  • Lyrics:

    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
    An 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
    Sew When The
    Going Gets Rough
    I Ain’t Scared Of
    Your Brother
    I Ain’t Scared Of No Sheets
    I Ain’t Scare Of Nobody
    Girl When The
    Goin’ Gets Mean

    (L. T. B. Rap Performance)
    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 Being A Color

    (Michael)
    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

    Ooh, Ooh
    Yea, Yea, Yea Now
    Ooh, Ooh
    Yea, Yea, Yea Now

    It’s Black, It’s White
    It’s Tough For You
    To Get By
    It’s Black , It’s White, Whoo

    Tolerance And Black History Tolerance And Black History Presentation Transcript

    • February: Black History Month
      Information and video
      for advanced EFL lessons
    • What is tolerance?
      Toleration and tolerance are terms used in social, cultural and religious contexts to describe attitudes which are &quot;tolerant&quot; (or moderately respectful) of practices or group memberships that may be disapproved of by those in the majority. In practice, &quot;tolerance&quot; indicates support for practices that prohibit ethnic and religious discrimination. Conversely, &apos;intolerance&apos; may be used to refer to the discriminatory practices sought to be prohibited. A Wikipedia definition
    • February& Black History
      Black History Month is a remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated annually in the United States (US) and Canada in February and the United Kingdom in the month of October.
      The remembrance was founded in 1926 by United States historian Carter G. Woodson as &quot;Negro History Week&quot;.[1] Woodson chose the second week of February because it marked the birthdays of two Americans who greatly influenced the lives and social condition of African Americans: former President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and former slaveFrederick Douglass. Woodson also founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, now the Association for the Study of African American Life and History.
    • Black History Facts
      When the tradition of Black History Month had started in the US, many in mainstream academia had barely begun to explore black history. At that point, most representation of blacks in history books was only in reference to the low social position they held as slaves and their descendants.
      Before Great Britain made it illegal for the colonists to be involved in the slave trade, between 600,000 and 650,000 Africans were forcibly brought to America. They were transported across the Atlantic and sold into forced labor for the rest of their lives, leaving family and home behind.
    • More facts
      Slavery has existed throughout the world since ancient times. However, one big difference between slavery in many cultures and the slavery that was experienced in America was that while slaves in other cultures could gain freedom and become part of society, African-Americans did not have that luxury. Because almost all of the Africans on American soil were slaves, it was extremely hard for any black person who had gained freedom to be accepted into society. Even after slavery was abolished following the Civil War, black Americans had a difficult time of being accepted into society.
    • Civil Rights Movement
      The barriers facing African-Americans after the Civil War were numerous, especially in the South. Jim Crow Laws such as Literacy Tests and Grandfather Clauses kept them from voting in many southern states. Further, the Supreme Court ruled that separate was equal and therefore blacks could legally be forced to ride in separate rail cars and attend different schools than whites. It was impossible for blacks to achieve equality in this atmosphere, especially in the South. Eventually, the hardships that African-Americans faced became overwhelming and led to the Civil Rights Movement. Despite the efforts of individuals such as Martin Luther King, Jr., racism still exists today in America.
