Black Actor

By
Just cause my skin is brown
Don’t make me some baby’s mama
Just cause my skin is brown
Don’t mean I’m a lotta drama

Just cause my skin is dark
Don’t mean I’m in a gang
Just cause my skin is dark
Don’t mean I talk street slang

Just cause my skin is brown
Don’t mean I like hip hop
Just cause my skin is brown
Doesn’t mean I can’t rock

Just cause my skin is black
Doesn’t mean I’ll steal your bag
Just cause my skin is black
Doesn’t mean I like to tag

Just cause my skin is dark
Don’t mean I’m ghetto
Ghetto’s a noun
Incase you didn’t know

Just cause my skin is dark
Doesn’t mean I like Phat Farm
Just cause my skin is dark
Doesn’t mean I’ll do you harm

Just cause my skin is brown
Don’t mean I like to say “yo”
Just cause my skin is brown
Doesn’t mean I can flow

Just cause my skin is dark and I got hoops in my ears
That don’t make me easy
Just cause my skin is dark and I got hoops in my ears
Don’t make me your breezy

Just cause my skin is black and I’m young
Doesn’t mean I got a gun
Just cause my skin is black and I’m young
Don’t mean I’ll take your money and run

Just cause my skin is brown
Don’t mean I do drugs
Just cause my skin is brown
Don’t make me some thug

Just cause my skin is black
Don’t tell me stuff is whack
Just cause my skin is black
Don’t mean I’ll take that

Just cause my skin is dark
Doesn’t mean I like to fight
Just cause my skin is dark
Doesn’t mean I’m not polite

So don’t tell me to stay black
So don’t tell me who I am
Just cause I’ve got black skin
Black’s just a color
And what matters is what’s within
