Yes it is amazing how people get classified based on just who they are

People's Way

How many time people sit and often draw a conclusion
Based more often on emotion and hence and assumption
No statistical evidence, but what is conjured in the imagination
So that they can make an analysis about the state of a person

Some too can put a person down, based on the family background
So if they came from a poor family, then that premise is so sound
That within a certain time frame may perpetrate some form of crime
As that type of behavior is a feature of people of that kind

So therefore when a child demonstrates a type of behavioral pattern
Like a little violence, or will try to bully the other children
There is no doubt that those around will most certainly say
This may be the environment he lives in each and every day.

Then what a design is drawn of people because of skin color
This can bring out my anger and also too makes me wonder
No matter how you dress, all they can see it that physical appearance
So what they see and that mindset has no logical correspondence

And if you are in store having a cursory and perhaps interested browse
Sometimes quite oblivious to the type of suspicious they have arouse
So there is that type of surveillance, because it’s you the chances are great
That sooner or later that you from somewhere something will take.


But to those who think that it’s their sacred and privilege to stereotype
And by their own bias judgment they believe that it is so right
However no matter where we began that formative environment
It’s the person’s mind that most certainly make that determinant.

Judging someone is such a human flaw...and even worse if it is done because of the colour of their skin..
