America…

land of the greed,

home of the hate.

 

America…

What set you claim?

Church or State?

 

America…

Where they dehumanized black lives

Where the confederates lost the war and still let their flags fly

 

America…

You know the place where black life was hung

Where Freedom never rung

 

America…

Where Equal Rights and Justice never come

Where a Democratic Society supposedly begun

 

America…

I’m from where the beef is inevitable

History’s unforgettable

 

Hatred in abundance, you know the place well

Where the right wing extremists and the bigots dwell

 

America…

Where White is the new nigger; go figure

I’m from where they don’t want you to know the true definition of nigger

 

America…

Where they removed “anyone who exhibits ignorant behavior” as the definition of nigger

I’m from where they rewrote the dictionary to state any member of a dark-skinned race is a nigger

 

America…

Where they were offended cause the President said nigger

Where they took no offense in calling the President nigger

 

America…

Where the people are at odds again

At each other’s throats for the color of ones skin

At each other’s throats cause a him loves a him

 

America…

Where the justice system is the flakiest

And niggers been praying to God so long they Atheists

 

America…

I’m from where the good Christians gathered,

to see Black Life hanging from a tree

I’m from where they kidnapped and sold people that look like me

I’m from where Black Lives were burned alive, hacked to death, molested for all to see

 

America…

I’m from where they hash tag #BlackLivesMatter and argue all day

Who’s the real terrorist the Crooked Cops, the Government, or the KKK?

 

From Willie Lynch to Jim Crow they whitewashed America

From slavery to the drug trade, illegal business controls America

 

America…

The land of opportunity, home of the statue of liberty

 

America…

The place where immigrants migrated in search of equal rights and justice for all, religious freedom, and liberty

 

America…

The beautiful with an ugly history
