Superb Magic

Greatest magicians
Came from America been here since it's exitence
All they did was paint a picture with everything good put in our vision
Like Obama poll position
Saying this makes up from when you hung dead on poles from lynches
Did a spell that made us believe we grab change and clinched
Filthy with hatred so we cleansed it
That's the general consensus
This hocuspocus
Like a black man as potus
Is posted
In our brain putting us out of focus
Pullin the rabbit out of a hat
While they pull a trigger in a black mans back
Innocent at that
Already contained
And it clear to see in the video frame
That wasn't your tazor committn a remedial slain
And justice system still isn't sane
So how much have we changed
How crooked is the frame
Still the same ammount below the poverty line
Go there you'll probably find
Out that it's drug infected
Same thing you'll find on a college campus but yet we the ones arrested
Dejected
Made to believe we're far from precious
Success is a game we are unworthy contestants
We're still ethicly bias
Change has come you'll be fool buy it
Pick a card any card
While they pick a nigga any nigga to incarserate
Now you can legally discriminate
As we know history indicates
He'll end back behind bars or carted away
Painting canvases with blood and street with white chalk image in a  
childs mind will stay
Lindsay lohan and Lebron dominate the press
Obama mentioning lebrons new address
But the Oscar Grant verdict has yet to be addressed
Wave the wand it's oblivious
We've been deluded
Yea we have made improvements
But there's millions of colors in prisons but a few thousand in a  
college instituition
Why are so many minorites locked up
I bet if you took half that number
Aganist Half the country that's dumber
To vote Bush back in in 2004
And add the others in poverty put through this astonishing horror
We may be out this meaningless war
If you think this country has reconstructed
Magic you've been struck with

    just a wonderfull true write, I'm not sure whether or not you should leave all those misspellings in there? You have a real way with words! Light & Love [ps you could add in where the only place there is for a minority to be garunteed a job is in the military blocking bullets for housing and healthcare]
