Coulda geus Me

jantung mah beurat. Kuring teu apal Allah anu alus, jeung nu Anjeunna di kontrol, tapi jantung mah beurat.

Minggu kamari sanggeus kajadian di Ferguson (jeung réspon ka eta dina média sosial), Kuring ngarasa burdened nulis lagu. tujuan ieu mah teu nyieun pernyataan grand atawa declarations, tapi pikeun nganyatakeun jalan nu sagalana dijieun kuring ngarasa. Jadi kuring mimiti nulis, ieu naon datang kaluar. Nu sentimen nu echoed dina pikiran mah: "Bisa geus kuring."

Kuring kungsi sakabeh post siap kumaha Kristen kudu ngabales di jaman kawas ieu, tapi sanggeus warta ngeunaan Eric Garner kamari, Kuring megatkeun pikeun ngadagoan jeung post nu saterusna. Kanggo ayeuna, Kuring kakara rek disebutkeun yen kuring boga jantung beurat. Aku teu kabetot dina debat atawa alesan ayeuna. Kuring kakara hayang kabebasan ka nganyatakeun Hurt mah.

Kaula hurting sabab video Eric Garner téh dahsyat lalajo. Lamun mah jeung pamajikan mah mimiti diawaskeun eta months ago, urang boh ceurik. Hirup kado éndah, jeung éta sobering pikeun lalajo hirup ninggalkeun awak batur urang - utamana lamun keur dibawa ku lalaki séjén. Teu sangka, "Pasti jelema teu bisa meunangkeun jauh jeung nu. Sahanteuna maranehna bakal boga ngajawab pikeun lampah maranéhanana di sidang a. "

Teu sangka salah. Jeung nu hurts.

Kaula hurting sabab éta bahaya jadi manusa hideung di Amérika. Kuring nyaho yén pernyataan sorangan nyaéta karasa ka sababaraha urang, tapi éta obyektif bener.

Kaula hurting sabab masarakat hideung anu hurting, limping sapanjang alatan loba isu kompléks.

Kaula hurting alatan aneh ngajalankeun-in Kuring geus kungsi jeung pulisi dina jaman baheula.

Kaula hurting sabab unggal manusa hideung Kuring teu apal geus miboga sarupa ngajalankeun-in.

Kaula hurting sabab pulisi bad make harder pikeun pulisi nu sae pikeun ngalakukeun pagawean penting maranehna geus disebut.

Kaula hurting alatan kuring geus ngajarkeun putra mah hal anu sarua bapa geus ngajarkeun kuring: "Jalma bakal nganggap anjeun anceman saméméh maranéhanana nyaho nanaon ngeunaan anjeun, jadi Anjeun kudu leuwih ati ti babaturan bodas Anjeun ngalakukeun. "

Kaula hurting sabab sababaraha urang teu paduli. Maranéhanana rada kukituna meunang hiji argumen ti Hurt jeung jalma anu menyakiti.

Kaula hurting sabab otoritas teu imun ka dosa jeung brokenness nu bala sesa urang. Lamun jalma anu disebut dosa polisi nu kaliru eta sorangan, mana ulah we ngahurungkeun? Kuring bingah alatan kuring geus batur gede pikeun ngahurungkeun ka, na kuring boga harepan sabab Allah baris mawa kaadilan di tungtungna. Tapi nu teu mean Kaula teu hurting.

Kaula hurting sabab tragedies nu meunang sinyalna media teu ngan tragedies. Aya loba deui.

For babaturan mah nu teu ngarti, mangga nyokot waktu pikeun ngadengekeun jeung sympathize. Keur "gancang ngadangukeun jeung slow nyarita" mangrupa mark tina humility jeung kematangan. Saméméh anjeun obyék, nyokot momen ka ngadangu ti maranéhanana anu hurting.

Ku kituna loba urang nu hurting sabab kami pikir mun diri, “Bisa geus kuring.”

    Hey Trip,

    Kuring ngan hayang ngirim maneh dipilampah. lalaki, pasangan kaliwat minggu geus tangguh pikeun kuring teuing pucukna. Abdi a perwira pulisi na ayeuna teh geus bener tangguh ningali sababaraha urang favorit kuring (rappers, panyanyi, babaturan, jsb) ngobrol ngeunaan pulisi jalan aranjeunna gaduh. Mimitina mah éta ambek, frustasi, tur siap ngajawab jeung dunya ngeunaan kumaha aranjeunna teu ngartos kumaha tangguh pakasaban urang téh, ngeunaan kumaha pikasieuneun eta tiasa di kali… Kuring nebak I ieu hirup di gelembung a, sabab beuki I maca ngeunaan masalah nu, beuki I dikaitkeun kana babaturan kuring, baca statuses y'all urang tentang kumaha anjeun geus kungsi dieureunkeun deui ku pulisi, kagungan mobil anjeun searched langkung, saterusna saterusna… Kuring ngan kapanggih sorangan sia bener depresi ngeunaan sakabeh mata pelajaran.

    Kuring boga cara kuring sorangan tina stopping kandaraan. Kuring ngeureunkeun éta dumasar kana hal pisan literal 80% waktu (pendaptaran kadaluwarsa, asuransi, jsb) sabab éta kuring “colorblind” cara ngahubungan jalma. Mangka séjén 20% of the time is if the car does something extremely suspicious and noticeable that I would believe someone without a police officer’s training would think was weird if tasked with the same mission I was. The point I’m trying to make is that I try to do my best to stay impartial, so that I’m not pulling a car over because it lookssketchyor because the person driving it lookslike a thug”. The thing is, I’m pretty happy about how I’ve been doing my job, and praise God for that. I guess where I’m depressed though, is that I feel so small in this BIG issue. The more I debated, the more I listened to my Black and Arab friends tell me about their stories of sketchy searches and probable causes etc. the more I realized I had no idea how to help this problem.

    I know I need to pray, and I have been because I know lots of good cops out there who try their best and who love this job for all the right reasonsBut I guess the human pride in me wants to be able to fix this problem and not stand idle while this issue continues across America. It’s just hard man… janten, I guess the purpose of this note is to say, I feel your pain bud. I feel the pain of many of my friends who have been subjected to sketchy police work. And for what it means / makes up for, I want to apologize for any uncomfortable situation you’ve been put through by one of us. And the second part of this note is just a prayer request, to keep my head up and to find a way to better my community, my place of work for everyone. It gets frustrating when you see a problem and you don’t know how to fix it.

    Quick last point, I love the song man. It brought me to tears in the fourth verse where you gave a shout out to the good cops. Thanks for that man!

    With much love and respect,

    Neal

      This touched my heart. Thank you for you transparent honestly. I salute you for being a God fearing loving man who chose to honor the oath you took to protect and serve. I pray you would be a light post in your profession and that your humility Honor and grace would shine on other Police officers that you may have the opportunity to share the good news with them. That through you more transformation discipleship and leadership would prevail. May God bless your hands feet and mouth to share this truth all the days of your life. Now you know your mission! #telltheworld #lovehard #overcome

      Wah! the song it’s self was deep and very heartfelt but that note really hit a place. A few weeks back I was getting gas at a state pump that my job requires us to get gas at and I would see sheriffs getting gas as well and each one I would see I would subconsciously tense up not out fear of the person though because I didn’t know them to be scared of them but it was just be this uncomfortable feeling, sabab tumuwuh nepi di 90 urang janten hiji perwira pulisi Nyaan melong ka aranjeunna salaku pahlawan ti pangalaman kawas lalampahan lees jeung sakabéh éta jejer dina lagu abdi visual sahijina keur pahlawan geus salamina robah.

Keur bodas tur hirup kalawan hiji sisi kulawarga kuring éta prasangka, jeung samping séjén éta sawaréh Afrika Amérika, I can tell you that what Trip said is true. In the case of Dillon Taylor, which I have to admit is one of the few times I’ve heard of something like this occurring, it may have been the same thing. Trip is stating that there’s still an issue with racism and prejudice in this country, and it’s due to sin. That problem doesn’t just go one way, but this song on its own is talking about the most pressing issue at hand right now, which is the epidemic of young black men who are treated unjustly because they fit a stereotype. You will believe what you want, but we see the issue, and we will stand against it, and hurt with those who hurt.

  27. Leanwalon

    I think its unsafe and dangerous being a white female and not a black man. I am not racist but most of the crimes that were commited against me, my family, and my friends, were by black males. I wish it wasnt true but it is.

  28. Thebiggerpicturewalon

    Why was he resisting arrest? He shouldn’t have died, but he shouldn’t have been resisting officers either. teu, it couldn’t have been you if you are obeying the law. What should officers do differently? Let people break the law, resist arrest and just go about their day? When does it end? Have you seen the recent statistics? THREE TIMES MORE WHITES ARE KILLED BY POLICE OFFICERS THAN BLACKS. THREE TIMES. Let that sink in. I don’t think blacks are being targeted. I think the rioting, looting and burning things down are going to make white children racist (bc they are seeing it all on tv and are going to think all blacks do that) and I think black children are going to think that it’s ok to act like that. Don’t give the police a reason toprofile.Stop making the black neighborhoods the most dangerous parts of all cities. Everyone (all colors) needs to stop thinking they are above the law and nothing will happen if they break it. (Good song, sanajan… you have skills)

    As a Christian who labors in areas of increasing religious hostility, I think it’s important for all of us to understand that if our group also becomes a target for lawless police officers, we will find ourselves in a similar role, oge. Which is just another reason why we MUST press for justice.

    We must press for equal and fair treatment for allfor human dignity. We must not accept the status quo. First and foremost for our brothers and sisters in the African American/Black community, but also for our society as a whole. We cannot survive in a land of tyranny. May we all learn many lessons from the tragedy of Eric Garner’s homicide. hatur nuhun.

    The thing that I love most about this song is that it forces me to feel the issue in a way that mere words did not. Thank you so much for honestly exposing the sin in my heart as well as the redemption of a great Savior.

    Praying with my hand over my mouth.

    Thank you for your words, perjalanan. I admire you as a man, a citizen, and a Believer. Your words have always touched my soul and made me think. Prayers to all of us. loba sunda.

    Is the stereotype true? Would there be a stereotype if there was nothing to support the stereotyping? We all know the lyrics of most rap songs these days. Its straight from hell, and causes those who listen to live like hell. If you see a culture of people listening to songs about cop killing, drug dealing, murder, stealing, being violent, being disrespectful, its easy to understand that they might have a higher tendency to commit those crimes they are listening to. Is there statistical evidence to support such claims? nuhun. Can everyone witness lewd behavior from this satanic rap culture in every city? nuhun. Is the majority of people in this culture black? nuhun. Thats the reason for the stereotypeAre they only black? teu, but every skin color, but predominately black. So its a cultural issue here and NOT A race issue, and it just so happens that the culture we are talking about is prominently black. Do you really expect people to not stereotype, when the reality of the matter is that in a lot of cases (no not all) its right? Tell that to the marine in Afghanistan who sees what looks like the same guy who killed his best bud the week before. You tell him to stop stereotyping. Its not racism, na musuh Allah urang anu geus wrecked bencana kana generasi ieu blacks ngaliwatan hip-hop jeung média. Tarung deui umat Allah.

  36. Billwalon

    Trip brother, I met you at Cedarville a couple weeks ago, and have always loved and promoted your music. Your talk on preaching was great! But I hope you will consider the other side of the coin. When you say that ‘It coulda been you’you need to understand in the same way that it could have been me, and I’m an old white man preacher. Walking down the streets of big cities or rural towns, we all can be victims of prejudice and hatredsimply because of the color of our skinno matter our character or what we are doing at the time. It’s a dark reality of the fall and sin.
    But on the other hand….it ‘would nothave been you who was arrested and killed on the streets’, because you would have responded to the officer as a Christian, and as a man who respects and obeys the authorities that God has ordained, as the apostle Paul did. If you examine the circumstances of each of these men you mentioned, it is obvious that they made a choice to resist, disobey, fight or attack the LEO who was doing their job that they are charged with doing faithfully. And while the officer may have been guilty of bias, prejudice or hatred, if the victim had cooperated with the law, they would still be alive and able to pursue any injustice against them in court. All of us are subject to injustice….and how we respond to it….often determines the outcome….as it did in each of these tragic cases.
    Thank you for considering this, and please feel free to correct me if I have it wrong, or if my advice is unbiblical or contrary to the teachings of Jesus Himself. God bless you my brother, and let’s work together for healing….not dividing.

  37. Stephaniewalon

    Life is so precious. It saddens me to see how the lives of the people in our community is not held in the same regard as other races. No one deserves to be gunned down or choked to death. Rest assure those who think this type of behavior will be overlooked by God you are sadly mistaken. If man will not stand for the what is right he will have to answer to the Most High. lalampahan Lee….your pain/our pain is real without a doubt. And the Lord will hear us and respond according. We just have to stand firm in Him, and be obedient to do what He says. I pray that as a people we will come together in Jesus Name in wisdom, power and strength for positive change.

  38. Jacobwalon

    perjalanan,
    You’ve been an inspiration to me since I’ve first listened to you. And while I generally love your songs, this one made me more sad than anything, and not just because of the tragedies of death that have occurred. It’s unbelievable to turn on the tv or read the news and see everything that we can do wrong in this world. I don’t know anything about those specifically mentioned cases aside from what the media tells me, though I must say I have certain opinions on each one. What is most painful to me is the the fact that no one is noticing the movement of motives from seeking the truth and establishing justice, to turning on and alienating others, more specifically white skinned people and cops. The way I see it, the only thing promoting racism are those who stand on a platform first giving their race and their offense. At first, I was going to post a bunch of links to stories I’ve recently read about horrible murders that have taken place recently of white skinned people by the hands of black skinned people, not because I wanted to say black skinned people are awful or less than white skinned people, but to say that everyone here is suffering and all are victims. How many white skinned people have you asked about sketchy run ins with cops? I guarantee you they’ve had them, cops make mistakes. Im not trying to take a side here, my point is that the only ones keeping racism alive are NOT those who supposedly act out of hate against those of another race, it’s one act of self-motivated hate, justice belongs to the Lord. But when a whole community or group continue to believe that their skins makes them any different from others. Those who believe their skins allows them to act or behave in control of others or gives them special permission to be offended. The race isn’t the crime. And our skin isn’t who we are, whether we grew up in Africa or Mexico, our skin pigment isn’t our culture or legacy. I don’t want to know you as Trip Lee the black man, and I don’t want to be known as Jacob the black man, or Jacob the white man. I’m Jacob, you’re Trip. We only advance this growing divide by acknowledging that it’s even there. But there is no divide. All brothers. All sisters. All sons and daughters of the Lord. I’m sorry you’re hurting man, thanks for all you’ve inspired in my life!

  39. Burtonwalon

    Nothing but truth brother, even though I’m white, I want to get into the coffin with ya’ll, and be grieved when you grieve. I’ve been following you for a long time and this track is definately one of my favorites! Love what you’re doing for us through the Lord Trip, keep it up.

  40. Shelbywalon

    hey trip, thanks for sharing your heart. While I am not a young black man, and I might not truly ever understand, I am trying to hurt with you. Thanks for bringing up the point that the bad police officers and make it harder for the 90% of good officers and I love your point that we are all worth the same in God’s image and that’s where our hope should be. Grace and Peace Brother.

  41. TBrantwalon

    I feel you on the lyrics man. I’m sorry that this has happened to you in the past and I am hurting with you as with all those who have been afflicted with this violence. Living love and walking with others, meaning to hurt with them and weep with them, is what we are called to do with those in suffering. I ask for prayer as I am currently struggling with things on a personal level but I’ll also keep you and people involved in this in prayer as well. Love you bro. Mungkin pernah pendak sareng anjeun tapi bogoh ka anjeun.

    Please tell me why you would do those things!

    You see while I understand that I will never know what it is like to be a minority in the US I have lived overseas. I lived in Europe for 8 taun. While spending time in Europe I found out that every country has a different culture. one of the things my family found that was very interesting was whenever we meet a black person in Europe they were from the UK. Everyone of them spoke proper English and were very polite and well dressed. None of them wore their pants around their knees.

    Tungtungna, what happened is sad! However it could not have been you. It could not have been me. That is not because I am a 25 year old male. It is because I would not steal and I would not fight a cop. Those are the issues here. Not race.

    kahiji, I’d like to praise the Lord for your salvation and servant hood brother. You represent the Father well. I’m blessed to say that you’re the first artist that God used to significantly impact my walk early in my salvation. Got saved in December of 2006 and I was so deeply embedded in the Hip Hop/Urban culture that it was hard to transition just listening to contemporary worship, “I Love Musik”. Appreciate your interview and advice regarding cultural awareness as it pertains to biblical worship and how it varies.

    May the Lord bless you and increase the fruits of you labor!

    Pastor Bill, grace and peace to you as wellthough I agree fully regarding resisting arrest I strongly believe that there are standards that should be upheld and enforced for improper procedures/actions.

  44. Michaelwalon

    Totally forgot to reflect on song. My beloved brother I believe this song encompassed what true hip hop is and what it was designed to be

  45. Zanderwalon

    Me personally I do not agree with this song. It shows the racism that is truly in america. Everyone complains that the whites are racist just because they did there job. If it was a black man who shot the kid (whom reached for the officers gun) shot him nothing would of been said whatsoever. Just my opinion and bring on the hate :)

  46. Jasonwalon

    teip lee my heart saddens also after watching the latest video of the man gettin chocked to death.

    I wrongfully judged you guys on speaking up. I looked at it out of a religious persons view instead of a commandment to love one another. I am sorry to the brothers in Jesus I have judged wrongfully.

    I know that I am not perfect and I need Gods love everyday. He has been graceful to me. He spared my life today from a terrible anxiety attack. I thought I was going to die but he did not allow it.

    I’m going to separate myself from all my social media (delete them) to become closer and walk with Jesus in Spirit and in Truth!

    At first, when I saw these posts, I didn’t get it. I pretty much just thought it was annoying, and I’m not too proud of that now. After listening to this song and Derek Minor’s recent release, I was reminded that grace is a big part of this, and the part I was missing most. I didn’t take the time to think about it from different perspectives. As a middle-class white guy attending a university, I had a difficult time understanding that we are looked at differently by others, you and I. Tapi, once I took the time to do so, my eyes were opened to a different place than the place I’ve been in my whole life. I want to sincerely apologize for not taking that time to see things from your perspective, and I want to encourage everyone to approach all of this with grace in mind. It is key. I thank you for posting this song, Derek Minor for releasing his, and all of the 11Six crew who have spoken about this issue and shared their wisdom.

  55. Kentrelwalon

    Trip Lee much love on this song man no lie. We needed this type of song to pull our heads out of the gutter, and see what God wants us to do. I’m on my mission to do a song just like this man. May God help us all at this hard time.

  56. Edwardwalon

    I am a pastor of a church in a small town in Arkansas and I don’t get stopped by the police for no apparent reason……..ANYMORE. That has not always been the case. My brother and I were stopped and told to get out of the car at gunpoint and all we did was drive into a town in northern Wisconsin. We were 19 atawa 20 taun. Five years earlier we were walking home and a police car slowly trailed us for three blocks or so before stopping us. They said we looked like some suspects in a robbery.

    I said it doesn’t happen anymore fully believing that it still can and that things can quickly go terribly wrong.

    I was introduced to Christian Hip Hop through KAA and I listen to the words in your songs all of the time. “naek” is cold, cold, cold.

    Your words speak truth about Christ boldly and 116.

    I appreciate this bold statement which looks at the big picture and does not separate and focus on one incident.

    When you said every black man you know has experienced thisI am one of them.

    Reach out to me anytime.
    Keep preaching brother.

    What a friend we have in Jesus; ALL our sins and griefs to bear, all because we do no carry EVERYTHING to God in prayer.. It’s tough BUT God is able to intercept if we render our helplessness entirely to His grace that is more than sufficient. We can ask many questions, question our identity etc., yet miss all the answers God has already provided in His Word if only we search the scriptures. If we have ever needed God, it’s NOW that faith is, as we realize the systems we trust to protect us fail. God is our refuge and strength a very present help in time of needOur hope is in the Lord God of the Bible through Jesus our Lord and Saviour and prince of peace, it’s for these reasons He took our place to die so we are accepted in the beloved and to be set free regardless of our diversity. We need not wait for another incident inevitably at this rate, let’s return to God, our first love. We left Him but He never left us. He is waiting, to heal our wounds and to dress us in royalty so we are dignified as His children not disgraced as slaves who have no rights. God is our father, we belong to Him, He is a responsible Dad we need Him! He has all we need including human rights!

    I am a white man who works with youth from various races and backgrounds. At the moment, 80% of the group is black and your song offends me. I have purchased many copies of your CD’s to give out to the group but no more. The flip side of your songIt could have been meis that you are really saying, “It could have been YOU” (white man) who could have done this to me (black man). You are WHITEwashing the real issue at heart and that is SIN. As a Christian artist you should know better but you are doing what others are doing: you are capitalizing on the deaths of others to sell your music and make money. You are know different from Al Sharpton. Please read the story of the rape & killing of the white couple Channon Christian, 21, and boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23 at the hands of people who happened to be black. This story never made the headlines because the horrific deaths of whites do not sell papers or rap songs. It could have been you but it definitely happened to them. janten, why don’t you sing about that. Hopefully, you will allow this to be posted and remain posted.

    Wah. It must be miserable being a victim your whole life. Misery certainly loves company, sanajan.

    Your song almost made me feel sorry for myself too considering every hurtful thing ever done to me. What’s the difference between you and me? I choose to learn from the past, and move on. Maybe I was in the wrong. Maybe I was wronged. Who cares.

    I’m stronger than that.

    p.s. I’m a white male, and I too have had confrontations with law enforcement as a teen never once being charged. I thank God for every one of those situations and how I learned from them.

  67. Thomaswalon

    Trip Lee is so light-skinned, he can pass as white. His wife and kids are also white looking. How can he claim to really be black or have the same experience as black people.

    Yes I’m white and even I know that life is harder for blacks with dark skin.

    Come Lord Jesus!

    Dinten, since the killing of the two NYPD officers, I finally thought that I would search the video of Eric Garner_I watched it, I could only handle watching it once; I am absolutely in dis-believe!! The tears are flowing….how fucking dare the cops, how dar them !! I am SO SORRY for Eric’s family, and friends. I understand that he was actually a great man, a beautiful, giving soul. RIP Eric Garner.

    I am a White female, in my early 50’s, I’ve never lived in the cities like where Eric did. I am privileged by any means; I work hard, have struggles making end meet; I have been wrong in the work place; actually bullied, fired, on more than one occasion; I have no rights, no one cares, the EEOC, is a crock of ….! Sapanjang hirup mah, I have had a run in or two with a cocky police officer; tapi, I have also had experiences with many good police officers. There is NO EXCUSE good enough for the actions taken against ERIC; he was SO violated, and basically killed at the hands of a cocky police officer. I can’t understand the failure in our judicial system; I just shake my head, I don’t know what to do; while watching the news, and listening to the stories_it repulses me! My parents raised me to not see color(s)… we are all one; we do all come from different walks of life; many of us have struggles, many struggles throughout life; but the same blood flows through our veins. Although, I’ve never been on thewrong side of the law;” my brother has, he to is White, did some time in prison(10yrs) for some petty crimes that were blown completely out of proportion; he has been out for about 15yrs now; he had to where an ankle bracelet for awhile(2yrs,) so that was a reason for the local cops to get to know him well, and hassle him, constantly, at that time. It’s been 15yrs, with NO issues, and he still gets hassled to this day, it is pathetic; he is still paying for the crime, although he has well completed his time. It is not just a Black problem, it is all of our problem. There is so much wrong with everything today, and basically, we really don’t have rightsbecause if we don’t do it the right way then we are wrong, and punished in some way or another. Although, there are many bad people in this world, one’s that have little regard for the life of another person, thieves, thugs of all colors; we need police officers to help fight crime; they do risk there lives many days; but their control, their level of force, the lack of listening to people, their sense of cockiness; it is most always the case of you are guilty, until proven innocent, and people all over this nation are being treated like they are less than that of the police officer(“law official.”) IT MUST STOP! Ourgreatnation, is not really so great at this timestarting with the government, trickling down to the local police.

    Back to Eric, deui, I am so sorry, and sad for his family and friends. I very misfortunate eventI hope that through perseverance his family will get some justice, of course it could never replace Eric.

    May peace be with you all.

    I don’t even know where to start. That’s exactly how I feel and I’m not even American but being black, knowing that people are being oppressed and then even murdered by authority is just heart wrenching, and then to know that the same authority is getting away with such makes it so hard to believe in any justice system, nyaan. I sympathise with the families involved and affected, both from the victims or perpetrators side.
