All Things Overlooked

It's not rocket science
We can just take a look
At the recurring acts of violence
Kept out of history books
Brutality crimes been going on for so long
People bein killed simply cause they pigment is wrong
Throughout history my people have prevailed and been strong
Yet everyday a child loses their dad or their mom
Whether behind bars, or dead in a gutter
Tragedy slices through people's life like a knife slices through butter.
My black community
We refuse to be silenced
Regardless of the violence
It's a global movement, my people...
we've needed this.
