Macka B - Effects of slavery

 

 



Well some people like to dismiss slavery like it was nutten

But you see slavery it can never be forgotten





Some people nah go like weh me say, but me a go say it anyway

Me a go talk about slavery and the effects of it today

Some people just don't want to know, about 400 years ago

But the thing about slavery it's affecting people now





I tell you no lie when I see a film about slavery water comes to my eye

You want to know why, because it was me

I'm the same black man hanging in that tree

You see, they couldn't control my soul so they had to control my body

Mysteriously I and I has returned as the big Rastaman Macka B, see





What about all the lifes that were lost, what about the black holocaust

What about African slavery and what it's done to you and me

What about all the blood that was shed what about the innocent dead

What about when the ship overload and they throw them overboard





Oh I can see the effects of slavery still inna the community

No identity suffering from amnesia, a case of lost memory

Black man and woman can't you see your history never start on the plantation

Original man, man of creation, father of all nation

Just stay strong let go the brainwashed mentality don't gwan like a Babylonian

The road is long you gonna meet a lot of obstacles don't bow to the temptation

Run Satan tell the boy fi go weh you no inna nutten wid him plan

Hold up your hand to the almighty one, you are part of a great nation, man





What about all the mothers that cried, what about all the children that died

What about all the suicide, and the pain we feel inside

What about all the shackles and chains what about the messing up of the brains

Don't know from where you came, you don't even know your name





Aided and abetted by some unscrupulous Africans

100 million is the estimation that died on the crossing or the plantation

With no compensation

Holocaust is a word that they use for what the Nazis did to the Jews

Compensation was never refused

Their own land they even got to choose

So what's wrong with us was the Black holocaust not so serious (4x)





Some people nah go like weh me say, but me a go say it anyway

Me a go talk about slavery and the effects of it today

Some people just don't want to know, about 400 years ago

But the thing about slavery it's affecting people now





What about all the lifes that were lost, what about the black holocaust

What about African slavery and what it's done to you and me

What about all the blood that was shed what about the innocent dead

What about when the ship overload and they throw them overboard





What about all the mothers that cried, what about all the children that died

What about all the suicide, and the pain we feel inside

What about all the shackles and chains what about the messing up of the brains

Don't know from where you came, you don't even know your name

You don't know from where you came, you don't even know your name

You don't know from where you came, you don't even know your name

Rastafar I
