And since we talking about abortions
We ain't put them clinics in our own hood, somebody making a fortune
You talk about these mothers like they out here killing for sport
Rather kill they baby in her belly before he get brought in the war
You politicize our genocides
Then use the victim as a scapegoat
But if you care like you say you do
You should talk less and do more

Stay out of my thread. I don't like racists. I've seen enough of your past posts to know you're one. You're exactly who Derek Minor is addressing in this song. I'm being serious. Stay out of my thread. I don't like you at all.

josh,

im sorry you feel that way about myself.  I believe a human in the womb is sacred.   The artist, Derek in his music, to me, is suggesting  that abortion is better than life in the hood.    I find that idea is disturbing,  abortion is never alright; in any way, shape or form is not even in poetry .

Thanks for these videos.  That's some real hip-hop truth.

There are many different ways to interpret art.  Sometimes, that may be the tragedy of the situation... People feel like they have no hope, no way out... We all have to do what we can, not just pass judgment. 

God forgive me for all the times that I have piled onto people in difficult situations with my judgments and "answers" instead of offering a helping hand and a loving presence.

Choose life, my friend

no matter how difficult  Life can be your not alone.   God did not put You or any person on earth to have a good time.  Life is a trial!

the trials and tribulations that all men, rich or poor (mankind) must go through in life on earth  is simply a lesson to make a better person.

I feel that way about you because I've seen some blatenly racists posts from you in the past. If you actually listen to the song Mr. Minor is not suggesting abortion is better than life in the hood. He says "Rather kill they baby in their belly before he get brought in the war You politicize our genocides Then use the victim as a scapegoat But if you care like you say you do You should talk less and do more"

He's not stating his view on abortion. He's stating what the mother may be thinking/going through a lot of the times in these situations. And then he's addressing people like yourself who scream pro-life yet don't care about helping these mothers and children after the child is born. Don't pretend you care about black babies then type racist posts on a Catholic website like you have throughout the years. Don't come in my thread and start waving your finger criticizing a Christian rapper you know nothing about and saying his poetry is sick. You know nothing.

"It Is What It Is" - Derek Minor
 

Cold world most of my kin dead or in the pen
That's why I'm an Eskimo, I bought an igloo and put on my wrist
Ran out of option we gotta survive so we takin risk
Committing sin we gotta live
It is what it is
Red dot on your white tee it look like Japan
The 40 is on me and if I get hot it blow like a fan
They talk bout the hood like they know the answer but never been in
Committing sin we gotta live
It is what it is

Yeah, yeah, everybody got the answers (answers)
They say that they plan is to master (master)
They preaching to us like they pastors (amen)
Yeah, yeah, the government treat us like cancer (cancer)
The prison system make us bastards (bastards)
Our sin on the news and it's plastered
We can't even turn to charity, they make money off our tragedy (they get the money)
If life's like a school of hard knock, street will teach you like academy
Everybody in they glass house, tell us what we need to do to make it out
When they was born on that mountaintop, they ain't seen the bottom, they don't know the route (they don't know the route)
You think that we choose this environment?
I wish I could choose that entitlement
Instead of being born in poverty and hungry hyena's surrounding me
The Fortune 500 won't hire me
So we create our own economies
With dope money, yeah, our salary
Just to feed our families
I close my eyes and pray that God deliver me
Churches move into our hood but they don't come and speak
While they gentrify, we risk our life
Selling dope, prolly die not knowing Christ

Cold world most of my kin dead or the pen
That's why I'm an Eskimo, I bought an igloo and put on my wrist
Ran out of option we gotta survive so we takin risk
Committing sin we gotta live
It is what it is
Red dot on your white tee it look like Japan
The 40 is on me and if I get hot it blow like a fan
They talk bout the hood like they know the answer but never been in
Committing sin we gotta live
It is what it is

I used to wonder why, we blow our whole tax refund
On brand new J’s, a Gucci belt, a few gold chains
When you can put that change in a IRA
You just waiting, by the time that you retire
You’ll be at the millionaire stage
What’s the point of saving anything
You die, you can’t take it with you
And that will probably be tonight the way that they shooting, they straight out to hit you
I bet you God hear the prayers of millions of mothers
And they all sound the same, even though their sons in different gangs
And they shooting at each other right now
You hear her cries now
Now he's a hashtag they debating 'bout it online now
That's what I call an abortion
And since we talking about abortions
We ain't put them clinics in our own hood, somebody making a fortune
You talking 'bout these mothers like they out here killing for sport
Rather kill they baby in their belly before he get brought in this war
You politicize our genocides
Then use the victim as an scapegoat
But if you care like you say to do
You should talk less and do more

Cold world most of my kin dead or the pen
That's why I'm an Eskimo, I bought an igloo and put on my wrist
Ran out of option we gotta survive so we takin risk
Committing sin we gotta live
It is what it is
Red dot on your white tee it look like Japan
The 40 is on me and if I get hot it blow like a fan
They talk bout the hood like they know the answer but never been in
Committing sin we gotta live
It is what it is
