Incredulous
They hush when they mention us
Can't trust
Jus tice

41 shots
kills a black man in the Bronx
and now
just when I thought I slipped it
in Cincinnati a black man gets shot police
who were pursuing him for parking tickets

I thought he had a weapon is a punk's way to justify
Why
A Black family cries

I mean I know there's black on black crime, yes
But what happen to serve and protect
Innocent bystanders in bullet-proof vests
A simple license check turns into unrest

Is this civilization civil?
When innocent unarmed people
Are killed like they're not worth a nickel
On my face a tear tickles
We have issues

New York to Chicago
The black mans' job embargo
They seal us off like Wells Fargo
And make it hard yo

I'm already shunned by the greater society
And they still wanna kill me
Feel me

Some who read this have it good
Some of us who don't read this
Live in the Hood
Know your brothers are out there
Understood

Want doesn't mean nothing to you
Might mean a lot for a chosen few

MAN IN ALL RESPECT I KNOW WHERE YA FLYING
FROM I SIT HERE AT NO PEACE AS MY BRUTHAS AND SISTHA'S GO DOWN TO THE MAN IN BLUE WHOM SAID TO BE PROTECTION
NOW WE NEED PROTECTION FROM THEM
STRIPED OF PRIDE AND SO MANY FAMILY'S CRY ALOUD
TEARS MAKES RIVERS AND FEARS ROAM THE STREETS
HERE IN THE WINDY CITY OF CHI~TOWN I SEE IT DAILY
**** WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TOO
WHERE IS JUSTICE
