Affirmative action,
what's this country coming to?
Affirmative action,
what's the white man gonna do?
It's another government handout and simply said
"You've got to hire a nigger instead"

I was down at the office, cleaning up the joint
Just doing a little extra, making brownie points
Cause I'd heard somebody say,
a promotion's on the line
So I was working hard, I wanted that promotion to be mine

So I asked the CEO if I could have a try
He said "you work hard, son and I know you qualify.
You're the best man for the job but it's out of my hands
I've got to give it to a nigger, courtesy of Uncle Sam"

Oh affirmative action,
what's this country coming to?
Affirmative action,
what's the white man gonna do?
It's another government handout and simply said
"You've got to hire a nigger instead."

Now I went looking for a new job the very next day.
I got an interview and things were surely going my way..
I was asked a lot of questions,
I was giving it my best
My qualifications were impeccable,
I could tell he was impressed

Then a nigger walked in and said
"yo, what's up
You need a man, well here I be. Say bro, you're in luck"
The boss man looked at me and said "what can I do?
Uncle Sam says I've got to hire the nigger instead of you"

Oh affirmative action,
what's this country coming to?
Affirmative action,
what's the white man gonna do?
It's another government handout and simply said
"You've got to hire the nigger instead"

Now we've gotta stop what's happening to you and me.
The feds have got to listen
and I'm sure you'll agree
We need to get their attention
and make them understand
I've been thinking about it lately
and I got a plan..

Oh let's act like a bunch of niggers and go out in the street.
And demonstrate
and raise some hell
to everyone we meet
We'll stop taking all this crap that we have in the past.
And tell Uncle Sam to stick the affirmative action up his ass.

So affirmative action,
what's this country coming to?
Affirmative action,
what's the white man gonna do?
It's another government handout and simply said
"You've got to hire a nigger instead"

Oh it's another government handout and simply said
"You've got to hire a nigger instead"

    General CommentWait you say being black is no different from being white but yet you think whites are the "superior race"
    So either you've made a break through and think blacks and whites are equal or you really are just retarded

    General Commentwhite or black you're equal, obviously you go through different stuff as you live in different social groups and stuff but the only difference to my eyes is skin colour and if you were to discriminate against people of a different skin colour you might as well hate people with acne, their skin's a different colour
    but the example that anti emo kid put forward is wrong, if someone is using their race to get benefits or w/e and i'd love to hear someone justify it
    conversly however if tht isn't the case and she really is being discriminated against then she's being wronged
    it's all about context to be fair

    General CommentThis song shows some of the truth in this country, grenade jumper, whites and blacks are equal, yet the gov't treats blacks as superior, is this fair, guess what, my Parain hurt his back because some dumbass on an oil rig left out a chemical and he fell, now he cannot stand for more than five minutes, he has not received one welfare check, he has to send my cousin and I out hunting so that he can feed his family, yet my next door neighbor is black, she has no job, seven kids from several different husbands, she parties every night and sleeps with several different men, she makes more money off the gov't than my mom makes working a full time job, she does not deserve one cent of it and she does not deserve her kids, she deserves to be homeless out on the street, because she is a lazy good for nothing moocher. Also I recently got a new teacher, he's black, he's a great teacher, but he said that a former college professor was also trying to get the job, he said that the only reason he got the job was because he was black. The fact is, that while affirmative action may have been useful at one point, but it is now crippling America.
