Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white

The connotations wearin' my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white

I wasn't brought here, I was born
Circumcised, categorized, allegiance sworn
Does this mean I have to take such shit for bein' fair skinned, no?
I ain't a part of no conspiracy, I'm just you're average Joe

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white

Represents everything I hate
The soap shoved in the mouth to cleanse the mind
The vast majority of sheep
A buttoned collar, starched and bleached
Constricting veins, the blood flow to the brain slows
They're so fuckin' ordinary white
Don't call me white

Oh, we're better off this way?
Oh, say, what you're gonna say
So go ahead and label me
An asshole 'cause I can
Accept responsibility for what I've done
But not for who I am

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white

BURKETT, MIKE
