    Statistics

    So many dead or
    Locked away.
    So many of the remainder
    Won't fly straight.

    It's hard to explain
    The feeling I get when

    I take a look at the statistics.

    Aids is epidemic
    And crack is still around.
    So many are confident
    That we are lost- won't be found.
    Black on black crime a constant,
    And my peers idolize those who speak non-sense.

    Here in our communities is the evidence-
    Yes they mis-represent us in the statistics
    But a blind man could see the existence
    And the extent of our problems in this
    World, its

    hard enough being a person-
    But being black too?
    What about black and poor…
    Overwhelming statistics say that
    Your chance of being a statistic
    Is highly likely.

    “Statistically speaking.” ​
