I'm black, whether I'm poor or rich
Or rich or poor though it's all the same shit
I'm black even though my skin's kind of light
That mean my ancestors was raped by somebody white
I'm black so I like to sing, dance and crack jokes
Eat good food and be around black folks
I'm black so I like the oldies on Sundays
Drink all night and still go to work Monday

I'm black so I like my kids lookin' real nice
'Cause I been poor and I know what it feels like
I'm black and I'ma say it loud like James Brown
People be proud 'cause we all up in the game now
I'm black and I'ma hold my right fist real high
Might see my man and we might get real high
I'm black and I know it and I ain't afraid to show it
I'm black and I'ma genius and a motherfuckin' poet, you know it

So proud to be just who I am, so proud to say that I'm me
So proud to be just who I am, so proud to be so free
I'm black, so proud to say that I made it
I'm black through all of the struggle and the hatred
I'm black and I'm not afraid to say it
I'm black, baby [Incomprehensible] over, say it again, yeah

I'm black, so I got a heart full of bravery
Do it for my peoples that went through slavery
I'm black, so you know I'm young good in sports
Ninety percent chance, I get hung in the court
I'm black, don't you be scared of me Mister
'Cause you don't really seemed to be scared of my sister
I'm black and I could ride first class too
Or buy an exotic car and might mirk pass you

I'm black and I don't need a tan in the winter
Mind strong and powerful, non-cipher can't enter
I'm black and I don't need jewelry to shine
Look at my skin color it's like the jewelry is blind
I'm black, they focus on the negative attention
Do something positive it never get mentioned
I'm black, listen it's a fact
Original man that wouldn't change it if I could and that's that

Yeah, yeah, so proud to be just who I am, so proud to say that I'm me
So proud to be just who I am, so proud to be so free
I'm black, so proud to say that I made it
I'm black through all of the struggle and the hatred
I'm black and I'm not afraid to say it
I'm black, I'm black, I'm black, oh, yeah yeah

I'm black even with a caramel complexion
Look in the mirror see Malcolm and Martin in reflection
I'm black just like the Panthers lookin' for an answer
This prejudice shit is like cancer
I'm black, look at my eyes the wool can't get pulled over
Look at my cars they stay gettin' pulled over
I'm black, meanin' Public Enemy's number one
Government lookin' in the hood sendin' in the guns

I'm black, I grew up off 'The Good Times Show'
Drink liquor and some weed let the good times roll
I'm black, I live for my wife and my seeds
And my mind with a find only God could exceed
I'm black, I got to show my homeboys love
First thing we learned in the hood was homeboy love
I'm black and I'm that if I ain't nothin' else
I'm black, I'm beautiful I love myself

Love myself, yeah
So proud to be just who I am, so proud to say that I'm me
So proud to be just who I am, so proud to be so free
I'm black, so proud to say that I made it
I'm black through all of the struggle and the hatred
I'm black and I'm not afraid to say it
I'm black, I'm black, I'm black, yeah
