Use the MLK method, appeal to the real sense of justice in American religion:

Jesus Christ was a man that traveled through the land G D Hard working man and brave G C
He said to the rich, "Give your goods to the poor." G D G So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave

 C                  G

Yes, Jesus was a man, a carpenter by hand c D His followers true and brave G C
some (of) them folks don’t understand G D G They’s laid poor Jesus in his grave

He went to the preacher, he went to the sheriff Told them all the same Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the Poor So, they laid Jesus Christ in his grave

When Jesus come to town, the working folks around Believed what he did say The bankers and the preachers they nailed him on a cross And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave

Now, the working people, follered him around Sing and shouted "Gay" But the Cops and the soldiers, nailed him in the air And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave

Well the people held their breath when they heard about his death Everybody wondered why It was the landlord and the soldiers that he hired That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky

This song was made in New York City Of rich mans, and preachers, and slaves If Jesus was to preach like he preached in Galillee They would lay Jesus Christ in his grave
