Over the weekend, we watched on TV our people standing in solidarity peacefully protesting while some police continue to brutalize us. We have seen the news, we see the killings of black people, yes Black people killed repeatedly again for no reason while other “privileged” lives get spared.
Enough is enough. Stop killing us, stop lying on us, stop accusing us, stop silencing our voices. We contribute significantly to the US population and deserve equal treatment.
Black people are humans, Black people do the same work and are relevant. Black people are leaders, Black people have children and are raising them in this unmerciful world where they are oppressed and shot at before even investigating. We are tired of having to mention names like Ahmaud Arbery, Breana Taylor, George Floyd associated with murder.
We deserve peace, justice and, more importantly, to live a life worthy of telling our stories, but we cannot do so if we cannot breathe.
Is your place of employment discussing this? Are your non-Black friends supporting you or silent during these times?
