Something's wrong, man.
Just don't be one of thesepeople that's surprised
that black folks got issues.
Them the peopleI can't deal with.
I'd rather talk to somebodythat don't agree with me
than somebody that's hadthey eyes closed.
"Hey, did you knowblack people--
Why are black people angry?"

This ain't new.
You think this just happenedlast couple of years?
Black folks been trying totell y'all forever
that they had some issuesand we sat--
We invented the blues!
(laughter and applause)
What more of a signdid you need?
We literally inventedan entire genre of music
based on sadness,that's how sad we were.
And we--the blues was created here.
