NOFX – Don’t Call Me White (Live)


I love NOFX, they always are fun

Artist: NOFX
Album: Drunk In Public
Year: 1994

Lyrics:
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we’re in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what’s the explanation for the malice, for the spite?
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
I wasn’t brought here, I was born
Circumsized, categorized, allegiance sworn,
Does this mean I have to take such shit
For being fairskinned? No!
I ain’t a part of no conspiracy,
I’m just you’re average Joe.
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Represents everything I hate,
The soap shoved in your mouth to cleanse the mind
The vast majority of sheep
A buttoned collar, starched and bleached
Constricting veins, the blood flow to the brain slows
They’re so fuckin’ ordinary white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
We’re better off this way
Say what you’re gonna say
So go ahead and label me
An asshole cause I can
Accept responsibility, for what I’ve done
But not for who I am
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
Don’t call me white, Don’t call me white
