Reality realized

These days we people is color by police are called gang bangers and thugs
But the real bangers and thugs are the ones dressed in various uniforms from head to toe
With guns licensed to kill
Rocking falsified mottos
But the real true meaning is to neglect and murder
And they do it for the thrill
And brag to their buddies like it's a game to be played
No action being taken
And we become the ones to blame
So It's our fault for defending ourselves from the evil called cops
This is all so crazy
It's no longer safe to roam our city streets and blocks
Without being labeled dangerous and suspicious
They hop out weapons drawn demanding I.D
And ask sir can you come with me
Just to question you on different crimes
They put you in the back and haul you to jail
With the illegitimate charge for being black
You cant deny what I'm saying because you know it's an evident fact
