Don’t Call Me Nigger, Whitey – Sly and the Family Stone ( performed by Ice-T and Perry Farrell )

Strange Fruit – Billie Holliday

Racist Friend – They Might be Giants

Buffalo Soldier – Bob Marley

Mississippi Goddam – Nina Simone

Fight the Power – Public Enemy

Let’s Face It – The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
