People, people we are the same

from Public Enemy – Fight The Power Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Chuck D. has said that “there is only one race, the human race.”

The point of this line is that anyone who claims racism is dead and doesn’t hurt anybody anymore is lying.

ALso, the repetition of “People, People” is a nod to James Brown’s Funky President (People It’s Bad)
