The new and official racism

Rev. Joseph Lowery, well-known "civil rights" advocate, gave the benediction at the inaugural today:
“To those days when black will not be asked to get back — when brown can stick around — when yellow can be mellow, when the red man can get ahead man, and when white will embrace what is right.”
The theological claim that white currently embraces what is wrong is familiar, but where did "when yellow can be mellow" come from?

This wasn't a spur of the moment thing: Rev. Lowery has delivered this prayer before.
