I'm just 24 years old, 25 in 2 months, and the amount of senseless killings that has happened to MY PEOPLE is just RI-DIC-ULOUS!!! We aren't killing each other. We are being killed. HUNTED.
Unless you have been living under a rock the last couple of days, than you are well aware of what's going on in the world today, matter of fact right now as I type.
Like many of you reading this, I am sure you have heard, seen, or even read about the trigger happy, or the "I was scared so I panicked," law enforcement that's pulling the trigger and killing someone of color, WHO IS BLACK, and leaving America in uproar.
There's unfortunately too many to name, but this one I am choosing to speak on is the latest.
ANOTHER BLACK MAN KILLED AT THE HANDS OF POLICE. AGAIN!! When will we know peace? White people aren't going to be satisfied until they wipe us out out as a whole.
Seeing yet another traumatizing video of yet another of a black brother dying at the hands (knees in the case) of police affected me as I am sure others differently than seeing a trigger pulled. Death in general is tragic. No matter the case. But to see someone or to die at the hands of those whose jobs is to protect and serve the community.
Some people see no wrong in what he did. Oh, he did this or that. HE deserved it. Excuse me, nobody deserves to die.
He repeatedly screamed out that he couldn't breathe, yet and still they stayed on top of him.
Floyd unfortunately joins an ever-growing list of Black names who died unnecessarily while police "protect and serve."
So why are the people so enraged about his death? Why the protests?
The people of Minnesota demanded that the men involved be arrested and charged with the murder of George Floyd.
We are tired of the slap on the wrist for killing our people. WE WANT JUSTICE. And until we get justice, THERE WILL BE NO PEACE.
So we riot. We PROTEST. We stand together. WE FIGHT.
After all, we are all we have.
African Americans dont even have the support of the President, as he refers to us as thugs in a recent tweet. President Trump is as pathetic as they come, and is not for the people, the black people that is.
See what he said in the tweet below
....These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!
We just want peace and for OUR people to stop being killed at the hands of police the ones who are suppose to serve and protect us.
So until then. NO JUSTICE... NO PEACE..
