America you lied
You told me
Slavery and racism
Wasn't supposed to take
Place in the present
But clearly we're still living
In the past
Where my melanin
Offensive enough for
A cop to pull me over
And kill me,when I didn't
Do anything,but nobody has the strength
To have my back,because
I am black,and it's fine because
Here in America a white cop
Is superior,and have more rights than me,
We are trapped
When we try to speak up
We get arrested,America you lied,because I remember you said freedom of assembly
And speech,was granted
Then why do we get punished for the rights you promised? Is it because my melanin is offensive,offensive enough for a job to be more eligible for a white guy and not me.I have a family
To feed and it's hard to feed them
But you wouldn't know America
Because it's been easy for you America .
You've been busy lately trying to “make America great again “.
All by yourself,you forgot About us just like old times and just like today.
This is not an “American dream”
Because you wake everyone on the
border with reality
Just remember,America you lied.
