KILLING A MAN OR A WOMAN

When you have a gun and they don’t and you're a cop, it takes a certain kind of cowardice to squeeze the trigger to kill without provocation men and women it takes an ugly type of racism only prevalent in racist countries As citizens, we have to take their psychotic, abnormal behavior seriously Our Public Servants are paid and trained by us, taking our money, training, the benefits to keep us safe but somewhere within their dark psyches their humanity got brain washed They think dark people with their hands raised pose a danger not worthy of the benefit of doubt like they give whites fear engineered from an extreme, guilty Caucasian mentality they believe their culture gives them the right to kill the dark skins, even the innocent Extreme culture, extreme attitudes says it's OK to shoot 'them' first legal gates open to flood their evil with impunity leaving ordinary citizens doubting the veracity of authority that castigates the blameless judging them solely by skin color The yellow haired pudgy politician says, "kick ‘em, punch ‘em, throw ‘em out They don’t belong here!" This man hates immigrants these people’s only crime is their skin color and being born on the wrong side of the border The darker the color the more brutal the violence Police Chiefs who condone these acts of violence are wrong morally wrong to give police free rein to riot with impunity A country built on justice and freedom means little if the country is ruled by men with racist agendas tyrants don’t possess compassion, fairness or justice “It is for us and only us!”, they shout So it goes in the land of saintly pseudo beliefs, rigged elections, limited health benefits but big profits We suffer, they don’t They profit, we become debtors In the land of one-man one-vote, everybody is equal Democracy we fight for our rights, but we die for their profits Americans, we are, but knowing some are more American than others citizens today owe too much debt to companies and corporations Lord, will this tribulation ever end? The working man is always fighting for freedom and against oppression but still finds complete freedom elusive, in truth, the wheels of justice move by inches only Is this a chance for right-wing oppressors to show compassion? Compassion from Caucasians is nice but equality is better You get compassion from family, not right wing white oppressors This is your country Americans and they're taking it from you VOTE!!!
