"White Like That" as written by and Richard Michael Patrick....
One thing is for sure I don't need it
Makes my life a war
What a bore
Don't you understand
It wasn't ever my plan
I guess you just can't see
What you do when you blame it all on me
White like that
I'm white like that
It's all the same
Said one thing and mean another
Who are you gonna lose?
Who are you gonna choose?
What do you think I'm gonna do?
What are you thinking?
White like that
I'm white like that
It's all the same
They call me white trash
White like that
I'm white like that
It's all the same
White like that
I'm white like that
It's all the same game
So who's gonna lose?
Who's gonna lose?

    General CommentThis song takes a reverse look at racism and seems to deal with being discriminated against because you're white.
    n "White Like That" he sings "They call me white trash," delivering a preemptory punch, before the world can. Not that the world would judge him that harshly - but Filter's tenet is that perception is reality.

    General CommentIt doesn't require explaination, being quite literal and blatant. I suppose thats why there are so few comments. He's pissed about having to carry the burden of former generation's race relations. Whites are demonized as slavedriving ignorant bigots all the time in our media, and some of us are sick of being taught we should feel bad for something we have nothing to do with. Its the past so move on.

    General Comment^ this is correct. I think it also points out the hypocrisy.. maybe it's a jab at that song cool like that by digable planets.. "I'm cool like that, black like that" (can't remember). Black people ask to not be judged, but they judge white people and draw a huge line between them to have some sort of noteriety when most of the time they've probably never gotten a racial comment/judgement they didn't blatently ask for. So what are you proud of? Basically, they demand equality and have their own way of "acting" when in reality, that wouldn't effect how you act at all. It's just what's expected these days, and they imbrace that like it's culture. Yeah right. Lots of contraditions, know what I'm saying? Kick ass song.
