The Truth

258

The number of black civilians killed by the police force last year

Was it justice or was it hate

The truth we will never hear

 

64

The number of officers who were killed on duty last year

Some argue it was less, others argue more

The truth we will never hear

 

304

The number of Republican votes the electoral college gave last year

Do they believe he will represent us fairly? Do they think he will do more?

The truth we will never hear

 

1

The number of people it takes to make a difference now

It starts with you or it starts with none

Shout the truth out loud
