Emerging artist Entity performs his piece about racism

don’t try silence us we’ll deafen ya
never let oppression get the best of ya I’m tellin ya we’ll stand up rise up, still we rise, f*** this systematic racism a world of lies, the world divides, treated like its black or white, my hands are tied uplifted still feel trapped inside a captive mind
but I’m not here for just some monologue
ain’t no time for compromising
not just gonna walk it off
I’m here with my people outraged, angry, were in shock and awe
like 200 years ago well fight and mek the system fall

mi say you blind if you not listening
deaf if you not talkin
use my privelidge to speak silence ain’t no option
no we ain’t stoppin
we’re never stoppin
so I say
black is power
black is strength
black is unity
black is pride
black defends
black like you and me
black is might
black is beautiful
for you to see
black is us
black is here
black will never leave
black won’t ever leave
black will never leave

its pivitol privilege or it’s pityful ignorance
its funny the guilty are now the first to claim innocence

treated like I’m criminal innately
just because the colour of my skin they gon hate me
lately people say its just up in the states see your wrong there
Ireland can be racist even heard my former mates be
so I say
black is power
black is strength
black is unity
black is pride
black defends
black like you and me
black is might
black is beautiful
for you to see
black is us
black is here
black will never leave
black won’t ever leave
no black will never leave
