How to topple a statue

For hundreds of years you've torn people down

For hundreds of years you've built up walls

For hundreds of years you've raped, abused, made THEM insuperior
And now you want to teach someone how to topple a statue
You told them they werent enough

You've told them they arent equal

You've deminished their history

You've praised the events that got us here

You've supported all the ideas

And now you look around cause now they're tired, after all these years
And now you want to teach someone how to topple a statue
You placed these walls to keep people in

You built these walls to push people out

You created these structures to break us apart

And now you're mad they're coming together

Cause you built these walls
And now you want to teach someone how to tear down a wall
You told them they werent white enough

You brought them from overseas

You told them they'd never be smart enough

You brought them this thing called religion

Took away beliefs they were born with

And made them depend on everything you were
And now you want to teach someone how to tear down a wall....
I guess you would be the PROFESSIONAL.
