An array of man made borders
Even brick walls, tall brick and morter
To keep ya'll sons from ya'll daughters
Separate the latter from the former

from Homeboy Sandman – Strange Planet Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is talking about borders around the world that are straight lines. These types of borders, abundant in Africa and other colonised parts of the world, cut through tribal boundaries and separate families and groups that have coexisted and lived together for many thousands of years. It also references the use of walls to keep families apart for example the Berlin Wall and the ‘White Wall’ between the US and Mexico, among others.
