They're gettin self-esteem, Lu (Dumb it down!)
These girls are trying to be queens, Lu (Dumb it down!)

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Gemini) – Dumb it Down Lyrics on Rap Genius


Dear Mr. Fiasco,

As a direct result of your music, black girls have convinced themselves that they are actually “pretty”, and deserve things out of life besides pleasing a man and taking a low-paying job. We’re sure this is unintentional on your part, and ask you to please cease and desist.

If you want to make that Kanye money we talked about, you need to play ball.

Your friends,

The Corrupt White Power Structure
