Black Boys On Mopeds.



I believe that this is not only the finest thing that Sinead O'Connor has ever done but also one of the two best songs from the past twenty odd years dealing with the injustice of people being killed by the law enforcement authorities on both sides of the Atlantic. The other being American Skin.

Not quite sure the point you are trying to make Anonymous, however the song was written about police brutality to young black males in the UK in the 1980s
