Let me ask you a question.. Why is it my skin color That bothers you so much? The fact that I have melanin It triggers you enough, To pull out a gun? Point it right to my head And take my life in a split second.
Let me Ask you a question
As far as I know, All our insides look the same. Whether it’s the most evil person in the world, Or the most kind hearted soul.
We all have the same kinds of stomach, heart, and lung.
So, So Why? Why is it my skin color that bothers you so much? That i look a little different, than what society has accepted is alright.
What does being racist, Bring to your table? Why do you think being any other color but white, Is being unstable Why does God making your skin a little light, Make you think you have powers And you rise up above
So Let ME ask you a question, For the very last time… Why is it that you live in the 21st century, But your ideology is still stuck in the 1820s.
Don’t you see? Go look at the nearest protest in your town Or go search for a video while inside It’s every race that’s screaming for justice We’re all standing by each other's side Our so called leader threatens us with force But like those many signs say, It’s “No justice, no peace” for us all
So many innocent lives taken, Linching was way back then, But they’ve brought it back in a legalized version You swore you would respect the humanity of those whom you encounter But here you are stepping and looking down on somebody’s father While he screams “I can’t breath” louder and louder Then we go out seeking Justice During a whole pandemic Risking our own lives For those who were wrongfully shot, But get left on the street dead For 12 hours just for showing love
A father shouldn’t have to fear for his life A mother shouldn’t have to teach her child How to stay safe, While doing the most peaceful things in their town Nobody should be scared to go on a jog Or be frightened by the police Just because their skin color is black
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend” Said Martin Luther King once So we will stand here to make a difference To make it be and stay love over hate.
