Johannesburg - Lindiwe Suttle, the daughter of legendary TV personality Felicia Mabuza-Suttle, decided to write a song about the injustice black people in America face. But all she could come up was one word.

Lindiwe is a singer with a track on the Billboard charts (give that track a listen HERE) and so decided express her feelings about #BlackLivesMatter through the power of music.

"Another #BlackWoman in #police custody gone too soon, 37yr old #RalkinaJones. I go to write a song about this #America #USA #Cop #problem," she wrote on social media this week.

But when she sat down to write all she could come up with was:

"I come up with F******************************** that's the best I can do at the moment, the right words are failing me cause it's not right," she wrote.

Lindiwe stressed that she does not normally swear but "nice words aren't coming to me right now, they just aren't my heart is breaking and nice words don't come...."

It's real, Lindiwe! But we don't think this one is gonna make it onto the charts...
