Misrepresented People

 
Stevie Wonder Lyrics
Bamboozled Soundtrack Movie, 2000
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Misrepresented People In 1492 you came upon these shores.
Seven hundred years, educated by the moors;
17th Century-- genocide and the gun
Middle Passage blessed to market the Africans.

In the so-called “Land of God”
My kind were treated hard.
From back then until now
I see, and you agree--
We have been a misrepresented people.

From back then until now
Just see my family tree;
We have been a misrepresented people.
We have been a misrepresented people.

19th century-- slavery destroyed.
Soldiers who fought and won
What’s known as “nigger-boys”.
20th century-- with freedom in my hand,
We invent ideas
Which helped us save a land,

But while I prayed to God
My moms and pops got whored.
From back then until now
You’ll see our history;
We have been a misrepresented people.

From back then until now
Just see my family tree;
We have been a misrepresented people
Yes, we have been a misrepresented people.

1969-- Black power's at the door.
1982-- Hop-hop was on the floor.
1992-- Gangsta crack prevailed.
1999-- Our colors filled the jails.

It is through the grace of God
That we all were not scarred.
From back then until now
We see no comedy;
We have been a misrepresented people.

From back then until now
Were we still a mystery;
We have been a misrepresented people.
Yes, we have been a misrepresented people.

Though we march across time,
A sea of victories,
We have been a misrepresented people.

From back then until now
You know we made you grow;
We have been a misrepresented people.
We have been a misrepresented people.

From back then until now
We see our destiny
To never be a misrepresented people.

Yes, we march across to time to free
A melody
To never be a misrepresented people.

No you must never be a misrepresented people.
