    Dead To Rights
    ###########

    They’re scared to death of the Black man.
    Driven by the worrisome knowledge of
    what he is inherently armed with.

    Unarmed black man my @ss!
    Unarmed black men,
    don’t last.

    Malcolm advised us to not be hoodwinked.
    For overt racism is a means to an end.
    Your end and mine.

    Unarmed black man my @ss!
    Unarmed black men,
    don’t last.

    That’s because,
    they have you dead to rights
    we’ve never had in the first place.

    Unarmed black man my @ss!
    Unarmed black men,
    don’t last.

    Oh, say can you see
    by the dawn’s early light

    Unarmed black man my @ss!
    Unarmed black men,
    don’t last.
