America’s Favorite Snack

America’s favorite snack

black & innocent 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & a “menace”

 

America’s favorite snack

black & defenseless 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & in self defense 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & out numbered 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & in the penitentiary 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & a witness

 

America’s favorite snack

black with a court appointed 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & on welfare

 

America’s favorite snack

black & don’t know their rights 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & doing right 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & doing wrong

 

America’s favorite snack

black & grieving 

 

America’s favorite snack

black & breathing
