Baby Don't Turn Away (Jason Smith-Lafayette, LA)

Outside the sun is shining, But rain is falling from my eyes. Why is this happening to us? Baby please give me another try.

Before you turn your back on me, You need to know the love I have for you Is still in my heart. I tried to show it all to you, That all I feel is true. I just wanted you to know, So baby please don’t go.

I can’t cry any more. I have to accept the truth. As you walk out of my heart. I sit here not sure what I should do.

So many days I’ve hung onto love When it’s been over so long ago. What is it you want me to do? Just sit and cry like a fool? I know you are worth hanging onto.  I’ve already given you all my heart.

So now I can’t give anymore. There’s pain in my broken heart. Now silently, I’m dealing with the pain and hurt of my heart.

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
