They be hating on the man, with a knife in their hand
Cut from a different cloth, cut from a different cloth
Soul doesn’t judge people who fight their government with violence, for he doesn’t know why they do it, if they were raised to be violent and are just a product of their environment, or if violence is necessary in their cases.
For example, a lot of people may have judged the radicals in the 2011 Egyptian revolution against former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak as terrorists because of their violent response to the government’s suppression of their democratic rights, but in cases like this one, violence was necessary to get the government to respond and obey the people of Egypt’s wishes and it shows how easily people may be misjudged.
This relates back to the main theme of not judging people unless you know their whole story/background.
