What critical themes does your text express? Which do you think is most important or meaningful?


Racial injustices and inequality

Police brutality

Oppression

Among the above mentioned themes, oppression is more meaningful and evident in the text. second last line of verse two reads, "We ain't slaves, let my people fly", indicates the will to be freed from oppression.


What evidence from the text might you analyze via part and whole? Cite the text and your reasoning here.


" All these beautiful, precious black lives lost in the name of senseless white pride."

The phrase in line 14 and 15 of verse one is an evidence of the senseless and careless killing of black people by the white police officers. The killings happens everywhere in the house or even in the park and no one seems to understand why and how many blacks will have to die for this act of oppression to come to an end.


What evidence from the text might you analyze via cause and effect? Cite the text and your reasoning here.


" You know the language of the unheard, is a riot."

" All we ever see from you is violence."


One of the main causes of riot from the text is the racial injustices and the infringement of rights of the black community. Police brutality further increases the frustrations of the black people who end up in the streets to fight for their rights and expose the institutionalized racism within the various systems. These riots are what causes violence when the police retaliates as of line 2 and 3 of verse two.

" Never seem to matter what we do."

" You think we don't matter, but we do."

The phrase " You think we don't matter but we do" insinuates equal rights and opportunities for all, whether black or white, all lives matter. This however not the case as black people get killed with police brutality and racial injustices more rampant to black people than the white whether they are right or wrong, whatever they do does not matter.


What evidence from the text will you use to address presence and absence? Cite the text and your reasoning here.


" How many mothers have to cry?"

" How many brothers gotta die?"


Many black people are loosing their lives, mothers cry all over for their lost sons. The unending cries and loss of lives and racial inequality that stretches borders indicates the prevalence of police brutality on black lives while the the judicial and unjust systems shows reluctance to hold accountable the individuals responsible for the deaths.


How will you order your analysis? Explain your reasoning and make a quick outline of that order here.


Introduction

Main body

Conclusion


Introduction

The judicial system of the US has been in many occasion depicted to be leaning on one side, favors the white while the blacks suffer in the hands of the same system. It has become increasingly difficult for the black population to defend themselves from these injustices given the institutionalized racism common in the systems. The lyrics of the text gives an insight on the failures of the system which corresponds to my statement on the level of oppression they go through.


Body

The killings of the black people by the police and the brutality, the racial injustices, the institutionalized racism and the racial inequality are some of the forms of oppression the black community are subjected to. The fear of loosing sons, brothers and mothers are the fears the black people live with and no amount of concern raised has changed the system.


Conclusion

All lives matter, whether black or white and deserves equal treatment. The killings of black population needs to end and the violence.
