"White Devil Rise" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
White
Devil
Rise

you speak my name, I do not mind
To give me credit is so kind
I'm flattered that I have your fear
You wake the sleeping demon here

white
Devil
Rise

I hear the lies
Brotherhood at my side
You call me white, you bet I am
Now see my beast rise up in flames

white
Devil
Rise

stare at the ashes of the ages
Stand a devil up inside
Pray to a god that cannot help you
My beast will feast upon his eyes

white
Devil
Rise

    General CommentIt definitely took a lot of balls for Danzig to respond to Louis Farrakhan's psycho babble about racism.What makes me laugh is that like most radical Muslims Farrakhan hates the Jews.There's racism right there for you.My high school was 60% black and I used to get beat up on a regular basis on the crime of being white.But when I would confront them on their racism I was the one that was racist.I'm not racist,in fact,I have dated black women and have lately become more attracted to them than white women.However,I don't offer apology for the past since I wasn't even born when all the REAL racism in the country was happening.I do admit that white people did some horrible things that are unforgiveable and I don't blame black people for being angry,but that was the past.Instead of carrying that anger and hatred both white and black people need to work together and learn from the past.Otherwise racism will just keep lasting from generation to generation.

    General CommentCool song. Before anyone jumps to say this is racist, let me say this. You have 20 billion songs attacking racism by white racists or attacking "the pro-white system". Exaggerated like fucking hell. Not many in music have the balls to attack the black racists like Louis Farrakhan, who this song is about.

    This song is supposedly about what would happen if some white people responded to the racist black Muslim shit with a war. Like saying....

    "We didn't do shit to you, but if you wanna get pissy, we'll show you bigots what these white devils can do, and we got the numbers advantage, assholes."

    Any time someone attacks black racists, you know some people will call him racist. I commend him for having the balls to do this song. Racism is racism. It doesn't just go in one direction.

    General CommentNot every white person now can be blamed for the past and the actions of a few. Many of us are victims of poverty, also, and hate the same government.

    General CommentI picked that up immediately, binormal. Some days, after trying to be unprejudiced and progressive, I'll just get pissed when some punk starts going on about how racist white people are.

    Monologue: Shit, man. Do you not hear your own words? I'm tryin' here, what about you? If thats not right, what do you want me to do instead? fucking lynch you? you're making me want to.

    General CommentI know. People in general need a scapegoat. Some people call themselves "progressive", but just reverse their bigotry towards the majority groups, rather than minorities.

    I mean, there is just as much bullshit among black progressives as there is among bigoted white conservatives. Most talks of "white privilege" are so outdated and ignore the impact of black people on much of society in the last 10 or more years.

    A large part of the "underground hip-hop" movement, for example, that's trying to promote messages to counter the gangsta stuff, promotes bullshit political messages, with hardcore black nationalist views. "White privilege" is not as big as they make it out to be.

    Like I said, I'm glad a nonracist has the cahones to address this kind of crap.
