This Is America

THIS IS AMERICA —

T arget – That is what you are. Doesn’t Matter what kind of person you are on in the inside.

H oodlum – Your savage looks and slang make you less of a human

I dentity – Is defined as the action or process of identifying someone or something or the fact of being identified. Identity stripped hundreds of years ago and they are still more layers being peeled.

S anity – It’s there. You have IT. Or do You?

I ntegrity – Is one of your strongest well-known characteristics. Well so I thought. Infamous is what you are. Apparently.

S oul – Can be taken from your flesh without you having a warning.

A nger – Yea we feel it too. To bad this feeling was obtained after what happened to you.

M urder – No, Massacre. Although it only occurs one at a time. The quanity within the time frame is dissemination.

E quality – For who? Exercise your rights…Pow. Speak Knowledge…Pow. Lead your People…Pow. Driving in a car…Pow. Following instructions and holding your hands up. Ha you guessed it…POW POW.

R apine – Your temple as been violated. You, your family, and community get no type of apology.

I nnocent – Until Proven Guilty this does not pertain to you. You, you are Guilty Until Proven Innocent.

C olor – This is obvious. Your pigmentation is the cause of your assassination. A feature that you can not control. A feature that you did not choose. But unfortunately since you are an offspring of color you can not have control of your life or…death.

A nother Hashtag – Another Victim, Another Statistic. And the despising part of it all is that this cycle will live on but those that are in the cycle won’t.
