Seperate/Unequal!

Seperate/Unequal!

20 sweet innocent babies are dead!
wasn’t nothing they did or
said!
wasn’t so long ago they was
born!
and just like that their gone!
and a nation cries and mourn!
and a nation cries and mourn!

All well and good,understood,

but….

who cries for the children of
color
who die in da hood?

who cries for the children of
color
who die in da hood?

how many and where are the 
politicans,media,celebs,

when

one of our babies in da hood
are shot dead?

when

one of our babies in da hood
are shot dead?

not a word is heard or
politician calling the press
to a conference expressing
distress about not 20 but many,
many,many,many,many,
hundreds,thousands of our
innocent black & brown
precious best no longer around
cause their little bodies have
been laid to rest in da ground!

their little bodies have been laid
to rest in da ground!

why the media and notables so
vocal about 20 and not a word
is said about many,many,many,
many?

the silence cries out loud!

“There seems to be a double
standard around!!”

“There seems to be a double
standard around!!”
