RACIAL PROFILING


1.

Racial Profiling

Is “race as probable cause”

In some traffic stops.

2.

White man pick up truck

Driving through the hood at night

Here come the blue lights!

3.

Oops, he’s a cop, too!

When he tried to laugh it off

It wasn’t funny.

4.

He was a white man

Rolling through the hood at night

Near a known dope spot

5.

He was still lucky

‘Cause he had white male priv’lege

Cops listen to him

6.

Brothers go to jail

Even our brothers in blue

Cops have shot black cops

7.

White male, pick-up truck

Addiction strikes ev’ryone

Treat us equally.
