Another Verse from the song:

You rush into destruction 'cause you don't have nothin' left
The mothership can't save you so your ass is goin' get it


She is talking about whites and all of the destruction they have caused in the world.

Mothership= Rapture, and the ones who mistreated blks (god's children), gon' get left.

lol she i love how she writes her songs and the way she adds humor to it.

I love Erykah and understand her lyrics and meanings fine. But the average person listening to her songs without knowing what type of artist she is would definitely misinterpret her meanings. Her lyrics were written to take you on a mind trip.

it has nothing to do with color.  there are dumb ppl in every race.  The math threads prove that we are not all created equal

Erykah is deep, and I don't understand why people don't get what she is saying.
Same thing for Lauryn Hill.

It is not a black person's responsibility to understand her. I don't get the title of this thread to be honest.

This whole "black people were the first on earth" is a funny and tricky thing to debate.
If somebody does not understand her lyrics the way she intended them to mean, or if they have another interpretation what is the big deal? Why do you assume your interpretation is right?
