Profile of Young Black Men
Young black men in the U.S.A.
Are profiled by society,
Just because they are born that way.
It always was, always will be.
Young black men commit lots of crime.
Lots of young black men go to jail.
This never changes over time.
Why does society still fail
To put this problem on the mend?
This nation's gotten stuck on race.
Profiling is means to no end,
Reminding what young black men face.
The profiling of young black men
Always will be game in the skin.
