They School | 《我去炸学校》说唱版

SweetChigga 2019-10-28 16:37:33

        相信大家都还记得小时候常挂在嘴边的那首儿歌,“我去炸学校,校长不知道,一拉线我就跑,嗵的一声学校不见了。”至今想起来,嘴角还是会露出一丝会心的微笑。曾经淘气归淘气,但原本天真烂漫的歌词,不知在哪位“天才”的改动下,充满着肆无忌惮的童趣而又显得毫无违和感。而言归正传,在说唱界,也有这么一首类似的歌曲。不过相比之下,没有了让人笑哈哈的歌词,也勾不起你对孩提时代的甜美回忆,有的只是对黑奴时期美国教育制度和种族歧视的赤裸裸的批判。

        从1619年贩卖进北美大陆的第一批黑奴开始,美国政府就开始了对黑人的种族歧视。从电视新闻以及报纸书刊上,经常有了解到在那个时期,黑人所受到的不公待遇,白人与黑人的矛盾也愈发严重。在白人群体眼里,黑人穷困潦倒,头脑简单,四肢发达,吸毒成瘾,性生活混乱,平时不讲卫生,生活充满暴力。

        Dead Prez是来自美国纽约的著名地下说唱组合,成员stic man和M-1,在学生时代就经历过美国教育制度的黑暗和种族歧视的可恶,因此,写下这首歌,歌词字里行间充满了对冷酷现实的批判和思考,让人由衷的心生敬意。Dead prez作品多以硬核和政治说唱为主。这首They School收录在其第一张专辑Let’s Get Free,专辑中可以说首首精品,喜欢说唱的朋友千万不能错过。

出于兴趣,我试着翻译了这首歌,译文如下:

Why haven't you learned anything?
你怎么什么都没学到啊
Man that school shit is a joke
真的,读书什么的特么纯属扯淡
The same people who control the school system control
决定国家教育制度的那帮人
The prison system, and the whole social system
其实也同时在操控着国家的监狱制度,甚至整个社会制度
Ever since slavery, naw I'm saying?
从黑人奴隶制实行时起就是如此,明白吧

[Verse 1 -stic.man]
I went to school with some redneck crackers
上学时我和一群红脖子白老外在同一班级

(redneck就是:红脖子,同cracker一样是黑人对白人的蔑称。美国南部贫穷的农民,因为每天在太阳下劳动,所以他们的脖子老是红红的。这些南部农民大多数是白人。一般都比较粗暴,思想顽固,没有知识,而且种族观念很深,不喜欢黑人。)
Right around the time 3rd Bass dropped the Cactus Album
那会儿3rd Bass刚刚发行第一张专辑

But I was reading Malcolm
而我却沉浸在Malcom X的书籍(美国黑人民权运动领导人物之一)

I changed my name in '89 cleaning parts of my brain
89年我改了名字,像清洗枪支
Like a baby nine
洗掉脑子里种族歧视的污渍
I took a history class serious
历史课上我总能集中精力
Front row, every day of the week, 3rd period
每次都争着坐前排,听老师讲第三时期
Fucking with the teachers head, calling em racist
结果讲的都是TM狗屁,满嘴的种族主义
I tried to show them crackers some light, they couldn't face it
乡巴佬们听了我的建议,却听不进这道理
I got my diploma from a school called Rickards
我从一所叫里卡斯的学校毕业
Full of, teenage mothers, and drug dealing niggas
那里好多未成年妈妈,还有贩毒的同学
In the hallways, the popo was always present
教学楼打听总能看到警察
Searching through niggas possessions
对黑人学生做搜身检查
Looking for, dope and weapons, get your lessons
以防我们携带枪支大麻,不乖乖听话

That's why my moms kept stressin'
妈妈总教导我要好好学习
I tried to pay attention but they classes wasn't interestin'
我也有认真听讲,但真的无聊至极
They seemed to only glorify the Europeans
课上讲的都是些高歌白人的东西
Claiming Africans were only three-fifths a human being
而黑人在选举时只有正常人五分之三的比例
