Named Provocation but Never Chose to Provoke Just Defend......

Author:

As a people our intent is not to invite or provoke, the wrath of people with bad intentions especially those with the badge of authority.

Provocation not necessary, Beast unleashed

Excuses are given for behavior, admission is the way for redemption.

Before the Premier

News clips of police choking dudes out, releasing the dogs,
Devouring children like hogs.

Wake up we been sleeping long enough!

Wake up we been sleeping long enough!

Wake up we been sleeping long enough!

Feeling Powerless, abuse of authority at the highest

I don't want to provoke you.
The biggest task is trying not to provoke our lord, incurring HIS wrath.
Authority at high appointed levels are being abused and the feeling is that we are powerless.

Provocation: I aint trying to provoke you

Provocation:
I aint trying to provoke you.
Pulling me over while walking
or driving
while black.
I thought it was hard to tell.
Asking me
"Why are you nervous? "
I'm like,
People been dying!
Today!
I'm trying to live.
When I was younger you were slower to pull the trigger,
Allowing me to live.
Now that I'm older,
You seem quicker to empty a whole clip. Leaving people dead in the street.
You shouldn't let fear,
make you pull the heat.
Please let that be. The last resort.
Technology gives us weapons to stun and paralyze,
When will we realize.
Killing is population control, and we are the pest.
Manipulation of our minds.
A psychological gest.
To those type of officers,
quick to shoot,
sending souls of our youth, on there final destination home.
We are forced to ring the alarm.
Seems like the prevailing intent is soley to harm.
Enforcing rules on" W.E." being trapped like cattle.
Raised to feed your "childrawn" .
Evil stare in your eyes with your weapons drawn.
Cocked and ready.

The Lives We Lead Are Related

The lives we lead are related.
The deeds we do can be deflated.
If ill intentions are pre-meditated
Experiences through life possibly devastated.
Character of good men Desecrated
Human race delegated
Specialist classed " Class or Classless "
Judgement Regardless.
We wont mix
Beliefs will persist
Tearing us apart.
Cause division is the dominant part.

These Occurrences are more frequent or nah?

Officer Please.....

Provocation, " I don't want to provoke you. "

I wont provoke you!
Provocation.
Maybe you"ll relate to.
I "REFUSE!" to
"Provoke" You.
Evils' been hidin', Surfacing through.
Your deliberately chosen rivals.
By default,
You choose men the same as me,
In appearance.
So ! You telling me!
You look like me, You destined to be?
Stopped! Shot! and left dead in the street.
That's alarming to me.
Needs to be alarming to you.
Is it really a soldier is a soldier he chose,
And this is the destiny that arose.
Compassion would say no,
Cold hearts may say that's on him
until it is at thier front door and it will show
That Brown skin does not mean Criminal
Black skin does not imply evil.
White skin does not mean innocent and docile either.
Take a breath the one you hate may be the one who will relieve ya.

Shouldn't let fear make you pull the heat. Let that be. The last resort. Technology gives us weapons to stun and paralyze, When will we realize.

Provoked
Innocent victim choked
Another sodomized by billy club.
Brown like me.
Profiled for racial identity.
Now, rubber bullets puncturing my flesh.
No, weapons so I detest.
I'm not political,
Not defiant when I write.
I instigate none,
You are suggesting I carry guns.
But I don't own one.
I stay reliant.
Idols are made.
Faith is broken if the day.
Go back when hate,
The hatred of men was fighting to prevail.
Love won the spotlight.
For a while now police bringing back their dragon sickness.
Covetous of power spirit.
Must eliminate all rivals.

Provoke you Nah! Just Defend!

Remember stuff like this R.I.P. Young one

RIP young one

RIP young one

Pre and Post Viewing

movie viewing crowd were in a positive mood and the movie was a story of negatives and positives just as life presents.

"Straight Outa Compton" beginning and ending

Prepare!
Straight Outta Compton!
News clips of police choking dudes out, releasing the dogs,
Devouring children like hogs.
Somebody is stirring up some shyt.
Police acting a fool and the movie will blast the term " FUCK THE POLICE "
Instigation, Live Nation,
Preparation,
Mass murder skits from Marshal law military tactics.
Post viewing the movie.
Straight Outta Compton.
Mellow crowds, throw back from my time.
Memories of the riots.
Present day brutality.
Are the times that different?
More widespread.
Not just in Compton.
The biggest gang in the city.
Propaganda failed in this instance.
Nice try, Puppet master.
Attempts to insight discord.
So it could be said the movie caused a riot.
Didn't work.
But you still look like the beast that you are.
Martin Luther King Jr. went non-violent.
To show your violent behavior and that movement exposed the real culprit.
The real violence within your methods to control the masses.
Releasing dogs, shooting at innocent bystanders.
Killing unarmed men!
Justified? NO!
Too bad you can never prove your violent behavior justified.
Even though the judge always acquits, it is abuse of authority across the board.
Power, riches, and control is what you adore.
Life, Truly means more.
Mass media skits that implore.
Instigating public fits.
Try to blame it on gangsta hits.
But brotherhood and the voice of the inner city has transcended.
Now we relate to the exposure but nothing has ended.

We do have rights! RIGHT?
