What do you mean you donít trust him?
Heís just starting out.
Just when did all this doubt and suspicion
Dare to come about?
Donít start projecting onto him
What his daddy did,
Give him a chance to grow and learn,
Besides, heís just a kid.
Yeah, heís a black male,
And Iím aware of the statistics,
But if we show him the way to go
Heís wonít have those characteristics.
Making assumptions this early in his life
Canít be that good for him.
Donít toss him out like yesterdayís news
Or reject him on a whim.
He has potential like anyone else
To make a difference in this world
So if you keep talking that negative talk
Iím sho-nuff gonna hurl.
So cut him some slack, get off his back
And let him do his thing.
Hey look, you just might need him later
When heís running everything.
