      This is a great story see below, it shows the power of the internet. When i first heard TZ's song, I was a bit put off by the repetitive beat, but it forced me to listen to the lyrics, which are damn powerful. "Chocolate Rain,every February washed away.." "...history crashing thru your veins"
      One cant help but notice the comments of the most likely white youth in the comments section as well as the one who wrote the post below. They cant seem to deal with his lyrics, ( which is ironically the reason racists posted it in the first place),so most of the comments are ridiculing, insulting and debasing him or talking about how he looks,etc. nevertheless the clips 17,000,000 HITS! simply amazing, and he was smart enough to offer it as a downloadable mp3. with that many hits, you may already have seen it, but just in case you didn't, here it is. i post it because its a great song...musicians -take note!



      Tay's song Chocolate Rain �
      or;
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwTZ2xpQwpA

      You'll Never be as Lucky as Tay Zonday

      Once upon a time, there was an unknown composer and musician named Tay Zonday . Tay had a remarkable voice but lackluster writing skills. Nevertheless, he published videos on Youtube, showing the world his works. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), one of his videos fell into the hands of a bunch of racist hyperactive lunatics. You may know them better as 4chan or /b/. With the intent of mocking and humiliating him, /b/ inadvertently drove Tay's song Chocolate Rain � to the top of Youtube's "most watched" list and then others started watching. Suddenly, Chocolate Rain had hundreds of thousands of views. Currently, it has over 11 million. Several interviews, TV appearances, and a few months later, Tay is back with a new song and a deal with Dr. Pepper. That's right, Tay has gone professional and I can't seem to embed the video. Regardless, here's Tay's new video: Cherry Chocolate Rain. Just goes to show you that if you catch the right person's attention, you might just make it big.
      You are here because you know something,what you
      know you can't explain,but you feel it.You've felt it
      your entire life; that theres something wrong with the
      world.You don't know what it is but it's there; a
      splinter in your mind... the matrix

      You know what? I saw this a few months ago, and never took the time to listen to the lyrics...I was stunned by his voice. Now after seeing your post, I can see the message.

      Asante Sana for pointing this out!!!

      Chocolate Rain
      The prisons make you wonder where it went

      Chocolate Rain
      Build a tent and say the world is dry
      Chocolate Rain
      Zoom the camera out and see the lie

      Chocolate Rain
      Forecast to be falling yesterday
      Chocolate Rain
      Only in the past is what they say

      Chocolate Rain
      Raised your neighborhood insurance rates
      Chocolate Rain
      Makes us happy 'livin in a gate

      Chocolate Rain
      Made me cross the street the other day
      Chocolate Rain
      Made you turn your head the other way

      (Chorus)
      Chocolate Rain
      quickly crashing through your veinshistory
      Chocolate Rain
      Using you to fall back down again
      [Repeat]

      Chocolate Rain
      Seldom mentioned on the radio
      Chocolate Rain
      Its the fear your leaders call control

      Chocolate Rain
      Worse than swearing worse than calling names
      Chocolate Rain
      Say it publicly and you're insane

      Chocolate Rain
      No one wants to hear about it now
      Chocolate Rain
      Wish real hard it goes away somehow

      Chocolate Rain
      Makes the best of friends begin to fight
      Chocolate Rain
      But did they know each other in the light?

      Chocolate Rain
      Every February washed away
      Chocolate Rain
      Stays behind as colors celebrate

      Chocolate Rain
      The same crime has a higher price to pay
      chocolate Rain
      The judge and jury swear it's not the face

      Dirty secrets of economy
      Chocolate Rain
      Turns that body into GDP

      Chocolate Rain
      The bell curve blames the baby's DNA

      But test scores are how much the parents make

      Chocolate Rain

      Chocolate Rain
      Cleans the sewers out beneath Mumbai

      Chocolate Rain
      'Cross the world and back its all the same
      Chocolate Rain
      Angels cry and shake their heads in shame

      Chocolate Rain
      Lifts the ark of paradise in sin
      Chocolate Rain
      Which part do you think you're 'livin in?

      More than 'marchin more than passing law
      Chocolate Rain
      Remake how we got to where we are.

      Yeah I have to agree, I watched it for the first time last night and was shocked.

      He was really trying to say something even though the world tried to make fun of him, his message is getting out regardless........because somebody will go beyond what the world has been saying.
