Kid Cudi & Eminem touch on police brutality and racial injustice issues
The whole country was filled with rage and protested against police brutality and racial injustice. Earlier this year, certain cops were responsible for the deaths of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. The whole black lives matter movement started because of police brutality, especially with people of colour.
The lyrics have been written with direct reference to how former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on the neck of George Floyd.
Lyrics talking about George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery
Prayers to George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery
How the ***k is it that so many cops are dirty?
Stop man, please, officer, I’m sorry
But I can’t breathe when I got you on top of me
Your goddamn knee’s on my carotid artery
Black Lives Matter Movement in the USA
George Floyd was a black man who was arrested by four police officers. One of the officers knelt on Floyd’s neck, blocking his air passage, leading to his death. In a video that went viral, George was heard pleading the officer to leave him as he could not breathe.
However, the officer was insensitive towards his pleadings and did not move. When the video went viral, people were outraged seeing the police brutality and racial injustice. They have been protesting against the police and supporting the family to seek justice against the police officers.
