So you're pissed cuz you don't know how to make be decisive, how to make ends? Are you kidding? Everything is someone else's fault? You don't know how t to avoid drugs and stupid decisions? Every white kid ain't privileged and I never had a teacher tell me that Blacks are 3/5 human! That's some bullshit and eventually you stop blaming everyone for your s**t! Black or white, we all have some common sense! Y'all are the s**t, but c'mon! We all got s**t to handle and history is cruel but take a cha

No one is disrespectin g REAL education here; get your head right. Furthermore, some folks have jobs they actually enjoy. If you are really prepared to defend people for force-feedin g you bullshit, you are asleep! Trgz knows what's up; take a lesson. You ain't ready for the revolution.

Real s**t! The cops are really ignorant about the law that they try to enforce! Self education is the way. The black panther party had the right idea on how to deal to deal with these b**tards.The BPP was no just about black liberation, it was about indigenous liberation!

Unfortunatel y , not everyone can dropout and become a (temporarily and mildly) successful hip-hop act. Most people who changed the system were able to master it first. You can't change your community if your own life is a mess.

The word "white" shall continue to be associated with the dominant culture, because that's how it came up. If say, the pale faces never came to this continent and the native Indians perpetuated the atrocities of modern civilization , DP would be saying "red" instead. Get past it.

Flawed? Yes. Ignorant? A little bit. Paranoid? Racist? Excuses? No. This is righteous indignation.

Great song. I love Dead Prez. Enlightened and enlightening . Awesome. A poetic critique of education.

I dunno...I agree with a fair amount of it...particu l a r l y at my school.

...The only foreign languages offered are European ones, the only social science class that deeply involves Africa is "African Geography".. . B o t h Asia and Africa are extremely neglegted in highschools.

I think the song is a little flawed, paranoid, and racist, but I understand what hes trying to say and hes partially right..I'm white and I dropped out..It isn't just a black or white thing, schools do that s**t to a lot of different types of people. To be fair, hes talking about the school he went to, not the one any of us went to.

this is just a song of excuses. i agree that the school system is flawed, but he would have known college is different if he had made it past high school. i mean, i know the public school system is brainwashing , but i made it out to obtain real knowledge.
