I don’t wanna be rich, I just want enough to provide
For my family and every person that’s stuck to my side
I’m wondering why, shit I’ve had enough of the lies
None of it feels real anymore, its just a mirage
Just a mirage, what’s love if it doesn’t last an eternity
And what’s peace if they contemplating on burning me
And what’s the purpose of living life in a struggle
Making mistakes, tryna make em right if my child doesn’t learn from me


Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

Ain’t much I can do but I do what I can
But I’m not a fool theres no need to pretend
Just because you got yourself in some shit
It doesn’t mean I have to come deal with it
You handle your own when you become a man
And become a man when you handle your own
