Dedicated to the women across our nation who will inevitably be struggling much, much more, thanks to President Obama’s open alliance with the GOP & Wall Street in the wake of this manufactured debt ceiling debacle.

 ” How do you raise your kids in a ghetto?
How do you raise your kids in a ghetto?
Do you feed one child and starve another?
 Tell me, tell me, legislator.  

How do you make your bread in the ghetto?

How do you make your bread in the ghetto?

Baked from the souls of the dead in the ghetto.

 Tell me, tell me, legislator.

 Brave, free,
  Black, me
 I am the woman of the ghetto

… … . 

 How do we get rid of rats in the ghetto?

 How do we get rid of rats in the ghetto?

Do we make one black and one white in the ghetto?

Is that your answer, legislator?


Now how do you legislate, brother?

Listen to me.

How do you legislate, brother?

When you free one man and try to chain up the other,

 tell me, tell me, legislator.


How does your heart feel late at night?
How does your heart feel late at night?

Does it beat with shame,
And does it beat with fright?
Won’t you tell me, tell me, legislator?

    This song is too good to just be streamed on a laptop or while you’re at work. You need some bass cranked on this, people. Here’s a direct download.
