A gunshot in my own house - Oakland
One life lost, damn
Malaysian air crash - a tragedy
Two hundred lives lost, i’m sorry
Attack of September 11th
Thousands of lives lost
Where is our Humanity?
The Khmer Rouge - My own ancestral country
Millions of lives lost
forever written in our history
So we come to this conclusion that humans will NEVER change
That our purpose is to only kill each other and Submerge in our own pleasures
that we don’t know nothin’ bout peace and being SANE
What a fucking stereotype.
It’s like saying you hate one race for the mistakes of a few
Like you hate a nigga from the hood, just cos he’s wearing a jankyass jacket and holding a worthless bag of skittles
So when you say you lost faith in humanity
When you choose to be-little humans
I feel sorry for you.
You choose to judge and stereotype us Humans as one disgraceful entity
You decide to focus on the negatives of history
and fail to see that not everyone is like this -
There are actual people on this earth who want to make this world a better place
for their children, for younger generations, to change the political stereotypes we live with EVERY day.
Did you forget about our founding fathers? the boston tea party?
peace movement in Berkeley?
Our civil war for freedom, fight for integration?
how we sat in the back of a bus because we will never let anyone tell us what we can’t do
WE WILL NEVER LET ANYONE TELL US WHAT WE CAN’T DO
so when you say you lost faith in humanity
You better change your fucking perspective.
man we’re beautiful
from our eyes to our feet
our messed up haircuts to the way we speak
the words we spit, to our endless friendships
We got minds with no limits,
the only thing stopping us is the mindset of I CAN’T do this
our life does have meaning.
we’re all here for a purpose
so when you say you lost faith in your own humanity
Don’t give up.
