Black or White
BlackandWhiteGlee
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Three
Released: January 31, 2012
By: Michael Jackson
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Artie, Kurt, Mercedes, Rachel, and Santana
Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: Michael

Black or White by Michael Jackson is featured in Michael, the eleventh episode of Season Three. It is sung by the New Directions.

This is the last song performed in the episode. The New Directions sing it together in the auditorium and all of the Dalton Academy Warblers join in, except for Sebastian, who sits in the audience enviously watching. 

Blaine is absent during this performance due to being slushied earlier in the episode by the Warblers. Sugar and Tina were absent for unknown reasons, but references in the following episodes hint at them being ill. 

After the song, Sebastian explains that it will take a lot more than a Michael Jackson number to beat the Warblers at Regionals. Santana and Kurt reveal the tape with Sebastian's voice admitting to having put rock salt in the slushie that injured Blaine. The New Directions leave, with Artie hollering "School's out!".

Lyrics

Artie:
Ow, ow
I took my baby on a Saturday bang
But is that girl with you?
Yes, we're one and the same

Rachel:
Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight
Hee, ah

Artie with Rachel and New Directions:
But, if you're thinking about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

Artie:
Ooh

Kurt:
They print my message in the Saturday sun
I had to tell them I ain't second to none

Mercedes (with Santana):
And I told about equality
Ain't it true, either you're (wrong or you're right)

Santana (Artie):
Woo (Uh)

Artie with Rachel and New Directions:
But, if you're thinking about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

Artie:
Hee
Don't bet

Rachel:
Heehee

Santana with New Directions:
I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
So, when the going get rough
I ain't scared of your brother
I ain't scared of no sheets
I ain't scared of nobody
Girl, when the going get mean

Artie:
Protection for gangs, clubs, and nations
Causing grief in human relations
It's a turf war on a global scale
I'd rather hear both sides of the tale
See, it's not about races, just places, faces
Where your blood comes from is where your space is
I've seen the bright get duller
I'm not going to spend my life being a color

Kurt (with Mercedes):
Don't tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking (dirt in my eye)

Artie with Rachel, Santana, and New Directions:
But, if you're thinking about my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white
I said if you're thinking of being my baby
It don't matter if you're black or white

Artie with Mercedes and New Directions:
I said if you're thinking of being my brother
It don't matter if you're black or white

Santana:
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Woo

Rachel:
Black or white

Artie with New Directions (New Directions):
It's black, it's white (Oh, oh, oh)
(with Santana: It's tough for you to get by) (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's black, it's white (Rachel: Yeah) (Artie: Woo)
(It's tough for you to get by) (Santana: Yeah, yeah)
It's black, it's white (Santana: Woo)
It's tough for you to get by (Yeah, yeah, yeah) (Rachel: Black or white)
It's black, it's white (Artie: Woo)
(It's tough for you to get by)
It's black, it's white (Santana: Woo, come on)
It's tough for you to get by (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's black, it's white (Artie: Woo) (Santana: Oooh)
(It's tough for you to get by)
It's black, it's white
It's tough for you to get by (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's black, it's white (Artie: Woo)
