We Can’t Breath!

I’m so proud of everyone taking out their time to protest the injustice of not just George Floyd but the numerous black lives taken unjustified by police. Each fist raised, sign held, hand holding the other means we stand for something, means we will be heard.

Black and brown lives have yet to see a day where they are treated fairly, equally and with respect. This must stop, as a African American women I cry at night for my families safety; the conversations I must have with my children; no other race has to speak on. Because they can do as they please because Of the color of their skin.

Where, no who was the first racist, I’d love to speak to them.

When will the violence against us stop. From slavery to even today we are beat to death with the same system that says it was created for all and all are equal, but are African Americans still treated as 2/3 of a man?

I’m not big on politics, but I know right from wrong, there is no because he is white or she is brown different rules apply. It’s ok to steal our dignity, pride, culture, and lives; I don’t understand the hate or jealousy.

If we all were treated with the same respect and held all to the same standard of accountability, wouldn’t things be getter. But instead, the president can cover up court cases and people’s hes paid off because he’s white with money. A white man can be treated to McDonald’s after he shoots up a school but a black can’t run down his own street, can’t be stopped without being told to get out the car before anything wrong could be committed he is the own being told be is not the victim but the criminal with his face being held forcefully into the pavement.

I CANT BREATH

I CANT BREATH

I CANT BREATH… he shouted as bystanders watched.

We are in a world where we can watch a murder on Twitter, Instagram and the news and nothing is done about it. The people will get the justice George, Trevon, And the many other lives taken by white privilege.

We will stand for this no more.

WE CANT BREATH!

WE CANT BREATH!
