For those who say “I don’t see color” - it’s time to. White friends- must see our privilege. We must see the hate. We must see the importance of owning your skin color and doing anything it takes to get this country to the point where all lives CAN matter. .
While I’ll never condone violence, if you look at the history you’ll understand why fighting violence with violence becomes the go to response. I will never understand therefore I will never dictate the response to pain, discrimination or to the blatant hate in this country from people who walk down the street to those who are supposed to protect society, and not just a white one. .
This IS the America I know but it’s not the America I love. While I believe we have come far in this lifetime, we haven’t done enough for it to be worth it call this country great when it comes to the treatment of our friends, our neighbors of color. .
Please join me in doing what you can to support our country by not remaining silent. By educating yourself. By acknowledging your privilege and standing up to prove that everyone deserves to be able to breathe on.
