The song takes on an alternative version of the past, with Fiasco imagining a history devoid of racism and black people employed as paid workers rather slaves. "I just started thinking, 'What if things had gotten off on a totally different foot?,'" explained the rapper in publicity materials. "What if they just came over to Africa and said, 'We want you guys to work for us.'"
