I'm working on lyrics for a new talkin' blues (what I believe is now called "rap"; well, isn't it?). The lyrics deal with the amount of lying in society and the media these days, and needs a passionate singer to give the song some righteous anger. Anyone interested?

Here's a hint:
The US census has released figures indicating that my home county, Marin County, in California, now has, to quote the lyrics:"Seven of the ten whitest cities in the nation." Here's a sample:

Now the county that I come from
Has a fearsome reputation:
Seven of the ten whitest
Cities in the nation.
They preach an awful lot
About the need for integration.
But it really doesn't leave a lot
To your imagination,
Figure how they got themselves
In such a situation:
Seven of the ten whitest
Cities in the nation.
Gettin' hard to see the truth
With all the lyin' in the way,
Awful hard to find the truth
With all that lyin' in the way.
