The Scary and Harsh Reality of Black Lives

Black Lives Matter Forever

They matter today, tomorrow, and forever.

So, if you’re new to the subject, you’re probably wondering what it means. I’ll simply tell you. Although, you may hear it on a day to day basis, you will continue to hear it. Until, it becomes muscle memory in your head. It’s a movement created to show the injustice, prejudice, and racism in a system. It’s been at least 405 years where we have face challenges of the oppressor that dismantle are way of life and we are tired.

Then, we tried peaceful protests,marches, gatherings,etc. Those are signs of taking action and being apart of a change but, nothing has worked thus far. We are living in a history moment and as you’re reading this post, you have a power to change that. Go out and use your voice for what’s right. Reach out to your local governors, police officers, and representatives about this issue.

Jumping the gun and saying but, what about “all lives”. Yes, all lives do in fact matter but the matter at hand is about BLACK LIVES. For example, imagine you’re a firefighter and your house is on fire. Then, you see someone complaining that their house isn’t getting the same exact treatment as the house that’s on fire.

You know why? The house is on fire. This is a human rights issue.

Leaping out to people and saying it’s not is absurd. Like do you hear yourself? The balanced efforts of the two parties need to come together. We have already identified the problem but now is time to implement.

Stay Motivated through this. Don’t hesitate to keep using your platform. Improved efforts are starting to show but we must not let up. Keep using your platform for good.

George Floyd, you will be missed

George Floyd, you will be missed.

You did not deserve what you happened to you by those officers. In memory of George Floyd, you’re forever in our hearts.

This post that I am writing to you all hurts. So, prepare to hear the pain in my voice reading this article.

There were not one but four officers that let him die.

Then, they sat there looking at his lifeless body.

Are you serious America?

Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Eric Gardner, Emmit Till, etc.

The list goes on and on and you expect people of color not be scared or stand up for themselves?

So, when will this issue ever be resolved?

I am tired watching the news each year and seeing innocent people die because of police brutality but, guess what.

Did you know, police brutality is now a leading cause of death for young black men in the US.

In contrary, what will be the solution to all the madness? We can’t keep letting the same recurring issue happen all the time.

It’s simply not far.

Then, people wonder why we retaliate and have protests and deem us as “animals”

The chasing of people cars, the rock throwing, the shouting, etc.

So, know you see my issue here? This issue is redundant.

The doer of all evils needs to be put to an end.

Nonetheless, we are tired.

I am sorry this had to happen to you. May your soul rest in peace.

The cries running down our faces, running away just to feel safe, and just protection overall. Feel as if were being hunted like wild animals but, we’re not.

We are human and should feel accepted like anyone else on this planet.
