    Anytime you get a lot of organizism’s
    Crowded into a small area, with adverse situations.
    You tend to get disease, of the mind, body and sprit.

    Killing off some of the crowd.

    Building high rise living and not providing
    Adequate services and facilities definitely fit
    This choice of elimination of people.

    Taking away job possibilities, leaving no
    Hope for the crowd does the same thing.

    Go out of your element.

    Come back with information and new ideas everyday.
    So you stay wise and healthy in every way.

    Now we are seen as lazy and won’t do.

    They are talking about us
    When they say the jobs we won’t do.

    The truth is they don’t offer.
    No summer jobs for our kids.
    Let them fend for themselves.
    No one cares if we live.

    They can’t work in the sun,
    They love it to death.

    But that is the fallacy
    If the did they would be killing themselves.

    So they flood the country
    With another brown skin.

    Now they are saying there are too many of them here.

    They feel they don’t need them like they did to our kin.
    As long as you’re not wanting.
    To improve on your plight.
    No problems just don’t ask me for your rights.

    Send them back south, we sent many other brown skins
    We used to a place called Haiti.

    Yes we used you.
    You wised up to me. So what you gone do?

    Get in my face.
    Try a riot race.

    On your back I am strong.
    I have guns to put you down
    I have military powers to take your life,
    Laws and ways established.
    I can seize your throne.

    In your history you were strong.
    You had been given the wealth.
    I gathered with other nations
    Using your people we use you to gather for our selves.

    Do you like that diamond?

    It comes from the place
    Where they all belonged to you.
    They are taken from your people.

    A land where your fathers,
    Your forefathers were seized from
    And enslaved from their wealth.

    Now you’re trying to make payments,
    Not allowed in some stores
    For the color of your skin
    Proves those diamonds really should be yours.

    Africa is the only continent that has all that it needs.
    Divided up with London, China, Spain, and others of greed.

    See the criminals didn’t happen overnight.
    They quit fighting each other formed
    A loose knit plan and decided the attack.
    America again leading the pack.

    You take the diamonds,
    You the oil,
    You the human black skin.

    We all can take some with us
    To prove we conquered them.

    Grab some of the lions,
    The monkeys, the elephants too.

    We will cage them like we do the human cargo
    And call it a zoo.

    So we let them crowd us together
    You know it's a death plan.
    There are vast amounts of country and we have no land

    Don’t allow me to focus,
    Keep me from forming a plan.

    Threaten us with terror,
    Threaten our woman,
    And kill off any leading black men.

    No lost! They aren’t like us
    They all have dark skin.

    Hodee you laid it out plain, just how much weight are victims supposed to be able to bear? Your words hit hard, but the truth usually does. Continue to tell it brotha.
