I can never pick out the difference and grade a cop on the bill

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Pharrell Williams) – Good Kid Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He can’t tell the difference between good and bad cops just by looking at them. Moreover, Kendrick knows better than to profile the ops the way they racially profile him. Just like there are good and bad black cops, Kendrick is making a statement that there are good and bad black citizens in Los Angeles; one “can never pick out the difference.”
