I see something wrong with the fact that

From the time we are young we are instealed with our parents view toward the police

From the time we are young we know how the police view us 

If your white you have nothing to fear or so thats what I hear but,

If your black you have to fear cause' you never know what kind of cop you will get

I'm not saying all cops are bad, but everytime another one of us get's gunned down there seems to be much of the blame placed back on the victim or the community on which the are from.

He stole some cigarettes so is that a reason to die

He raised his hands in the sign of surrendering

but, he was gunned down and left on the road like road kill.

He was killed by the police. He was left on the street by the police. 

 But it's the victim's fault, and the community he comes from.

I see something wrong with that!
