This Color

How come when a white looking Hispanic man kills a black boy it's all over the news,

When,

African American is killing African American.

Sometimes they are boys,

Six and seven!

 

This happens everyday to them

But as long as you don't go in there (ghetto)

You'll be safe.

 

So beware of my skin color,

Because what I wear is dangerous!

My body shines forth danger but,

If you get to know me I may be the coolest guy around.

But, because of this color I am targeted countinous...

...ly, in danger of my own life cause I'm the one who is dangerous?

But in fact, it is you who is okay with approuching everyone but us!
