That Whistling Sound

That Whistling Sound



Our HOODIES are ON

Our BLACK HANDS are UP

BLACK MAN DOWN

Oh God, what was that awful whistling sound

Why is that Black man now LYING DEAD down ON THE GROUND

ALL THAT WAS HEARD WAS that whistling BULLET SOUND



Our HOODIES are on

Our BLACK HANDS are UP

Another BLACK MAN shot DOWN

You were supposed to protect and serve

Did that BLACKMAN now DEAD ON THE GROUND

Get what you thought he deserved

In America BLACK JUSTICE has taken a swerve

All these black bodies to shatter our nerves



Our HOODIES are on

Our BLACK HANDS UP

Black men die with their hands up or down

Whistling bullets at a white racist’s command

BLACKMAN LYING DEAD WITH his ebony face, faced DOWN

His Black mother with only the ground to pound

I guess that dead brother should have left this town at sundown







AMERICA WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE

Black HANDS UP OR DOWN

Those HOODIES DOWN OR UP

WHEN racist POLICE SHOOT

ALL IS MOOT

Whistling bullets in a killing stream

All I can hear now is those black mother’s screams

You see that BLACK MAN IS STILL DOWN

ON THAT BLOOD SOAKED GROUND

Why after 400 years after the White Lion’s arrival

Is justice for black men yet to be found?



AMERICA WHEN WILL IT BE THE TIME WHEN INJUSTICE doesn’t kill BLACK MEN WITH HANDS UP AND HOODIES DOWN?
