The black color of your skin
The Darker shade of races will be harder to beat the cases of injustice and hard not to be judged by new places
From being with family then walking down the street
Seeing the eyes of cameras
The minds of developing computers
They all assume that they are doomed
So they put impossible barriers or “assume” the worse of our actions
So they come like hungry pack of dogs
Not realizing the hurt, and problems they cause
The American Dream might seem amazing
But in the eyes of black race
America is blazing with hate and filled with people who discriminate
People like us asks:
Do we try to change it?
Do we all wanna make it?
Does race matter?
Most of us say no
But for the individuals that agree
All we can do is hope
