Afternoon Matinee: Protest - Black or White

Performed by Michael Jackson





I took my baby on a Saturday bang
Boy is that girl with you? Yes, we're one and the same
Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight

But, if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them I ain't second to none
And I told about equality and it's true
Either you're wrong or you're right

But, if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

I am tired of this devil, I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business, goin' when the going gets rough
I ain't scared of your brother, I ain't scared of no sheets
I ain't scared of nobody, goin' when the gettin' gets mean

Protection for gangs, clubs and nations
Causing grief in human relations
It's a turf war on a global scale
I'd rather hear both sides of the tale

See, it's not about races just places, faces
Where your blood comes from is where your space is
I've seen the bright get duller
I'm not going to spend my life bein' a color

Don't tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye
But, if you're thinkin' about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

I said if you're thinkin' of being my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white
I said if you're thinkin' of being my brother
It don't matter if you're black or white

It's black, it's white it's tough for you to get by
It's black, it's white
It's black, it's white it's tough for you to get by
It's black, it's white
