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...

HOOK

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
