Marks I erase like racism, I'm as large as a bigot

from Common – Sum Shit I Wrote Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Marks — Herbs, Lames + Marks on a page, as Com is writing his rhyme

Erase/Racism — Assonance

“large as a bigot” plays on the word bigot, and continues the idea of racism

Escapism suggests the R&B group Xscape, who scored major hits in 1993 with “Just Kickin' It” and “What I Need From You”
