Who gave you the right to take away mine?
Who gave you the right to tell me where to sit
To eat
To go to the bathroom
And even drink some water

Who gave you the right to stand and stare?
This is not a zoo
I am not an animal

Why do you treat me this way?
Because I'm black?
Why, that's no reason at all.

We are the same.
Whether you're white, black, mexican, or asian
We are all the same.

"Please, I'm dying out here.
I just need some food"
You replied, "Whites only."
And slammed the door in my face
Who gave you the right?
