Does it Matter? (Vol. 3 #3)


THINK YOU...

"...From her beacon-hand glows worldwide welcome... Give me your tired, your poor, your riddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" - Emma Lazarus/Statue of Liberty

If All Lives Matter, why did 3 woman have to cry out: Black Lives Matter?

Somewhere, over the years, we forgot what it meant to be human, to discover, to create, to work together, to love. In this sequence, we isolated our trust and diminished our expectation. As a result, we have chosen to identify ourselves with labels and classifications. Now in society, our energy and existence are consumed by the selfish mannerisms of value and survival.

I personally am able to see each perspective of this ethnicity battle we find ourselves in throughout the United State of America. Let's make the examination.

I see the people of direct African decent, and those of dark skin who live here and have grown restless with senseless violence committed by agencies designed to serve and protect Citizens. To them I say, brutality is more than fatal. This horrific norm, for people who look like me, is experienced through the court system in general - which impacts: housing, education, equitable opportunity, available resources, and the family structure as a whole. Until this understanding is embraced - society will never be satisfied.
