about

On September 28th 2016, Brooklyn based emcee/lyricist/songwriter CONQUEST releases "Dear White People (I Love White People)", a new millennium pro-black anthem from a Christian perspective that's racially inclusive rather than exclusive. "Dear White People" (produced by BEAT COUNCIL & CONQUEST himself) expresses the ideal that resentment of other races or racism shouldn't be the automatic assumption when one is passionate about his/her particular race & CONQUEST uses everything from the deaths of Alton Sterling & Sandra Bland to his love of Aesop Rock & Ashley Graham to illustrate that point.

Don't let them call you a racist
If you got your black fist up in the air making a statement
Beyoncé had the Panthers in Formation
So Morgan & Lauhren's reporting she's out misbehaving....
On Super Bowl stages, Rudy says she's 'anti-cop'
Do your history Mr. Giuliani & I got
More for you to disregard when I'm defining pro-black
Giving snapshots of the streets, but this ain't 'Kodak'
'Black' imagery is high definition
I challenge you, think critically despite your suspicions
I interrupt your thinking that relied on tradition
That left Sandra Bland hung out to dry while imprisoned
Listen, I'm a sharpshooter
Assassinating political misconceptions, yeah I'm hard to the...
Core, raw in a Metallica tee
& Skater jeans & anything else? It ain't blacker than me
See...

(Pre-Chorus/Bridge)
Just because I'm pro-black
Doesn't mean I'm anti-white
King in my black skin
Doesn't mean I'm anti-Christ
Black pride's a raging fire
They've rather see candlelights
Just because I'm pro-black,
Doesn't mean I'm anti-white
Yeah, you gotta deal with it
I don't hate your blue eyes...
I'm being real with it
Listen up...
Just because I'm pro-black,
Doesn't mean I'm anti-white
Dear white people
I'm that change in Samantha White

(Chorus)
Yeah, uhhh, I love white people
Yeah, uhhh, I love white people
Yeah, uhhh, I love white people
As long as they know my life matters
& they're down to change the standard
Yeah, uhhh, I love white people
Yeah, uhhh, I love white people
Yeah, uhhh, I love white people
'Cause we're all saved by the blood
But don't look at me as a thug.

Anti-white? you must be insane
That LOGIC's kinda SHADY when there's Leah James
I'm a fan of Ashley Graham, plus size with curves
Like I love Jill Scott, that's my word & my heroes were....
Straight Outta Compton & straight up pop
I studied Nasir Jones & Aesop Rock
I loved two non black girls who ate up 'Pac
& my daughter's best friend will have you straight up shocked
You should've known a Caucasian would've been her road dawg
Her first crush at 5 had blue eyes & a mohawk
So when I say I'm pro-black, I'm not attacking lack of melanin
I'm urging youth that's black to pull up pants & act like gentlemen
Not 'cause of Cosby's reprimand
But because you're often seen as the threat at hand & not the better man
Who never go a lot further, they're 'Bob Schmurdered'
By a justice system going light on a Brock Turner
So I don't trust a racist cop further
Than I can throw him knowing they choke us out & leave us on the block murdered
This 'Real America'? Please stand up
Does my life matter or you rather see this rapper handcuffed?
'Cause a lot of us are studious college kids
With Staceys that don't Dash to Clueless politics
& Yes, I'm pro-black, the truth is obvious
I'm not attacking you, yet we're all shot in Baton Rouge

(Pre-Chorus/Bridge)

(Chorus)
