    This is one "backwards" ***
    KKKountry claiming the CONstitution
    is the solution for legal prosecution?
    When the amendments precede the commandments
    I really need to look at the system
    under a scope with 1200 High resolution
    Amerikkkans protects cats more than poor blacks
    We been Rea-gunned, Sho-gunned, and given guns
    shown that violence is "How the WEST (America)
    was won" denounce violence yet stay in silence
    when police kill people daily (especially us!)
    White folks hate black people yet still tanning
    getting surgically full lips to look like Naomi Campbell
    and not Stockard Channing...We been overcoming since
    Martin and still underneath the ship drowning in
    slave screams and ******** / this is one
    backwards as KKKountry professing that Saddam is a
    terrorist when George Bush is the one who's really
    scaring us (but ain't nobody trying to kill him)
    won an election on barrier erections and sections
    of black folks were met with anti-democracy interjections/
    unemployment is at an all time low (ha) yet hunger is at an
    all time high and no one seems to see the lies /
    we screaming black nationalism but Robert is selling
    out black television, what is really going on?
    B.E.T is O.U.T cause Tavis' firing has prevented people
    from smiling...Abe lincoln's been dubbed the "man who freed
    the slaves" the one who gave us free / then why is Mumia
    still in the penitentiary / and why are we still professing
    that as the true history? How honest can Abe be when
    he intended to keep us in this misery? /
    This is one backwards *** KKKOuntry.

    true dat

    they say "one nation, under God"
    but where is God inside this KKKountry?

    out to lunch? See, this was misconstrued
    to be Utopia society...but didn't they use
    another nation to have the things thay have today?
    Didn't they kill the inhabitants of this land and say
    this was their territory now, their story,
    their blood and sweat and tears, their glory?
    Seems to me they got it backwards, if we only all could see
    their own 'Declaration' could allow us all to be free
    we have the strength, the determination and the heart - that's the key
    respect Blakverb 4 madd kickin tha real for this new century....
