The Lyrics

True story.
There's a girl who's inside Burger King and she's cooking things in grease
She's an African who wishes she was white
Her skin is made of darkness and her grandmother is blind
Well, every night she'll always say,
"I wish that I was white"
"I wish that I was white"

"At home I'm drinking beer
Smoking from a bong
Shaving my own hair
And doing lots of wrong
All the skin I have
It all needs to be bleached
MJ had it done
So I want it done to me
Since I'm black, I frown
I look like Tiger Woods
I'll give anything I have
To look monkey-slappin' good
I'll throw away my beer
Try to sell my bong
They'll poke me when I'm there
They will handle me with care
My black skin will be gone..."

Now she might not need an X-Ray
But she'll change all of her skin
She'll own a whole new body
And she'll show it to her friends
When she's there she'll be unconsious
She'll be alive when she gets home
I don't know how she'll afford this
Where's her money? She has none!

(for the interlude and the rest of the song, it seems that all you do is repeat the chorus a bunch of times. So I won't waste any space...)

How is this not racist? - January 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Why would an African need to wish to be white? Why does the African have to work at Burger King? Is she not capable of having a better job because she is not white? You sure have a funny way of not being racist!

This is totally racist, even though you claim it not to be!!!
Well I THINK it's okay. - April 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Well I GUESS it's kinda racist. What's so wrong about an African wishing to be white?. A bunch of African-Americans wish that, just as a bunch of white people wish they were black, or brown or red or any other skin color. So I don't think the girl wanting to be white is that much of racism. What the.....?. I see ALOT more whites working at Burger King than african americans I rarley see them there that dosen't MEAN ANYTHING. It's just that YOU make all this up in YOUR MIND. Like oh yeah this person said this so it MUST mean it has something to do with her skin color?. Okay.....?. Yeah, at some point of view I AGREE it is racist especially this line..."Since I'm black, I frown" "And doing lots of wrong All the skin I have It all needs to be bleached". So YES those LINES are WRONG. I just think some people are paranoid and try to make this bigger. Now, if he/she was racist?. What's the big deal?. I DOUBT they will ever harm ANYBODY and there is NOTHING wrong with them, they just have a more close mind and that is how THEY must have been raised THEY can have thier own believes even if sometimes it DOSE seem a little ODD.
