White man, is somethin I tried to study
But I got my hands bloody, yeah
Cube wasn’t reading text books to learn about white people, he was dissecting them.
Another possible reading could be that when you study the White man’s real history, all you see is colonialism, genocide and other barbarism and none of their so called Western “civilization.”
