You Wonder Why

by BlackReign

When you drag me until I fall apart

now see right there is where it starts.

When I walk into a store, you stalk me 

looking for more than what is there.

No reason to stare.

You wonder why I want to stay high to escape what comes next.

Racial profiling, affirmative action disappearing acts.

No need to be angry, these are just the facts.

Corporate racism, verbal and physical assault 

against our men and women.

Sorry sir loan denied.

Another black man mysteriously died.

Any you wonder why.
