We came through the storm

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Matthew Santos) – American Terrorist Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A lot of people may think that “we” specifically refers to Blacks whose ancestors were involved in the Slave Trade, coming from Africa to America through sea storms and in inhumane conditions. When he says “we” he’s not narrating history, he’s lending a voice to those who have been oppressed by America.

Remember, this is art, not political science.
