Der US-amerikanische Musiker Saul Williams verarbeitet in diesem Track rassistische Erlebnisse aus seiner Kindheit und Jugend.

“I used to use bleaching creme
Til Madam C.J. Walker walked into my dreams
I dreamt of being white and complimented by you
But the only shiny black thing that you liked was my shoes
Now, I apologize for bottling up
All the little things you said that warped my head and my gut” (vgl. Lyrics auf Genius.com)

In einem Interview sagt er dazu:

“I had what was, for me, an awkward experience but I think is somewhat common for dark-skinned African Americans. I would receive kind of back-handed compliments, like you’re kind of cute to be so dark from people of color.”
