(Do you believe) that doin' right will make you richer
And just because you paid these White folks still won't call you nigger

from Big KRIT – The Alarm Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Do you really think that sticking to your morals will bring you wealth and prosperity in a world where the more corrupt and deceitful you are, the easier it is to get rich? And do you really think that even if you are fortunate to make some money that this sick society will look at you any differently, given the stereotypes and preconceived notions that they have about your people?
