Racism Is Old Business In America

Blacks have been killed for centuries

By racist nincompoops. These days, racist cops

And other slimy creeps are caught on videos

Killing people like at the movies, except these deaths

Are real, very real. The blood is real. The suffering

Is real not imagined. The pain is excruciating

Our brothers and sisters are killed and buried

At the cemeteries. Greed is old business

In America. Discrimination is prevalent

Racism is not a new venture in America

Violence rules in this crazy and unfair society

But the days of silence and obedience are over

This is a different era, another time. Heaven is empty

And hell is full of criminals and haters that even Lucifer

Is disgusted by all of these nonsensical murders

Postmortem skin pigmentation does not matter

All organs look, smell and rot the same way

Something must be done now, right away

God needs to invent another place

Worse than hell to house the racist criminals

Racism is old business in America

That’s why hell is full of crooked and evil vandals

Corrupt politicians and racist rioters or invaders.
