    To all the sympathizers that say they
    understand
    wanna stand next to the man
    next to the man who's standing
    next to the struggling blak man, woman,
    and children
    I say you will never understand
    until you
    get pulled over because you are
    followed around a store because you are
    be asked "can I feel you hair" or "does
    your color rub off" because you are
    be denied a job because you are
    be stereotyped as a criminal because
    you are male, young, and
    have to work twice as hard to avoid hearing
    twice the **** because you are
    you and your friends are labeled a gang because you
    are
    gunned down in the streets because you fit
    the description of someone who is
    told to stop complaining about the past because you are
    because you are....
    because you are....you are...
    black/African American
    and until you are ready to give
    up your privilege don't sympathize with me.
