It’s now been twenty years that I been putting up with the bullshit in today’s society. I’m a Hispanic American that was born and grew up Brooklyn, New York, which is to be considered to be the “hood”. I grew up watching violence almost everyday of my life in my neighborhood, all I want is for racism to stop. The main topic spoken in the twenty first century is “police brutality”, “Police brutality is the wanton use of excessive force, usually physical, but also common in forms of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation, by a police officer. Widespread police brutality exists in many countries, even those that prosecute it.” The crime rate is skyrocketing, and it doesn’t look like there will be a solution anytime soon.

We think that we 're a target just because of our skin color, which is called industrial racism “is a form of racism that is a part of society. It can be both implicit and explicit in expression and is when a certain group is targeted and discriminated against based upon race.” I don’t blame them for thinking this way, so much police brutality is coming out to the open, and that’s just because technology is improving every day.

Great beats to great lyrics by “N.W.A.” but what I notice is that most of their songs were promoting hate. For example the song called “Fuk Da Police” were direct shots being thrown at the police force, N.W.A felt threaten so this was the retaliation that they took, expecting that the police will just fall back.

From what I’m seeing what happen here is called micro aggression. Micro aggression is “a brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults towards people of color.” N.W.A have million of fans that look up to them, ounce NWA started with the negative words (fuck the police), the energy will reach out to the fans and they will act a certain way that civilian shouldn’t be. One thing that I don’t understand is that African American is ways repeating themselves “I hate the police” but then again they know why they do. I have a question when someone kills one of your family member or
