We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Skylar Grey) – Words I Never Said Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Fear keeps the society quiet, and people are afarid to stand up and speak for what’s right… mainly due to some of the backlash associated with it.
For example, Kanye West on MTV regarding Hurricane Katrina talking about the obvious differences in the media between Blacks and Whites (how Black people “loot” and White people “look for food” when they’re doing the same thing) and a few other points. Kanye spoke from the heart and did what he felt was right.
