Race, Police & Justice: Voices from the Colgate Community

Hello Officer,

Right now our relationship is filled with ‘I’m not sure’s.

I usually have my confidence, you make me insecure.

You can take my breath away if we get too close.

I’m not scared of ghosts or anything…at the most,

just you and your relative who dresses like one.

Light one n*gga in a fire, hang one on a tree,

we all look the same to you are you coming for me?

Since I’m not sure when you might say ‘I’m not sure today,’

Miss me with the gunshots I’ll be sure to stay away.
