White people don't like Black people in America, they don't want us here, they show us and tell us every damn day, and that's the bottom line. They didn't force the ancestors here to be the best of friends, they were forced to be unpaid laborers. We want to be included, they say Fuck you!!!! Not gonna happen!!!!! So they're incarcerating us and killing us and equating us with every beast on the planet. 500 years and counting...... The question should be: Who is really the BEAST??????
