A look at how journalists in the mainstream media, as of late, have been delivering shoddy news in 5
The Zimmerman trial verdict has brought along with it all manner of commentary on issues of racially motivated violence in our country today. Some of the best and brightest minds from every avenue of expression are coming forward to lend their voices against the grave injustices committed against people of color in recent months. Up-and-coming emcee and activist Jasiri-X has been an outspoken critic of events surrounding Trayvon Martin’s murder since it happened, taking to YouTube and various other digital outlets to express his disdain and outrage against the American judicial system. His most recent piece, “Imagine If Trayvon Killed Zimmerman”, requires little in the way of introduction.
Do you wanna know how messed up the system is?
Imagine if Trayvon killed George Zimmerman
You think Trayvon would have been found innocent?
He would have faced a lifetime of imprisonment
See Stand Your Ground only works if you’re a citizen
So that right isn’t his only whites benefit
We are not legitimate that fact is definitive
Don’t believe ask Marissa Alexander if it is
To protect herself in her own home with her kids
Fired a warning shot she got a twenty-year sentencing
Now that’s ridiculous but all Blacks are witnesses
Of the hatred in this nation that’s run by hypocrites
Would the NRA have backed Trayvon?
Would Fox News tell white folks if he gets off, stay calm?
We know the truth so I won’t go no further
Cause Trayvon was found guilty of his own murder
