How The World Sees A Man

Location

There's two people

Living in the same neighborhood

One most likely to succeed than the other

One most likely to fail  based off their color

Just Statistics and stereotypes

 

No matter how far you run or hide

like a stray bullet it will always find

That innocent one

That innocent son discriminated

Constantly stated

As  a disgrace to his own race

 

If he who wore baggy jeans or nice a suit

How far are their opinions from the root

How far from the truth of the real man

In this world we still seem to ban

A person based off their skin color

 

We fail to remember our Civil Rights activist

We must be Civil Rights hypocrites?

We are  if we keep on with the statistics

We cannot go one like this

We may never know who that man really is
