Why do we fight – both black and white
cause we don’t understand
If you give, you get but if you want respect
then please understand
Hatred begins and no one wins
tell me who pays the price
From our generation to the next
Have respect for human life

A man kills another man for things he doesn’t understand
How can someone take another life
If people just don’t give a damn
can’t respect a man for what he is a man
Then the world will destruct from racial strife

I do believe in self and self-respect is where it starts
you have to love yourself before you love
And if love must play a part – then it has to come from your heart
In order for the pain of hate to cease

We got – we got – we got to stop hatred
Hatred is something perpetrade by lies
We got – we got – we got to have justice
The system plays God by who lives or dies
We got – we got – we got to have equality
Do not judge a man by the color of his skin
We need – we need – we need understanding
To make this world a better place to live in
