Lyrics and Music ARE the ONLY way to accurately, powerfully communicate, and capture the George Floyd incident, and the groundswell of emotions surrounding the needless killings of black men, not just in recent years, but overarchingly to, once and for all, acknowledge that black lives matter and face head-on the painful concept of systemic, institutional racism not just in contemporary America but historically.
My cousin, Corey, was killed by a plainclothes police officer on October 18th, 2015, while waiting by his disabled car for a tow truck, in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

He would soon learn, EVERYONE ELSE DID.
