    Default Self-Defense (From Then Till Now beat)

    "There is nothing in our book, the Koran, that teaches us to suffer peacefully. Our religion teaches us to be intelligent. Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery."

    These punk police patrol ghetto street corners week-by-week
    Picking on the handicapped, elderly, mentally weak
    Then when a crime is committed by the young Black youth
    There's cause to pull out guns to protect a white man's loot
    It ain't shit but truth
    You have to understand Assata Shakur and everything she went through
    Just to gain freedom after police brutality
    Back when she was locked up it wasn't shit but myth and fantasy
    Malcolm was dead, Martin was buried in his grave
    You had Black folks on TV playin' like NBC's slaves
    Earned the same wages, fated to stay on the same pages
    Layed on God's plane with nothin' to show but release papers
    I might live in the suburbs, but the shit stay close to my heart
    American Apartheid, with our Mandelas putting tracks in their arms
    We need to start believing we can solve these problems
    If a cop puts his hand on you, ain't shit to do but stop him

    HOOK: Blurtin' slurs, the n-word becomes the norm
    Staying on the business end of service forty-fours
    Officers Krupke and Fuhrman keepin' Blacks in they places
    We in the Dark Ages, same looks on our faces

    Everything that you ever seen on TV is played outta proportion
    Minorities in the 'hood want peace, but violence comes often
    How come you never saw an officer comfort Craig Davis' family
    Or how come cops are watchin' Hip-Hop artists down in Miami?
    For the same reasons Rodney King was pulled over and beat him
    The same reason Amadou Diallo was hit 40 times with multiple heaters
    Our world is still racist, it's about damn time to face it
    The fact is that most of the media is tryin' to erase this
    And we're getting played with, squad cars are the new slave ships
    Tryin' to remember everything before we got maced with newspapers
    Left-wing broadcast journalism
    Good ol' boy, Ted Nugent, Bill O'Reilly criticism
    So who the fuck are you to judge us?
    I trust God, and everyone else ain't worth the fuss
    So we never bust, but if you put your hands on us
    It's to the cemetary with a pine casket and fresh tux

    HOOK

    Global economy designed for minorities to fall on they faces
    Name a Black CEO who isn't involved with entertainment
    And is still on the Fortune 500
    Most of the best people around are still hunted
    Arrested, beaten into submission and confession
    The source of brutal racist manifestation
    I'm sorry if I sound pedantic, but I can't let this run rampant
    While I still have sound body and mind to stand against it
    My defense was that not all cops are racist
    Until the suburban police started hoverin' worse places
    Because a white man was mugged, murdered on the wrong side of town
    So now you got them runnin' every African-American youth down
    Takin' him in to be questioned for weapons posession
    And their mothers don't see them again until the weekend
    Y'all might think I'm a conspiracy theorist, a paranoid kiddo
    Go say that shit to Amadou Diallo's widow...

    It seems to contain its own misery. The first verse seemed to be abit depressed. The second gained its own step on real issues (started from the first verse) the third seemed to extend the knowledge but recalled info from the second verse. And it had its own flow. Nice verse

    Peace
