I've been down so long it look like up to me They look up to me I got fake people showin' fake love to me Straight up to my face, straight up to my face
Had to start this post with a little sermon from Drake. When you been down for so long it is easy to start to see things backwards. You're so used to not receiving real sincere authentic love and appreciation that any kind gesture might make you ecstatic, when really it's nothing special, and it some cases is actually being used as a way to take advantage of you. This is what's happening to the black community. From Kim Kardashian's sudden passion for prison reform to natural hair websites posing as "for us, by us" but really being for them, by them...it's all fake love.
