Disrespectfully nice

My skin color

Why must I be a target? 

Treating me like a criminal because of my skin color

That\'s funny because I thought I was human just like any other

What have I done wrong for me to put fear in your heart? 

I\'m a law abiding citizen too but we can\'t be told apart



The words of choice that I get first

\"You match the description of someone we\'re looking for\"

Damn really how does that work?

I just want to be looked at the same as everyone else

Is that too much to ask to leave the house with no fear of death?

I\'m just a man trying to live, provide for my family, keep them safe

Could the next traffic stop be the last breath that I take?
