You know, there’s something to be said

When gay rights outweigh the black man’s

Now let’s be clear

I’m all for love winning

But don’t forget the other battle we’re in

Love is a beautiful thing

Sadly, love isn’t prevailing

Not when it comes to the color of our skin

People are too easily distracted

Can’t figure out which issue to handle

Churches being shot up

Burned to the ground

Shouldn’t we at least be safe

In God’s house

We can’t walk down the street

With skittles in our hand

We can’t breathe

We can’t make a stand

We are not free

And truth be told, barely legal

I can’t understand 

Why after all these years

This issue is still around

So much hatred

Violence, retaliation

All the while no one sees

That this method solves nothing.
