Ice Cube – Black And White lyrics
Did you get your race card?
I didn't get my race card
Did you get your race card?
Hell no, I didn't get my race card!
Did you get your race card?
Homeboy, where'd you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?
White boy, what is a race card?

Please don't believe the hype
Everything in the world ain't black and white
Everybody ain't a stereotype
Just because I look wrong, I'm about to do right
Please don't believe the hype
Everything in the world ain't black and white
Everybody ain't a stereotype
Just because I look wrong, I'm about to do right

Black as midnight, or bright as Snow White
You'd better do me right, or I'ma have to take flight
Put you on ice, blast on you twice
If you're a zebra, better come out them stripes
Just because I'm dressed like I'm straight out of jail
Make more money then them white boys at Yale
And got more sense than your fucking President
That college graduate? He can't pay his rent
But don't call me brother, man
Unless your ass got my money in your other hand
Pull that black man shit, that white man shit
But see a suit and tie, and I'll still get your ass euthanized
'cause I never got my race card in the mail
Is that the reason why my life still hard as Hell?
I've been to jail, just like Martha Stewart
And we both told the judge that we didn't do it

Did you get your race card?
Hell, no, I didn't get my race card!
Did you get your race card?
Everybody, show me your race card!
Did you get your race card?
Yo, what the hell is race card?
Did you get your race card?
Can anybody tell me what is a race card?

Please don't believe the hype
Everything in the world ain't black and white
Everybody ain't a stereotype
Just because I look wrong, I'm about to do right
Please don't believe the hype
Everything in the world ain't black and white
Everybody ain't a stereotype
Just because I look wrong, I'm about to do right

Did you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?

Please don't believe the hype
Everything in the world ain't black and white
Everybody ain't a stereotype
Just because I look wrong, I'm about to do right
Please don't believe the hype
Everything in the world ain't black and white
Everybody ain't a stereotype
Just because I look wrong, I'm about to do right

Did you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?
Did you get your race card?
