All lives matter, but is black lives included in all lives? I doubt it. Therefore, I say all lives do not matter if black live does not matters.!
Black lives matters is an international human right movement created by the African Americans to fight against racisms towards the black people.
The #blacklivesmatters started in 2013 Due to the unlawful death of Trayvon Martin in 2012 who was shot by the police officer George Michael Zimmerman. A lot of black people has been killed in a similar way to how Trayvon was killed with less or no justice served to the killers. Georgefloyd, Amaudarbery, jordandavis, Ericgarner, johncrowford, oscargrant and the list goes on.
And you expect us to keep quiet? You expect us to keep watching our own people get killed for no reason? You expect us to watch our dads and brothers taken away from us? Do you?
I went on twitter one time and I saw a tweet that said, “being black is panicking when your dad, brother, or husband does not pick their phone because they might be dead” and you see that? Is the fact.
Trust me, black people are not just out there protesting for no reason. “THERE IS NO SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE”. This protest is demanding for change and equality and not war or revenge.
Discrimination of against indigenous people and people of colour is everywhere. Matter of fact, in today society we do not even have to look to far to see it. its in schools, colleges, hospitals, social services etc…
oh, let’s not even think racism only happen in America Because, that is a big fat lie. For example, I read in an article that stated that black women in the UK are 5 times more likely to die during childbirth as a result of complications compare to white women. Why is that?
Racism, discrimination or violence of any sort against indigenous and people of colour needs to be stopped and without you and I speaking up and making use of our platform to raise awareness, nothing will change.
Now is our moment and opportunity to talk. This is our fortuitous. We have to talk about justice and make radical changes needed to break the racist system that has failed us. Killing, policy brutality, discrimation, systemic violence is not just a thing that has happened to one or two people, it is a thing that is constantly happening and causing the lives of our people. it is happening right now to someone. It is the reality indigenous and people of colour live. it is our life and it needs to stop!!!!
As a young woman who has nieces and will one day have a black son and daughter, I wouldn’t want any of them to go through what our black men goes through in the hands of police officers non will I want my daughters to go through what black women goes through in the society just for being black. Hence, why we are protesting, rioting and demanding for changes. It’s not only for now but for our generations to come.
My question now is that, what is wrong with being black? I mean black is just a colour just like white is a colour.
There’s a lot more things to mention as to why black people are angry, however, this will all be mentioned in the second part of this blog.
