This one kid said somethin' that was really bad
He said I wasn't really black because I had a dad
I think that's kinda sad
Mostly cause a lot of black kids think they should agree with that
It’s an undeniable trend that a lot of black kids in America grow up with out a father in the home, around 40% From this trend, there is a stereotype that all black kids don’t have dads, so this kid thinks that Gambino isn’t “really black” because of that. What makes matters worse, is that this causes some black kids to feel that they aren’t “really black” themselves because they have a father, which is just fucked up.
