For Cape Coloured for realizing we're African

from Talib Kweli (Ft. Jean Grae) – Black Girl Pain Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cape Coloured specifically is used for the people of mixed race in the Cape region of South Africa. Ancestry may include European settlers, indigenous Khoisan and Xhosa people, and slaves imported from the Dutch East Indies (or a combination of all). People from India and the islands within the Indian Ocean region were also taken to the Cape and sold into slavery by the Dutch settlers. Slaves of Malay ancestry were brought from Indonesia, Malaysia, Madagascar, and Mozambique. This diverse assortment of people was subsequently classified as a single group under the Apartheid regime. Coloureds are not therefore considered black and others do not consider themselves black
