Mississippi Burnin. (Lyric) by SupremeDreamer

Mississippi Seething v.2 [Revised & Re-titled.] ------------------------------------------------------------ It's so cold now, as I fold, content though not bold, here in this stance between time and memories seen so long ago that they've lost their sheen-- feeling like some whore who's a bore, leaving my customer flaccid 'cause my swaggin's rancid and [chorus] you could just kill me, hang me like some nigger on a Mississippi tree-- but that would amount to nothing, because I refuse to flee, (It's pointless since you broke my knees.) and I'll never cry "just kill me please". I'm a placid stillness that you can not seize, my subversion is a perpetual disease. [chorus] It was true that once only few could tolerate my frenzied debate, but now I pretend to accept my fate, now I'm something worthy of your hate-- an object of derision, fueling the riot with its confusion and leaving you with an eerie sensation of being bought; neither cold or hot, I fill you with rot and [chorus] you could just kill me, hang me like some nigger on a Mississippi tree-- but that would amount to nothing, because I refuse to flee, (It's pointless since you broke my knees) and I'll never cry "just kill me please". I'm a placid stillness that you can not seize, my subversion is a perpetual disease. I die in you, taking you with me. I die in you, taking you with me. [chorus] And despite everything, my limp form still sings with fury-- a sound that people wish to bury so they can forget its heat that 'causes them to sweat with fear while they're binging on warm glasses of beer, completely unaware that they consume me in surrender, and deny the emptiness of their hunger. [chorus] I die in you, taking you with me-- I die in you, taking you with me, and you could just kill me, hang me like some nigger on a Mississippi tree-- but that would amount to nothing, because I refuse to flee, (It's pointless since you broke my knees.) and I'll never cry "just kill me please". I'm a placid stillness that you can not seize, my subversion is a perpetual disease. [chorus] It's so cold now, as I fold, content though not bold, here in this stance between time and memories seen so long ago that they've lost their sheen-- feeling like some whore who's a bore, leaving my customer flaccid 'cause my swaggin's rancid and [chorus] you could just kill me, hang me like some nigger on a Mississippi tree-- but that would amount to nothing, because I refuse to flee (It's pointless since you broke my knees.) and I'll never cry "just kill me please". Like a nigger hangin on a Mississippi tree, I'm dying in you, taking you with me; a placid stillness that you can not seize, eating you alive and setting me free, a nigger at peace hangin on a Mississippi tree-- Dying in you and taking you with me, my subversion is a perpetual disease, a placid stillness that you can not seize. [chorus]

It is a fact that white people are more likely to get skin cancer than black people. It is also a fact that black people are more likely to suffer from sickle cell anaemia than white people. It is also a fact that that white people tend to have straighter hair than black people. In fact it is obvious that there are a large number of physical characteristics associated with a person's race. The brain is a part of the body, just as the skin, or the blood, or the hair is. Why should it be any different? The fact is that there is no reason to think characteristics such as personality and intelligence aren't also influenced by race. Of course such characteristics are partly a product of an individual's environment, but there is no doubt that different brains would deal with the same environment in different ways. If you attempt to argue that personality is a product of the soul, and not of the brain, then consider this: if you jab a pencil into someone's frontal lobes, their personality changes.

When it comes to racism, most people think it's wrong to generalise on the basis of race. They say things like "What you think has nothing to do with the colour of your skin". But that is the King of Generalisations. Is there any justification for it? It is perfectly conceivable that there could exist a race of people that were all evil and stupid. In conclusion, discriminating on the basis of race is only a stupid thing to do if your grounds for discrimination are unjustified. Thanks for listening.
