стих 1:
Нико не желиш да чујеш нашу бол
Тако се осећам када сам листају их твиттер коментаре, све осећам је киша
Они говоре да преболим то је стара
Та ствар не постоје више
Али то не звони тачно када погледам у овим улицама
Дакле, то је прави кад Осећам се као да ме Могао је

кука:
Човек може вам кажем како се осећам сада
Ах Желе да знају како се осећам сада
Осећам се као да ме Могао је
Осећам се као да ме Могао је
Сви смо направили на слику Божију знате
Сви наши животи битно, наша визија је шворц
Осећамо бол јер смо били овде пре
Ко је невин, не знам
Али ме Могао је
Осећам се као да ме Могао је

стих 2:
Нисам знао Мајк Браун
Ја не знам Траивон
Нисам знао Сеан Белл
Али знам да нема
Ја не знам за Оскара Гранта или Тамир Рице
Нисам знао Ериц Гарнер
Али знам да живот
Да ли вреди више него што говоре на тв екрану
Мрзим Имам дугачку листу, ти Финна видети да вриштим
Јер се осећам као да не видимо кингс
Је да влада као Њему, Они мисле да смо угрожених злотвори
Нисам био тамо када су пуцали на човека
Ја не могу да реше случајеве, Нећу рећи да могу
Али знам живот као младог црнца
Претпостављам да не могу бити љут да неки не разумеју
Али можда би
Ако сте гледали мој живот а био си где сам стајао
Користе очи да погледате ове улице
То је право кад Осећам се као да ме Могао је

кука:
Човек може вам кажем како се осећам сада
Ах Желе да знају како се осећам сада
Осећам се као да ме Могао је
Осећам се као да ме Могао је

стих 3:
Замисли ме као тинејџер
Брање од пића у продавници када сам видео
Благајница гледа у мене, онда вришти
Указује на куку и каже ми да сам видео
Али држати, Ја се не зна да сам то страшно
А ја не знам да ли могу да те убијем са купина
vrlo чудно, that he saw me as a thug
Када сам никада не би ухватио случај, никада украо или купио дрогу
Или како наступ у време када сам одлетео у емисији
Пун радости, Финна реп за просторији пуној људи
Напољу онда мислим да је то пиштољ у лице
Лисице на рукама, пат доле у ​​струку
То је исти онај стари, Саме ol
Ја одговарам опису једног злочинца који знају
Показали су ми слику, Хајде
Шалиш се? Ми не изгледам као
Well the cops thought we did if you looking right
Сваки црнац знам
Гот приче попут оне, жетве оно што се не сеју
Када су те преузму насилника из скока
Није важно да ли везао са пумпом
Погледајте Не знам да ли Мајк Браун је имао руке
Али ја пишем говорећи хомие И'ма станд уп
И И'ма ти кажем да осећам да погледам у овим улицама
И кажу да је то прави кад Осећам се као да ме Могао је

стих 4:
Скиес феелинг сива, очи црвене
Блацк анд вхите сукоб, облака над главом
Колико дуго док су чули шта смо рекли
Колико дуго док не чују оно што сам рекао?
Викати на све добре полицајце
Фигхтинг лоше момке, доношење добрих зауставља
Мрзим да на хауби блокова
На крају могу покушати да вам поистоветио са свим лоповима
Желим рећи свим својим младим црнаца
Знам да се осећа као да једноставно не може да победи
Али иу бесу не греши
Не потврђују оно што су они мислили
Не дозволите да нико нам немамо вреди
Неки ће покушати да нас угаси то неће радити
Знам да није фер, али знамо да му је стало
И једног дана он ће обрисати сузе

други
Где ти је нада у? Моја је у њему
Где ти је нада у? Моја је у њему
Имамо посла да урадимо, али надам се у њему
Имају посао да превише везе, али надам се у њему

    I see some of the points made in the lyrics, and I know this song is personal, but it feels like it’s a song that’s giving in to this chaos.

    The second section of the 3rd verse, talking about being patted down because hefitsthe description of the criminal. I’ve been patted down before, on the side of the interstate after being tailed for 3 miles, because I wore a beanie and a sweatshirt that made me look like I was from the harsher side of town. Not just that, but I was driving my grandfathers Impala with my dad in the passenger seat, and they checked our stories about us heading back from the local Apple store where I dropped off my Macbook to be fixed. Call it profiling, call it whatever, but it was anything but the color of my skin. One officer was white, the other was black. That was me.

    First line of the first verse: “Нико не желиш да чујеш нашу бол”. Pretty sure I know what it means. The word “наш” in that phrase, to me feels like alienation from the song, like I won’t understand what the struggle is, or how you feel. I may not be able to understand, but God gave me the means to support, through Prayer.

    Continuing on that thought, “Сви смо направили на слику Божију знате”. There’s the whole counter to the song. God created us in His image, and no color, disabilities, gender or origin of nation has ever made God look at any individual He created any differently, so why should we? Why should I look at myself any differently from you, and vice versa?

    I could get further, but I feel I’ve said enough. Путовање, as a follower of Christ we wear our faith, we don’t look at any person any differently or treat them differently. We throw away Self, and focus and put the attention on Him, and regardless of how any one of us feels, when we say we are Christians, the way we act and the things we say reflect how people see Him through us. So if it could have been you, should I look at you any differently? What if it was me?

    My point is, beColorblindin this world.

      Brother Jordan, can I just express thatcolorblindnessis not the answer to these issues? Let me switch it quickly from race to gender. Men and women are very different, и то је добра ствар! To begender blindwould be very detrimental, because it would naturally cut off the importance of our differences, and make us miss out on God. What I mean in that is that as men, mercy tends to not come as naturally as it does for women (notice the word tends!). If we only looked at men, we would miss out on the mercy of God. We would read about it, but see no tangible, human example of His mercy (I’m know I’m speaking in aggressive generalities, but only to make a point).

      Race is the same way. We are actually very different, naturally! Blacks, Asians, Whites, Hispanics, we are usually very different in our worldview, personalities, culture, итд. This is a beautiful thing. By looking at one cultures passion over another, we can see that God is a passionate God (passionate about the right things). By looking at one culture’sslow to anger(ness),” we can see that God is patience with us, and is slow to anger. By looking at different cultures, we actually get to see many pictures of God.

      Without question, we are all to be treated the same, because we are all created in the Imago Dei. Међутим, we are different, и то је у реду! I’m half black, half white, and have a ton ofblack traits,” и “white traits.Okay. That’s great! Hopefully they show us something about God! I vote for celebration and learning of differences rather than colorblindness, and a true celebration can only happen in the gospel.

        Tori,

        Your words have inspired me to write a song using a variation of your words: “We are all created in the Imago Dei, however, we are different and that’s more than OK”. Thank you for your initiative to speak and spark wisdom. The rest of the song has turned out to prove itself as purely an undeserved gift of words to express our unity in diversity and in Christ.

        Grace and Peace,
        Nate

      Well said Jordan. I will say this one thing: Instead of being colorblind, could we instead see our different ethnic backgrounds as God’s creativity? We stand together with Him under the name of Jesus. He is our bannerno matter if we’re from Ferguson, Cali, Oregon, Alabama or New York. Jesus is our focal point. And in a culture that wants to separate us intominoritiesand different groups, we stand as Christ’s body, underneath Him.

      But I do appreciate your insight on the song. Thank you for building the Kingdom up for His glory!

      trip, thanks for these thoughts. I appreciate your sharing your experience as a man of color who thinks of his identity and the tragic state of our culture through the Lens of the Gospel. May the Lord continue to build his Kingdom and fame through your work. Хвала вам.

    It’s saddening reading all the events going now in the world. Right from NYC to Kenya. Painfull issues yet we don’t learn from them and keep doing the same things. It’s time we truly became our brothers keepers

    Powerful statement, beautifully crafted. Brought years to my eyes when I least expected it. I only recently discovered your music and it has been a wonderfully inspirational discovery at the time in my life God deemed it so. Much praise to you, young brother.

    To say that God doesn’t see color is unBiblical. (Јордан) The Bible says that God created different nations and tongues to showcase His majesty. We shouldn’t pretend that it doesn’t exist! If you say you want to be there for a believer who deals with these things by prayer or whatever avenue then why are you trying to argue his song? He is sharing his hurt. His pain. Stuff that black people, go through. Why do you have to feel alienated for him saying that. Why does your ONE example of a bad experience have to rule out or invalidate the hurt and frustration that many black people have to face daily. Not just that one time. My husband always has to go above and beyond to make sure he comes off as non threatening to people!! Зашто? Why is it that he is black so he is considered scary and threatening. Why is it that he talks articulate that people feel they need to make the comment, wow you are not what I expected, or you are not like other black people. Do people go up to you and are they surprised by the way you speak? Stop for a min and just hear people out, you don’t have to agree or understand. Just show some empathy and help be a part of the solution! Thanks for sharing your heart Trip Lee.

    Trip Lee man,

    Can I just state that I have grown to love the major authenticity in your voice?! Ahh it’s so raw and real! This is a great feat. брате. Very true, I am very saddened to hear about all of the corruption in which has been shown here on the air and it is crazy how bias and upside down this world can beI’m very disappointed in my own race in which has been stereotyped and broadcasted upon. The video from Brooklyn NY is one of the most saddening things I’ve seen in a long time.

    I love what Jordan is saying. I myself am a black America, a woman, but in my opinion, gender doesn’t play a huge role, black woman can be targeted in discriminatory ways also. I have never been targeted personally for the color of my skin, but I like to think I’d never hate or wish bad things to someone who was to harm me or kill me in a circumstance like the ones we are talking about. Being a Christian, I’m constantly reminded of the verse where Jesus tells us to turn the other cheek. If someone hates you, you love them despite that. Racism will never stop happening, but if someone attacks you, turn the other cheek. You can’t make anyone accept you, stuff like this isn’t going to stop. But we need to stop thinking that blacks are the only race targeted. The only difference is, the white on black crime is the only crime being brought up in the news. What about a white guy killing a Hispanic? Or an Asian killing a black? We are all created equally. да, there was a time when slavery was all black people knew, but today there’s slavery and racism happening among every race. God does not see the deaths of these black men any differently than he sees the death of anyone else. I think we are forgetting that concept, no person’s life matters more than another. And let’s also not forget that we really don’t know the exact facts of these crimes. Путовање, I’m not hating on your song at all, it’s great that every person has their own opinion and this is yours. Although, I will say, yes it could’ve been you, but it also could’ve been a white man. Us black people are not the only targets. Let’s try to see each other the way God sees us, 100 percent equal.

    As a biracial, Color blind(да, because my heritage and culture include too many different races to start focusing on one at a time. I celebrate THEM none the less) woman I can’t imagine anything that a black man is going through. Especially when people jump straight on race and leave God out of it. But I’m glad that you put God in it where he belongs. He belongs in this situation, He belongs as the Justice giver. We belong and trust in Him.

    I played this song for a room full of people trying to hear their brothers and sisters cries yesterday. There were about 18 of us and 6/8 were white. Your words cemented things.

    Know that your words are reaching people in deep, beautiful ways. Thank you for your honest reflection.

  11. Johnnyодговорити

    If you are making this about yourself or about a specific race then it has nothing to do with God. Your song only shows why the racism issue continues the way it does because no one is willing to change the cycle only cry about how they are treated poorly white, Mexican, Asian, people die in the same ways all the time by committing crimes and being stopped by someone we have accepted as a protector. Your either for justice completely or you aren’t there is no fine lines or excuses. You bring up fears and anger, Gods not in those yet you choose to be. You put God in this so g just so Christians keep listening to you rather then making the right stand for God instead your our lyrics say your gonna stand up for racism that your going to make tis song about racism and not God. You can’t sit at 2 tables you either sit at the table if the Father or you sit at the table of the fallen. Either way you’ve lost a fan. I hope you can come to terms with your fear and see how simple respect would change fear into shared respect and working together. If it coulda been you, then maybe you need to rethink your life choices.
