​Fuck Your Ethnicity

This song is by Kendrick Lamar and appears on the album Section.80 (2011).

Gather 'round
I'm glad everybody came out tonight
As we stand on our neighborhood corner, know that this fire that's burning represents the passion you have, listen
Keisha, Tammy, come up front
I recognize all of you, every creed and color
With that being said, fuck your ethnicity
You understand that? We gon' talk about a lot of shit that concerns you, all of you

Now everybody, throw your hands up high
If you don't give a fuck, throw your hands up high
Throw your hands up high

Now I don't give a fuck if you
Black, white, Asian, Hispanic, goddammit
That don't mean shit to me
Fuck your ethnicity, nigga

Fire burning inside my eyes, this the music that saved my life
Y'all be calling it hip hop, I be calling it hypnotize
Yeah, hypnotize, trapped my body but freed my mind
What the fuck are you fighting for? Ain't nobody gon' win that war
My details be retail, man, I got so much in store
Racism is still alive, yellow tape and colored lines
Fuck that, nigga look at that line, it's so diverse
They getting off work and they wanna see Kendrick
Everybody can't drive Benz's, and I been there, so I make it my business
To give 'em my full attention, ten-hut, man, I gotta get my wind up
Man, I gotta get down with God 'cause I got my sins up
Matter of fact, don't mistake me for no fucking rapper
They sit backstage and hide behind the fucking cameras
I mosh pit, had a microphone and I tossed it
Had a brain, then I lost it
I'm out of my mind so don't you mind how much the cost is
Penny for my thoughts, everybody, please hold up your wallets
Yeah man, I'm the mailman, can't you tell, man?
Going postal, never freeze up, when I approach you
That's starstruck and roast you, oh my
HiiiPower

Reporting live from Planet Terminator X
I am Martin Luther King with a AK-47

Now I don't give a fuck if you
Black, white, Asian, Hispanic, goddammit
That don't mean shit to me
Fuck your ethnicity, nigga

I'm tired of y'all, 'cause everybody lied to y'all
And you believe it, recognize them false achievements
It's treason and I'm Tylenol
I knock out when you knock it off
Knock on the doors of opportunity, I'm too involved
I'm no activist, I'm no Einstein before calculus
I was kicking that math, dropping that science like an alchemist
And I be kicking that ass
Lyrically I'm UFC, if a UFO had came for me
I'mma come back with the head of an alien, don't alienate my dreams
Get it right, get a life, I got two
That's a metaphor for the big shit I do
Boy, TMI, TSA, man I'm fly
Put wings on my back, that a plane or a angel?
Both like a pilot with a halo, whoa gross

I mean, I've seen so many things come through them, him, her, you
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, I'm just a messenger
Yeah, I know life's a bitch, get the best of her
Put them three's up, they notice that we up
HiiiPower and the power in the people and if they don't believe us, they'll die
Wizard

Now I don't give a fuck if you
Black, white, Asian, Hispanic, goddammit
That don't mean shit to me
Fuck your ethnicity, nigga
