    Crime...Black

     
    Crime…Black

    Liberty and justice for some,
    others…we might possibly cut them some slack,

    True injustice for those that are stained in the color black!

    Shipped with no return,
    Labeled as a threat,
    To America who owes us freedom,
    a debt they quickly forget,

    Placed one in the highest office,
    where we ripped him apart,
    can’t see pasted his color,
    He is man! He has a heart!
    Still just a piece of
    Property,
    in a country with a slave mentality

    A prop you see,
    to hold up a false reality,
    Black and in office,
    A coverup only to put others in a coffin

    Remember Trayvon Martin,
    No justice served
    Just another black stain
    On a street curb

    Headline, "Cop Kills Michael Brown!"
    What was the crime?
    Black in America, shot six times,

    Now another Mother cries justice for her son,
    her biggest worry that nothing will be done,

    And of course history will continue to repeat itself, if nothing was learned,
    Equality is!
    It is not earned!

    Black does not represent ignorance, nor poverty, nor anger or violence.
    As for this color,
    We can't wash it away!
    It's not a stain!
    It's black, brown,
    it's every shade!
    Beautiful!
    We love it!
    We won't deny it!
    It's here to stay….
