Things are looking blacker
But black is looking whiter

from Shabazz Palaces – Youlogy Lyrics on Rap Genius


The first line is a double entendre:
1) Things are looking worse
2) Black people are becoming more common throughout the media and popular culture

Though these things seem antithetical to each other, it is explained by the second line which means that these black people or genres considered to be deeply rooted in black culture thoughout the world are selling out and becoming whitewashed (some notable examples include Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Slightly Stoopid)
