I don't mean to be harassed by undercovers or beat up
Like that trucker by them sucker ass police that one summer

from Joell Ortiz – Same Love (Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius


Joell is talking about how the various American police services are always viewed as being institutionally racist because of the way they treat ethnic minorities differently — a theme that Joell spends a lot of this verse talking about.

The trucker that Joell is speaking about is Olegs Kozacenko — A russian immigrant who was brutally attacked by a group highway patrol officers because he couldn’t understand a parking ticket he was given and refused to sign it.
