Hanging off trees and shit..some people have experiences that can't leave them...a racist has blinded me before...it's an experience I live with to this day..still ain't an angry black man but what irks me is people downplaying it
Of course my intentions we're not to downplay the plight & hideousness of such actions.
I was simply pointing out that you do not have to be black to feel or understand racism
Zimbabwe Farmers, Jews & Muslims....I'm not even trying to compare
For I am well aware of the harshness that black people have endured through racism.
I am of the stance of an injustice to humanity is an injustice to us all
I'm white and I have had the exact same situation with an elderly woman & a purse
I even said it in a rhyme I belive on some Killah Priest homage.
I'm simply appalled & amazed by the statements Lord Jamar has made that's all.
The fact that it is
2013 and Hip-Hop & racism are being discussed....
Even merged is what I find sad.
No offense was intended I assure you.
