What do you see? (Inspired by Erick Garner)

All across the nation people are searching for retaliation.

It's civil unrest and that we can attest-but it's not a test, it's a wave of change here in the west.

It's not just because he was black,
forget about the fact it was a sudden attack-
thrown down like a 350lb sack,
tell me here, did the police have his back?

He was a human being,
what were the police men seeing?

Did they think he was a beast?
About to disrupt the peace and feast?

He was a human being,
but what are we really seeing?
