Free Your Mind
En Vogue Lyrics


I wear tight clothing and high heel shoes
It doesn't mean that I'm a prostitute
I like rap music wear hip hop clothes
That doesn't mean that I'm sellin' dope
Oh please forgive me, for having straight hair
It doesn't mean there's another blood in my heirs
I might date another race or color
Doesn't mean I don't like my strong black brothers

Why oh why must it be this way
Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow.
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow

So I'm a sistah
Buy things with cash
That really doesn't mean that all my credit's bad, oooh
So why dispute me and waste my time
Because you really think the price is high for me
I can't look without being watched, no
You rang my buy before I made up my mind, ow!
Oh now attitude, why even bother
I can't change your mind, you can't change my colour

Why oh why must it be this way?
Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind

Why oh why must it be this way?
Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be colour blind, don't be so shallow
Free your mind

Be Color Blind, don't be so shallow

Cc Silva

Just because you date others doesn't mean you don't like your black brothers don't be so shallow the press is hot why even bother why it has to be this way don't do it press trying to trying to get you against one another.

Per critical race theory, the lyrics of this song are white supremacy. Ugh. Seeing everything through the prism of skin color and judging others on it is now "anti" - racist because it is anti-whiteness. I wish I were joking.

Claire Knutton

Does colour matter?? NO IT DOES NOT, so everyone out there who think it does it doesn't, they're nice and not so nice people out there so don't discriminate

dan goth

Amen!

no peace

When En Vogue said "be color blind" they didn't mean "pretend you can't see color so you can ignore racism instead of working to get rid of it"

The way we look at politics around race has changed and the term is way more loaded now than it used to be. Whatever you might attribute to it from a modern perspective is questionable

Imagine being the kind of person who feels threatened by intersectional anti-racism
