Hoodies Down, Hands Up

HOODIES DOWN
BLACK HANDS UP
BLACK MAN DOWN
LYING DEAD ON THE GROUND
ALL THAT WAS HEARD WAS THE BULLETS SOUND 
 
HOODIES DOWN
BLACK HANDS UP
BLACK MAN DOWN
BLACKMAN DEAD ON THE GROUND 
BLACK JUSTICE NEVER FOUND
 
HOODIES DOWN
BLACK HANDS UP
BLACKMAN LYING DEAD WITH HIS HANDS DOWN
BLACK MOTHER CRYING BECAUSE OF ANOTHER BLACKMAN DYING
 
AMERICA WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
HANDS UP OR DOWN
HOODIES DOWN OR UP
WHEN POLICE SHOOT
IN THE END, ALL IS MOOT
THAT BLACK MAN IS STILL DOWN
LYING FACE DOWN ON THAT BLOOD SOAKED GROUND 
 
AMERICA WHEN WILL IT BE THE TIME WHEN INJUSTICE KILLS ONLY BLACK MEN WITH HANDS UP AND HOODIES DOWN?
