In school they never taught 'bout
Hamburgers or steak
KRS-One by Sublime

KRS used to criticize the public school systems for not educating the youth about black customs and leaders. The hamburgers and steak line refers to a line off of KRS’s “My Philosophy”

Hear it first-hand from the intelligent brown man
A vegetarian, no goat or ham
Or chicken or turkey or hamburger
‘Cause to me that’s suicide self-murder

KRS often referred to himself as “The Teacher”, because his music was intended to educate.

KRS also made an entire track about vegetarianism called “Beef”.
