Does The Sight of My Hair Make You STARE ... ???
If Your Answer Is Yeah Do You Think That's Fair ... ?

Do You Think I'm MUSLIM ... ?!?
Does It Make You Feel SCARED ... !?!
Does It Make It Worse If I Start To GLARE ... ?

Your Attitude's Are Simply RUDE ... !!!

Just Because of ... " TV News " ...
Or Because of TAINTED Views ...

Have You People Got NO CLUE ... ???
How I Look Is NOT Your Proof ... !!!
That I'm From The ... " TERROR School " ... !!!

Or A Man Who Carries TOOLS ...

Like An AXE But Some Use That ... !!!
Those Who Make RACIAL Attacks ... !!!

That's A FACT ... !!!
How'd You Feel About That ... ???

Those Are Words I WON'T Retract ... !!!!!

....... Anthony Walker ..... (RIP)

REMEMBER His Name ... !!!

Cos' His LAST Game Was Feeling PAIN ... !!!!!!!!!
Whilst The Blood Ran From His BRAIN ...................

Now His Fam' Must Take The Strain ... !!!!!!
Because of These SICK Racist Games ... !!!!!

These Are Times of WICKEDNESS ... !!!!!!
Because of Hair Or Style of Dress ... ???

Right Now We Are In A MESS ... !!!!!
This Is NOT A Driving Test ... !!!!!
Loss Of Life CANNOT Be Right ... !!!!!...
When It Comes To Petty FIGHTS ...

People Look WITHOUT Their Eyes ... !!!!!
Then Wonder Why Some Blacks Try ...
To Take From Them To Live Their Life ...

AXE ATTACKS On INNOCENT Blacks ...
May Well Result In More Attacks ...

That's NOT GOOD You DON'T WANT THAT ... !!!!!!
Blacks These Days May Just FIGHT BACK ... !?!?!

Go DEEP INSIDE Your INNER SELF ...

REJECT Your Pride ... !!!

Because This Goes Out To EVERYONE ... !!!!!!

White or Black And Yes Asian ...

" IMAGINE....... "

Walking Down A Street ...
With Your Girl And Your Baby ...
Then OH OH What Do You See ... ?

Some Young Blacks Across The Street ...
Then They Start To ... " Make Their Move "...

Here They Come Approaching YOU ... !!!
Do You Try To ... " Play It Cool " ...
When They Start To HURL ABUSE ... !!!
You Want To Go Before They BLOW ... !!!!!
But TOO LATE A Gun's Now Shown ... !!!
Then You See TWO Bullet Holes ... !!!

NOT In YOU But In The Heads of YES ... " These Two "...
Your Girl And Child ... Now This Leaves YOU ... !!!

When You Look For These Black Youth ...
They Walk Away LAUGHING At You ... !!!!!

You Want Them DEAD Oh YES It's TRUE ... !!!!!!

Am I Getting Through To You ... ???

RECOGNISE .......
This Is THE TRUTH ... !!!
These Are Things We Blacks Go Through ...

DON'T FORGET Young Stephen Lawrence ... !!!
All This HATRED Defines NONSENSE ... !!!!!

Anthony Walker Has Now GONE ...
LEAVING ALL OF HIS ... " LOVED Ones "... !!!

While These KILLERS Have FREEDOM ... ?!?!?

Do You Get The Point of This ...
RACISM Is DANGEROUS ... !!!!!!!!!

For ALL OF US NOT JUST Black Kids .... !!!!!!!
DON'T Presume And DON'T Pre - Judge ...

SHUN This ................................................................ HATRED ...............

Show MORE LOVE ... !!!!!

Do This Thing ... STOP THESE Killings ... !!!
STOP THIS NEEDLESS BLOOD SPILLING ... !!!!!

This Is All A Part of Life ...
SUFFERING And PAIN and STRIFE ...

Even YES These Racist Fights ...

But Ladies and Gents ...
Use Your COMMON SENSE ... !!!

Put This Question In Your Mind ...
When All's Said And Done .....

" Are These Things Right ? ? ? "......
