Got niggas in black hoodies homicide celebrated

from Wale (Ft. Aaron Wess & Rick Ross) – The Show Lyrics on Rap Genius


Young black men are killed just for wearing hoodies, and murder is unpunished and glorified.

This is an allusion to the murder of Trayvon Martin and both the alleged racism/hoodie bias that surrounded it and the following protests in which youth wore hoodies like his.
