Do All Lives (Really) Matter?

          
DO  ALL  LIVES  (REALLY) MATTER?        

 
Do all lives matter in this country 
If Black lives don't matter to the police. 
If Derek Chauvin can kill with a knee,
Choke a man to death, for eight minutes, on national TV.

If it takes a riot to get him arrested do all lives really matter.
Why do we even need one protest when a non-violent person is killed by the police
Do Black Lives matter in this country ? Do all lives really matter?

 

Do all lives matter in this country 
If black lives don't matter to vigilantes. 
If George Zimmerman can get away with murder 
Do ll lives matter in this country? 

 
Elijah McClain Didn't Have a Gun 
Elijah McCalin was choked to death 
In Aurora Colorado by a policeman. 

Do all lives matter in Colorado.

Breonna Taylor didn't have a record and wasn't wanted by the police, 
Breonna Taylor wasn't a threat 
Breona Taylor wasn't under arrest 

If Breonna Taylor who didn't hurt anyone 
Who didn't have a record 
who didn't carry a gun 

So why Breonna Taylor's apartment targeted. 
Why did they batter down her door in Charlottesville, 
Even though the report said she wasn’t a threat/ 
The neighbors called the cops on the cops because they thought it was an attack, 
by someone other than the cops, 
It was an attack, but it was an attack by the cops 
  Who wanted to arrest a man who wasn't there.

Breonna Taylor wasn't a threat 
Breona Taylor wasn't under arrest. 
But her apartment came under attack 
When someone else was under arrest 
Someone else who had already been arrested 
Now do you understand why her death is protested 

If Breonna Taylor who didn't hurt anyone 
Who didn't have a record 
who didn't carry a gun
