We should have talked about this a long time ago,
But I didn’t have to think about it,
And that's what this song is about.

White girl.
I want to change the world,
But I won’t change anything,
Unless I change my racist self.

It's a privilege, it's a background.
It's everything that I own,
It's thinking I'm the hero of this pretty white song,
It's thinking I'm the hero of this pretty white world.

White girl.
I want to change the world,
But I won't change anything
Unless I change my racist self.

    General Commentthis song is written to the riot grrrl audience. the scene was labeled as "white" "upperclass" and corin was addressing the issue of racism. saying we need to own this in order to get over it pretty much.
