / The Exclusion Act or internment camps? / And Watsonville and Murphy Ranch? / And all the hurt the white man made us endure? / But nah nah nah
We ain't gonna tell them, nah / Nah, we don't wanna take their bliss away / Nah, We ain’t gonna do that, nah / Nah, we don’t wanna take their bliss away / Yeah, they don’t really know about it / But nah, we don’t wanna take their bliss away / Nah, We ain’t gonna do that, nah / Nah, we ain’t gonna do that
Nah, we don’t wanna take their / B - L - I - S - S / Nah, we ain’t gonna take their / B - L - I - S - S / Nah, we don’t wanna take their / B - L - I - S - S / Nah, we ain’t gonna do that, nah / Nah, we ain’t gonna do that
Over 100,000 people—men, women, children—all of Japanese ancestry removed from their homes in the state of California…
They had us load onto train cars with other Japanese American families, and stationed on both ends of each train car were guards. It’s like we were criminals.
2016, Atlanta / When you talk about race, it’s black or white / Ain’t nobody care what we think / We don’t have a place in the masses’ mind / Still seen as foreigner / Where you from? No, where you really from? / In Asia, tell me where it is? / When the fact is there is a generation born as Americans / But they would never know that / ‘cause we ain’t really ever had a voice, right? / Only choice I was ever given was to be represented by a guy doing Muay Thai / But see, right here is home to me / And I don’t really know no other place / No other way to live / No other language I think in but English / But no I won’t say it to them, no way, nah nah
But we gotta tell them / Even if it takes their bliss away / Yeah, we really gotta do that / Even if it takes their bliss away / Yeah, they don’t really know about it / So even if it takes their bliss away / Yeah, we really gotta do that, yeah / Yeah, we really gotta do that
