In Miami Beach, it’s rich white folks
But Memorial Day, you-know-who do the most

from Lupe Fiasco – Hood Now (Outro) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Miami Beach and infamous Memorial Day Celebrations by minorities go hand in hand. Tell a white person who lives on a beach front property that a hurricane is imminent and they might try to “brave the storm” but tell them that Memorial Day is approaching and they’ll evacuate before African-Americans can even book their tickets to South Beach.
