Little black boys, why are you so scared?

Why do these heroes frighten you?
With super powers
And super guns
The villains will get their due

Little black boys, it will be okay
Stay calm, do not run
These heroes will see
Your small hands up
That you have no super guns

Beautiful black boys, what have we done?
Your spilled blood stains our memories
True villains run loose
Threat’ning true heroes by noose
Peace chokes as Justice hangs from trees
