Got my black rag showin and I'm hoin; Ira Reiner

from Ice Cube – The Predator Lyrics on Rap Genius


Ira Reiner was the Los Angeles District Attorney in charge of prosecuting the LAPD officers in the Rodney King assault case.

He took much of the blame for the acquittals of the officers and his political career began to unravel in the aftermath of the case.

The black rag Ice is showing is in mourning for the terrible legal decision and the anger he feels for Reiner — who he and the African-American community feel bungled the case.
