Fight! A Spoken Word Piece by @Young_Deuces #HandsUpDontShoot

Frustrated!
Frustrated at the actions of the people who's supposed to protect
Frustrated that right now my skin makes me a logical suspect
Frustrated that it's 2016 & there's still white people who will view me as a threat
Frustrated that it can be me, my dad, my brother or my mother fucking seed that is next
And please I apologize of the vulgar nature of my words
But I'm frustrated at the fact this injustice still occurs
I'm frustrated at the blind eye, the back and forth on my timeline
I'm frustrated that we yelling but still our voices never heard
Ignored by the system who says me as a person has rights too
But how can you fight for a system when the system rather fight you
Ignored by the media who sees first hand where the verdict may fall
And instead of speaking with common decency they say "well the video doesn't tell it all"
Ignored by the cops aka worlds most dangerous crew
Cause right now the crips don't look like the worlds most dangerous blue
Me being a black man, gives me more reason to be scared to get slained by the blue
They say follow the guidelines and you'll be safe I say shiiiiiitttttttt
How can I follow the guidelines when you keep changing the rules
They scream...Hands up, I'm like nope don't wanna get gunned down
I can't have a bag of skittles without getting gunned down
I can't have a hair brush in my pocket, if you ask me for my ID, I can't reach for my wallet
I can't sell my mixtape, I can't sell a cCig, wait
I can't sleep I can't breathe I can't be in my church or my crib
I can't be face down in the pavement with 2 cops on my back holding my hands, I can't live!
Grimey!
Nah I ain't talking NORE I'm talking police
Who has it in they mind it's open season to in us down in these streets
Grimey
Nah I ain't takin Nore, I'm talking the news
Who always got an excuse for them boys †in blue
Grimey
Is my own people going against my own people when all we need is unity
My own people saying negative comments about my own people fighting for this community
Grimey
Is denouncing your race just because your shade made differ
Cause in they eyes, light medium or dark we all still niggaz
Help
No matter your race now is the time to speak
All lives matter yes, but right now black lives is catching the heat
The police need help, help w/ training or maybe a better course
So they can learn the gun is not your first option and should be the last resort
Help,
Because the tv gone paint us as the villains
Say our reaction came w/no cause to distract the world from the killings
And I know You hearing our cries for help but instead of responding back
You just sit and watch and wait for all of this to just pass
But think, if you just stand up and say "This must stop, we gotta do better"
We can stop the downpour and Prepare for the weather
Think of the impact, if the police spoke to us all
And said "those policed failed to do there job and will be punished by law
Think if a judge took a stance and said enough is enough
And didn't give light sentences only ones that was tough
Think of right now, and the trends that we see
And how the law may say it now but it's clear we ain't free
Think fight
Not with guns, but with a voice that's clear speak
Think fight
Not with your hands but To wake people who is sleep
Think fight!
Not the physical but for the right to live free
Think fight
I'll fight for you,so come and fight with me
