REQUIEM FOR TRAVON MARTIN: I FEEL SO SICK

By Andre Austin

Zimmerman profiled Martin thought he was a thug

Stalked and followed him when there was no more sun

Travon wasn’t dangerous or high off of drugs

He was just coming home from 7-11 off of a candy run

Now white folks celebrate by shooting off fireworks and their guns

That’s what happened in my hood after the Jury’s verdict was read

That’s how White people claimed victory over a black child that’s dead

If it wasn’t about race then why no blacks on the jury

Because they didn’t want it to be hung

So now when see the hype of the black man fury

Can’t get no justice what we got was a pile of dung

It’s a shame our youth can’t walk to the store at dark

Without a creepy dude shooting them point blank rage in the heart

Would I be weak if I flooded some cries

But I’m too **** mad at the defense lawyer’s forked tongue lies

Jury Nullification because no blacks were picked

I’m so sad and I feel it up to hear and I’m so Sick

Just So Odd
by Willa

Cain't nobody say what's see'n to the eye.
Zimmerman not White he's brown, snapen snap - no lie.
His momma and his pops sing mexicali-phillpines,
Standin' at the guillotines hopen for the why.

White people convictin' white people; nobody sayin'
just walkin' in the streets, holdin' arms and prayin'.
We got a giant wid a cyclopean eye, reportin' heads
tellin us what we plain seein'. In spite of what is said,
I know betta; they ain't white -- the Zimmermans.

I feel total peace on this-----------------:angel1: and flow.

Is Zimmerman a Phillipines name? I know his mother is South American (not sure she's Mexican), but I thought his father was white?

Zimmerman =German-Jewish... The mother and father are either South American or, looks like Philipine islands, close to China. The name somewhere in the family tree. The next time you see them, what do you think?

Just to keep the flowin' goin'.
Roses are red violets are blue.
I like guitars and big drums too.
But not in this thread, cause we have to have peace in here. :flowers:
