    Wasn't it the majority of inmates who said;
    "The Black Man is being PERSECUTED AND VIOLATED
    slated for eradication
    while some of us still be
    praising this nation"

    ****

    are we truly FREE

    are your freedoms wrapped up in selfish desires
    of wealth and fame that you can't claim
    ...causing you not to remember your bruthaz name

    THAT'S A SHAME

    Why is the majority of inmates BLACK?
    hmmm!!!

    is it coz the system is against US?
    does racism and a JUST'US system prevent US
    {from coming correct?}

    o'kay...o'kay.

    even if you account for those {five percent}
    who are innocent
    what about those {ninety-five percent}
    that aren't

    let's talk about that

    is the remaining
    ninety-five percent
    guilty? or innocent?
    hmmm...
    let's ask that question again

    Why is the majority of those incarcerated BLACK?

    We teach our kids:
    "take responsibility for all you do"
    is that true
    do we own our actions
    or, are we reacting
    to an unjust system
    when we're breaking
    and entering
    ...killing our children
    with crack cocaine
    and all that stuff
    that others define us {by}

    Why are WE the majority on the yard

    is it coz
    WE didn't kill that brutha
    ova another drug deal gone bad

    is it coz
    HE didn't rob the hood store
    or shoot the neighbor whore
    who gave him AIDS

    is it coz
    HE didn't pop his lady's eye
    then LIE to the man 'bout WHY
    he had to take out his dawg
    whom he found in his bed
    at three in the A.M.
    ****

    Why are my bruthaz
    numbers
    so high
    behind enemy walls

    is it because they were
    framed?
    set up?
    phucked up?
    were they the product of a conspiracy
    or, self-serving opportunists
    seeking benjamins for free
    given a "go-to-jail-quick" card
    or "die if you're hard" opportunity
    they opted for the first
    ...gave in to the man
    ****

    YES...
    it were the inmates
    who proclaimed
    "The Black Man is being VIOLATED
    on the verge of extinction
    coz they be constantly relinquishing
    their right to rule.
    in favor of those who choose
    to VIOLATE US."

    is that ME?
