Melanin: The Most Dangerous Weapon





By Richard Scott | Gonzaga



Scott talks about the culture of protests in America and how it relates to skin color.



A system built to destroy

A movement marked marxist

My pigment weaponry

A country willing to divide for equality


Colin’s knee was peaceful

Yet you felt attacked

You preach Dr. King’s peace

But this is the language of the unheard


Tired became exhausted

We became threats

Riots became the focus

This reality became inevitable ​


My back a bullseye

My skin an armory

My melanin a threat

This is why we kneel
