Black Lives Matter. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. As you can tell by the title in today’s post, I will talk about Black Lives Matter and share my thoughts on everything that is happening. You guys, what is happening in this world? 2020 has completely changed the world. This year we are fighting for a better future, from Coronavirus to Racism to Rape. Like seriously, the world is at war with no enemy but ourselves.
Black Lives Matter
When this whole thing started, I didn’t think of it because police shot a black guy thinking he was a criminal, of which society has made the world believe that all criminals, gangs’ group etc., are all ‘black people. However, the numbers grew, and soon after, it was like every single day I’m online. All I see is the same news every single day. The Police have shot an unarmed Black Man. Which then grew to my attention, and think, ‘Hold up, something is not right.’
When I watched the video of the horrific death of George Floyd on social media, my blood begins to boil. The poor guy was pleading for his life, and the police never listened. On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt (with a grin on his face) his neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down on the street.
This happened in broad daylight, and George was crying out loud, ‘I Can’t breathe, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe’ 11 times, and everyone who was watching was begging the police to stop choking him. They refused and ordered everyone to stay away as George slowly passed away. The wore part of his death was when he cried out for his mother – as a woman and a mother, I felt that deep. The poor man was unarmed, no threat to the public, just walking down the street, which leads to his death. George was a husband, father, brother and son. He didn’t deserve to die like that.
In the last 5 years or so, police brutality against black people have gotten worse. To the point where the police take the law to their hands and murder innocent individuals. Correction, innocent black individuals. Why? Why kill black people? Is this something to do with the government? Probably yes, but at the same time, it is also a personal choice. I am sure the police were not trained to kill any unarmed person – black or white. I feel this is a disgrace to humanity. The police are supposed to protect us, citizens. Who do we contact for help now?
Racism will never end as long as white cars are still using black tires.
It will never end if people still use black to symbolize bad luck and white for peace.
Racism will never end if people still wear white clothes to weddings and black clothes to funerals.
Racism will never end as long as those who don’t pay their bills are blacklisted not whitelisted.
Even when playing snooker, you haven’t won until you’ve sunk the black ball, and the white ball must remain on the table!
But I don’t care, as long as I’m still using white toilet paper to wipe my black ass, I’m happy.
Like everything else in life, Racism is a choice. Nobody is born a racist. Black Lives Matter is not all about the colour of your skin. Being black is your culture and a way of living. We are all human and make our own choices. For example, if you ask a mixed-race child to identify who he/she is based on the colour of their skin. That child is going to give you the colour that reflects on the skin more. It’s a choice. Your either see the colour or the person.
I can’t believe this is the world we live in. Rest in Peace to those who the police have killed. We can all go on and on about fighting against Racism. It will not change until our Leaders do something about it. Yes, they promise our protection and Equality etc. Unfortunately, this promise has not been fulfilled, and the fact that the same government that gave us all the promises are the one causing this Racist Brutality against black people is a disgrace. We don’t know who to trust anymore. We thought we were safe, but not anymore.
The fact that the police are targeting and killing black people gives the Racist the freedom to ‘play’ with our lives. Now, we don’t know who to trust or call for help. At the end of the day, we did not ask to leave our country. You brought us here as slaves and slaves only. You don’t like the fact we became stronger than what you ever imagined. With all your efforts to bring us down has failed, now your only option is to kill us? All we ever wanted is to be treated as we are – Humans.
Black Lives Matter
Thank you all for the support with our protests. There is still a lot more to get done, and it can only be done if we all stand together as one and be kind to each other. Enough is Enough. Hasn’t the coronavirus taught us anything yet? Life is shorter than ever. We shouldn’t ever be worried about leaving the house to get fresh air, let alone being killed by the police. I hope this Brutality ended in 2020. I believe there is light at the end of the tunnel. If we accept that the way we treat each other is wrong and change the way we are humans, the world will be a better place.
I hope you enjoy the post.
