I had a man point out to me
that cops kill whites by twice as much.
“Twice as many light skinned guys
die by bullets that cops fired.
Blue Lives Matter! Black Lives a lie!
They just need to willingly comply.
Comply with commands of the P.D.
and things will end serenely.”
I said, “Say what!? You out your mind!
You think cops are color blind?
Oh my goodness! Oh. My. God!
In what country were you born?”
Got five times more whites than blacks
in USA, THAT’S cold hard fact,
yet though out of hundred
whites enumerate sixty-two
(excluding Latinx, true)
and AA’s are just twelve
Blue Lives end black is runner up.
Got a bag of M and M’s?
In bowl put sixty-two orange ones in.
Orange M and M’s to represent
the majority white race.
Now add twelve of brown shell,
(figure out which ones those tell.)
Throw in ten green for Hispanic friends
for Asians throw yellow five
(I’m not a very subtle guy!)
one red Native American
ten blue who are of mixed skin.
Have one hundred in our bowl
represent our country whole.
Mix the bowl up good and well
close your eyes and ten expel.
Statistics state likelihood
six orange ones grabbed and just one brown.
Six to one, let’s call it five,
yet only twice white boys by cops die?
Man thinks his case exonerates
our Blue Lives friends
and that I debase.
I do not debase
nor hold in contempt
the PO-PO Blue
The cops out there who’re fighting hard
to do the job Protect and Serve,
but claiming that USA’s post racist
simply has zero basis.
Case clearly shows cops do shoot
Africans Americans even when not in pursuit
far more often the stats scream
than white dudes acting serene.
I know we got Blue Guys
who with folks of color empathize.
I know there’s more than simple math,
but that dude’s argument’s simpleton.
