    I don’t offer
    EXCUSES
    For why I am {as I am}

    I’m a Black Man

    Victim of
    Prejudiced circumstance

    Racial profiling
    AIN’T NO EXCUSE
    It’s a reality
    Too many…in the system…USES
    And too many {hypocrites and} racist azzholes
    Refuse to acknowledge

    Neighborhood
    Drug infestation
    AIN’T NO EXCUSE
    It’s another example of
    The measures
    Some would go through
    To eliminate my
    People

    It’s scary
    The way they creep us
    Therefore, it’s a must
    For us to
    WAKE UP.

    The “Just’Us” system
    AIN’T NO EXCUSE
    It’s the
    Misuse and abuse
    Of power
    By would-be assailants
    Who assault us
    While administering
    His justice

    I don’t see through
    Ebony hued
    Imaginaries
    There’s TRUTH to my
    Reality

    Walk a mile in my shoes
    You’ll see

    Gonorrhea
    The Syphilis Experiments
    A I D S

    AIN’T NO EXCUSE

    Let the TRUTH
    See you through

    we have so many EXCUSES...that when we point out valid points, they've over looked.

    THANKS for reading, your $$RICHNE$$
