Life, life, life, the most precious gift one can get. Someway, somehow the importance of one’s life is
determined by some people. I do not want to start talking about colonialism, slavery and the likes
just yet but I do believe all the stories we have heard are true. Right from that time, black lives have
been treated less and even till now we do not see any changes. You planted colourism in us and
made us question our self-worth. The only time a black person is truly acknowledged is if he is well
educated, worthy or a celebrity and even that does not exempt them from scrutiny. Living has been
made difficult for blacks that they have few options that they have to fight for with other race. Now
on the case of black lives that has been lost, let me name a few; Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery,
Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Sean Bell, Renisha Mcbride, Amadou Diallo, Jordan Edwards, Jonathan
Ferrell, Atatiana Jefferson, and let me end with George Floyd. Some of these people getting justice
and majority nothing close to justice. Black parents have the responsibility of not teaching their kids
how to make it in life but how to stay alive especially when it comes to the popo the very people
who are supposed to protect these lives. Even in the death of George Floyd people are trying to
make it look like he deserved to die. Issues like he was a porn star as if there aren’t whites who are
involved in this and have they been shot or choked to death? Some reports say he had the novel
diseasefcovid-19) as if it was guarantee that he was going to die. Even if he was a devil, who are you
to judge.” All lives matters”, but it looks like blacks are living by some battery. We are human beings
and we are part of the ‘all, so start treating us such and make this world a better place. RIP all lives
lost. All we are saying is #BLACKLIVESMATTERS, period.
