Dead Prez and Outlawz: 1Nation

This song is about how the government tries to play groups against each other (specifically the Bloods and Crips) so violence is directed inwards in communities and not at structural problems. It makes me think about the role police play in gang peace treaties, both in L.A. in 1992 and more recently in Greensboro.
