At what age will I have to sit him down and say, Apollo we live in a world full of hate.
Your skin is a weapon so they think.
If you ever get pulled over by the police no sudden moves don’t even blink.
Should I fill my kid with such fear.
I cry as I think about young Tamir.
Black boys and black men just can’t be black.
The way they are killing them you’d think they have a target on their backs.
So many beautiful black people we have lost.
I’m drained as I sit here weeping wondering when will I have to have THE TALK.
