    "Gang Mentality" by Kinetic Affect
    Music by Nick Lobel

    To whom it may concern:
    I am writing this as my first step towards
    stopping the gang mentality of our society.
    I have witnessed the most vicious gan in action
    and no one can seem to stop them,
    see it's not the ones who wear red that call themselves Bloods.
    The most dangerous crew
    doesn't wear blue and call themselves Crips.
    No, they are much more sneaky than that,
    they mix black truths
    with white lies, so they wear gray suits
    with neckties,
    and throw toy soldiers into battles,
    they would never send their sons to.
    they call themselves our elected officials.
    see i used to be in the military,
    becoming part of an Army Of
    One, dumb president who traded in
    the well being of our environment
    for a gamble on economy.
    and I was stationed in D.C.
    when the twin towers toppled
    from terrorist acts of men
    hiding behind box cutters and religion,
    claiming that violence, was their way into heaven.
    but then again,
    we were the ones who trained them.
    and since our motto is retaliation
    i had to witness our warriors return home from combat
    where they left limbs and friends on battlefields without acknowledgement,
    while they paraded around Jessica Lynch
    as a war hero
    because a white female soldier getting captured
    creates better P.R.
    and support
    for a nation looking for any reason to stand behind its country.
    a country where gang violence can start
    from simply invading the right hood with the wrong colors.
    where, bullets fly and people get gunned down like black males reaching for wallets.
    and since their motto is retaliation
    they ride or die
    while police act fast
    to bring 'em in either dead or alive
    because lets face it,
    we just can't have people going around kiling each other.
    unless it's on foreign soil
    and it could have an impact on oil investments.
    then its okay to drop bombs over Baghdad
    and portray ourselves as heroes on the 5'oclock news
    because, we are freeing their people
    and rebuilding their cities.
    maybe we just need to bomb ourselves.
    that way Bush would give us 80 billion dollars a year
    to rebuild our own cities.
    hell it would create more job opportunities
    helping those who aren't looking for handouts to get off welfare
    because honestly,
    it's not really well or fair,
    when we're giving out too many fish to lazy fucks with no future,
    instead of teaching then how to catch it themselves.
    and not enough to the struggling single mother
    trying to go back to school,
    so she can provide a better future for her children.
    but it seems impossible with this president
    because he's a backwards Robin Hood,
    that's why I call him Nibor Dooh.
    So while Enron's get rich
    blue collars sing the blues while getting ripped off.
    Our social security is being stolen
    in broad daylight
    with a spotlight.
    and people are ready to trust it in the hands of a man
    who says,
    fool me once,
    shame on,
    shame on you,
    fool me
    can't get fooled again.
    we keep pushing this gang mentality on our children
    when we do not teach them ourselves
    but instead place them in front of the television
    only to see actors, ballplayers, and singers
    getting lighter jail sentences and million dollar contracts,
    while they let go of our teachers for budget cuts
    and classrooms get bigger, while understanding gets smaller.
    you do the math
    because I'm having trouble figuring out
    what we stand for,
    when no child left behind
    equals the desire to teach,
    plus patience,
    minus paychecks for cutbacks,
    and the only answer we are leaving our children,
    is you better make that money,
    and it's time we start changing the message.
    sincerely a teacher
    an ex-toy soldier
    who stand before you
    following their hearts
    and not,
    the gang mentality.
