      Stevie Wonder - Misrepresented People Música y Letra

      In 1492 you came upon these shores.
      Seven hundred years, educated by the moors;
      17th Century-- genocide and the gun
      Middle Passage blessed to market the Africans.
      
      In the so-called ""Land of God""
      My kind were treated hard.
      From back then until now
      I see, and you agree--
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      
      From back then until now
      Just see my family tree;
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      
      19th century-- slavery destroyed.
      Soldiers who fought and won
      What''s known as ""nigger-boys"".
      20th century-- with freedom in my hand,
      We invent ideas
      Which helped us save a land,
      
      But while I prayed to God
      My moms and pops got whored.
      From back then until now
      You''ll see our history;
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      
      From back then until now
      Just see my family tree;
      We have been a misrepresented people
      Yes, we have been a misrepresented people.
      
      1969-- Black power's at the door.
      1982-- Hop-hop was on the floor.
      1992-- Gangsta crack prevailed.
      1999-- Our colors filled the jails.
      
      It is through the grace of God
      That we all were not scarred.
      From back then until now
      We see no comedy;
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      
      From back then until now
      Were we still a mystery;
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      Yes, we have been a misrepresented people.
      
      Though we march across time,
      A sea of victories,
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      
      From back then until now
      You know we made you grow;
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      We have been a misrepresented people.
      
      From back then until now
      We see our destiny
      To never be a misrepresented people.
      
      Yes, we march across to time to free
      A melody
      To never be a misrepresented people.
      
      No you must never be a misrepresented people.
