when
“thug”
meets
“racist”
stand your ground wins
when
a scared black boy
meets
a scared white man
stand your ground wins
but nobody wants to talk about it,
they want to bury their heads in the sand
until the next STAND YOUR GROUND WINS.
just like in
the
mass gun shootings
nobody wants to talk about it
then
i
heard
someone
blame the media
and the way they cover these events.
cry
America
cry
cry
America
cry
