Even now I get discouraged
Wonder if they take it all back
Will I still keep the courage
2pac is paranoid that the powers that be may “take it all back”, as in take away the freedoms black Americans have gained since the days of slavery.
Of course he means it hypothetically; he doesn’t think he’s gonna get enslaved tomorrow, but wonders if he did would he still have the courage to keep true to his values.
