how is it possible that Kids are being executed in the street for playing their music?
how can the man who shot the teen be found not guilty of murder
yet guilty of attempted murder as he only killed one of them
but he shot at all of them
how is this possible?
explain it. go ahead. explain it to yourself.
what do you come up with?
waiting for you to view me as a human being
waiting for you to recognise why you feel a slow burn around me
12 years a slave anyone?
same general subject
one more sensitive than the other
one story true they say
spicy or mild flavor
proves one thing
its still ok to profit from slavery
and still pay no reparations to those effected today
because the money made from it is everywhere
but not where we live
nothing distributed for the myriad ways weve been systematically, categorically destroyed
and, conversely nothing to stop a white man from getting a job, a loan, a house
and nothing to stop a white man from killing any black boy he wants
and then go ahead and eat the fact that the first black president is in office
you were a fool if you thought that meant something
I really want the brother to prove me wrong
this is the third killing of this sort in recent memory
but its the same as it ever was
some act as if the same regard that allows one group of people
to do that to another
has faded away
its truly alive and well
and as shockingly devastating that is to those that dont live here
its all we know and worse
so pardon my fire if i cook you with my eyes
underneath my smile
if you ask
‘why you mad bro?’
