Or does it even matter
Black lives shattered
Marches, candles, and protest
still, Black lives
Black lives are still Gold
For someone to make a profit in the ghetto a Black life has to matter
Whether shot down, or believe it or not, a Cap and Gown.
Black youth, please realize : an Apple phone, MK, Gucci dont’ matter
and True Religion anit yo father
an adults veins full of herion
kids bellies full of hunger pains
yet Black lives lost for profit
Black lives bought and sold
Black live worth more than Gold
Or does it matter?
This story has never been told
Black lives bartered and sold
Slavery is over sold you’ve been told
yet if your mind is in shackles
Then you’re a slave you don’t even know it.
