The Other America

by Hussein

Blacks here live in places like N'awlins, B-more and Chiraq
where hard working  people have to watch their back

Because from both the cops and criminals we are under attack
and the courts will not cut us any slack
Our country is divided by an ethic, religious or political wall
in order to survive my people climb mts. that are Everest  tall
We live on a social-ecomonic isthmus  
Where crimes on us by both Whites and Blacks we witness
At best, for us the glass that hold life's joy is only half full
but, least we are no longer slaves or any of that bull
Unfortunately, the "silent majority" here just can't see
that we live in "the other America" - still yearning to be free
