Observing what my brothers faces in all races
Lost in generations before hatred
He sees the difficulties and struggles that every person confronts. To Joey it makes no difference if someone is white, black, asian or hispanic — we’re all brothers.
Note the dope wordplay on observe and face. It makes face a homonym, giving it multiple meanings;
Face as in, to confront the issues each race deals with.
Face as in your literal face, Joey shows empathy and knows what individuals are going through — it’s happened to him too.
Furthermore he refers to the “Lost generations”. Many examples of this have occurred over history where races have been persecuted against and literally lost generations of men and women.
