Black Lives Matter

These words are not a battle cry, not a called to arms, they are just an accumulation of frustrations that have plague Black people for centuries…

These words are not meant to incite, pick a fight with someone white…

They are a reminder to the racists, a reminder to people who cling to old beliefs and ideas about how to deal and treat Black people…

As of these words the death count by the hands of the police and those disturbed others, has reached epidemic proportions…

The videos don’t lie, the cameras don’t lie…Eyewitness didn’t lie…

Black Lives Matter…Black Lives Matter…

Outcries from Racist in High and Low places are in an uproar because of the marches and protests that are taking place, in every place, where someone’s family member has been killed unjustly…

Hiding behind the White Sheets is no longer a concern of those who still view black people in disgust and mistrust…

Blaming the Victims for their own demise is giving top priorities and guarded by Walls of Silence and Violence…

Getting off without penalties has become almost the norm for those who wish Black people had never been born…

For those who can’t hide the hate, can’t hide the feelings to regulate and subjugate and devastate anyone not the Right Color in their racist eyes…

The Marches say we are tired of revolving Courts that are not in favor of the victims…

We are tired of blatant Police Brutality going unpunished…

Tired of being seen as 3/5 a people…

The Marches say enough of this Sh..!

Enough of losing a love one who did nothing wrong…

Enough of the guilty smirking and getting desk duties with pay until they can retire and fade away…

Enough of weeping parents, children, husbands and wives, whose eyes can’t hide the pain they constantly feel on their inside…

The blood money doesn’t take their pain away, the Marches and protests doesn’t take the pain away…Time doesn’t take the pain away…

Black Lives Matter…Black Lives Matter…

If these words are upsetting to some, too damn bad because Black people are tired of being the only ones frustrated and sad…

We Standing up, Getting up, Waking up and We are Fed up!

Did I mentioned that the Powers that be better start paying attention...

      Well said! All lives matter; the amount of melanin in your skin shouldn't decide whether you live or die.
