Welcome to America.
This country is the best.
In this country,
causes silence
and kneeling
causes weeping.
This country is a beautiful place.
If you don’t mind,
getting beat and bullied
because of your race.
It’s America!
And here we live life the freeway
but don’t get any ideas
you’re still mentally enslaved.
But hey, it’s okay,
because we came a long way.
So just ignore the problems
and enjoy your stay.
Welcome to America!
Over here,
you’re judged
on the color of your skin.
But who cares?
It’s not as bad as it was way back when.
This is America,
land of the free and home of the brave.
But be careful if you’re black,
when you’re pulled over,
you can’t be saved.
Over here, in America,
you have your freedom.
But did Kalief Browder really belong in prison?
Shh …
we’re talking about how freedom has arisen.
So just keep quiet, and ignore the millions who don’t belong in prison.
In this country we honor the people who fight for our freedom.
All. Year. Round.
But once February comes around
We have to honor the African americans who fought and died
For BASIC human rights
I know it’s such a waste of time.
Thank God it’s the shortest month right?
America is the place to be.
If you shoot up a whole school,
we'll get you the help that you need.
and you’ll get off Scot free.
Freedom is what you have indeed.
That’s if you’re white at least.
So if you’re
Or even from the Middle East,
You’re freedom is slightly decreased
Welcome to America.
Please enjoy your chains.
I meant stay.
