    Look, black is beautiful, black is excellent
    Black is pain, black is joy, black is evident
    It's working twice as hard
    As the people you know you're better than
    'Cause you need to do double what they do so you can level them
    Black is so much deeper than just African-American
    Our heritage been severed,
    You never got to experiment with family trees,
    'Cause they teach you 'bout famine and greed
    And show you pictures of our fam on their knees
    Tell us we used to be barbaric, we had actual Queens
    Black is watching child soldiers
    Getting killed by other children
    Feeling sick, like "oh shit this could have happened to me"
    Your mummy watchin' tellin' stories 'bout your dad and your niece
    The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice
    A kid dies, the blacker the killer, the sweeter the news
    And if he's white you give him a chance, he's ill and confused
    If he's black he's probably armed, you see him and shoot
    Look, black is growing up around the barbershop
    Mummy saying stay away from trouble, you’re in yard a lot
    Studying for ages, appreciating the chance you got
    'Cause black is in your blood,
    And you ain't even got the heart to stop
    Black is stepping in for your mother because your father's gone
    Standing by your children when you haven't proven karma wrong
    Black is doing all of the above then going corner shopping
    Tryna help a lady cross the road to have her walking off
    Black is growing up around your family and making it
    Then being forced to leave the place you love
    Because there's hate in it
    People say you fake the shit,
    Never stayed to change the shit
    But black is being jealous,
    You'd be dead if you had stayed in it
    Black is struggling to find your history or trace the shit
    You don't know the truth about your race 'cause they erasing it
    Black has got a sour ****ing flavor, here's a taste of it
    But black is all I know,
    There ain't a thing that I would change in it
    Look, black ain't just a single ****ing color,
    Man there's shades to it
    Her hair's straight and thick but mine's got waves in it
    Black is not divisive they been lyin' and I hate the shit
    Black has never been a competition,
    We don't make this shit
    Black is deadly
    Black is when you're freezing in your home
    And you can't get sleep
    But never feeling empty,
    'Cause you got twenty cousins in your country living stress free
    Walking for their water,
    Daughter wrapped inside a bed sheet
    Black is distant, it's representing countries
    That never even existed while your grandmother was living
    Black is my Ghanaian brother reading into scriptures
    Doing research on his lineage, findin' out that he's Egyptian
    Black is people naming your countries on what they trade most
    Coast of Ivory, Gold Coast, and the Grain Coast
    But most importantly to show how deep all this pain goes
    West Africa, Benin, they called it slave coast
    Black is so confusing, 'cause the culture?
    They're in love with it
    They take our features when they want
    And have their fun with it
    Never seem to help with all the things
    We know would come with it
    Loud in our laughter, silent in our sufferin'
    Black is being strong in sight of facing defeat
    Poverty made me a beast, I battled the law in the streets
    Well you were struggled,
    But your struggle ain't a struggle like me
    Well how could it be
    When your people gave us the odds that we beat?
    I mean, ****ing hell,
    What about our brothers that are stuck in jail?
    That couldn't bust a bell, they held a bird
    And gotta live with it
    Black is being guilty until proven that you're innocent
    Black is saying "free my ****ing niggas
    Stuck inside in prison cells"
    They think it's funny, we ain't got nothing to say to them
    Unconditional love is strange to them; it's amazin' 'em
    Black is like the sweetest ****ing flavor,
    Here's a taste of it
