Let it simmer and let it smolder.
What do we do when it all boils over?
Don’t make it burn, just go sit down.
They can kill us, but don’t burn the town.
Display your anger, respectfully.
Remember to protest, peacefully.
There’s a time and a place for everything.
The white man wants us to march and sing.
That puppet in the White House is an Uncle Tom.
He wants peace from us and yet, he orders a bomb.
He’s got the Zionists fist shoved so far up his ass,
when he farts, Netanyahu can smell his gas.
If his girls were murdered, would peace still reign?
What do you think? Is a white man sane?
They play games with us because they can.
There are some who say that this is all a plan.
So, if indeed it’s true that we are mere pawns,
over our genocide, whites can’t hide their yawns.
They can only claim ignorance for just so long.
Then they have to realize what’s right and what’s wrong.
To keep blaming what they do on shadows in the night,
is to absolve them for not doing what is right.

I have had about all I can stand from people stating that the protestors should have used more restraint. When are the cops going to act with restraint and stop killing Black people? When is enough, enough? When we’re all dead? I don’t give a goddamn about a fucking business. I don’t care if its Pizza Hut, Kamikaze Nail Salon, Frank’s Toupees or a goddamn grocery store. None of that shit matters because the only reasoning behind protecting those businesses is to keep CAPITALISM up and running. Gotta have those stores open for Black Friday specials. Fuck that an unarmed Black teenager is dead; killed by a racist cop. It’s ALL about priorities. To hell with that shit! Stores are insured and can be rebuilt, a life taken, cannot! Michael Brown is dead and buried. Insurance can’t bring him back to life.
When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all the others that peacefully marched and protested did everything ‘right’, what did it get them? Eh? High powered water hoses, dogs, jail, beatings and who did that? Whites did! But now, Black people are demonized because of some burnt out stores??!!!! Demonization of that shit should have started long ago, when whites were tearing unholy hell out of Black peaceful protestors. But now, let’s get all put out over some burned buildings because after all, the dead teenager was just Black!
