I Know You Don't Care About Me Video:
/From the slaveship to the chain/From the task masters whip to my brain/Kidnapped, enslaved, raped and killed by the lynch clan/Again and again/Is it the origin of the skin or the face of a race/Why you don't care about me?
/Now, I know you don'T care about me/I'm just a nigger walking down your street/The brother did nothing wrong/but now life is gone/So, I know you don't care about me/Code of silence you say/Yet your action speaks so loud and clear/Diallo's killers going free paid by society/Now I know you don't care about me

/Hey-we should be burning and looting, believe me, start exchange 41 fe 90/Our acestors wey build this country and all sticks and whips and kicks and punches meanwjile your living like some bird in bunches/Tell me where the justice much less the dances?/Mi world must know that man still in darkness
/Lord! Rapings, torture, kill and maim. Their injustice remains the same/killing people in the Queens name/No one will gets the blame, and my people keep going down the drain/All these crimes we've come to read, they'll be written in black history/Crimes of injustice and inhumanity, perpetuated by society, and my people/are living in poverty
/My struggle for survival is to be accepted and treated as a member of the human family, who's practice should reveal the fundamental right and duty to be humane in all judgement and action to all humanity/So, why don't you care about me?/I'm just a nigger walking down your street/The brother did nothing wrong, but now life is gone/and I know you don't care about me/Code of silence you say/but your action is so loud and clear/Are Diallo's killers going free? Paid by society/And I know you don't care about me
/Amadou Diallo, they killed him for nuttin'/No crime him did not do!/And just like him there were others who suffered for wait they didn't do/We're living in a system, we are the victim and that is so true/Amadou Diallo - Reggae music knows your name/Amadou Diallo - Reggae music knows your name
/Yo, Ziggy, check this out!/It's kinda strange how the same things happening/over and over again, over and over again/And they say their constitution's for the benefit of all/It's alie again, it's a lie again/Tell me when will this injustice change/Tell me when will we stop feeling pain/Just the way we survive in their eyes it's a crime/You're to blame for all that's bleeding this way/Yes, we know you don't care about we/Yes, we know you dont't care about we
"We want to talk right down earth in language that everybody here cam easily understand. We all agree tonight - all of the speakers have agreed - that America has a very serious problem! Not only does America have a serious problem/But our people have a very serious problem."
