Alhammdulillah. It's a small justice. True justice would be Ahmaud Aubery going home to his family. True justice is Black and brown people being able to live freely without being persecuted for the color of their skin.

“I’m speaking to you from my heart. Look, I don’t know if I’m going to have a career after this, but fuck that. Today is about innocent people who were halfway through their process, we don’t know what George Floyd could have achieved, we don’t know what Sandra Bland could have achieved, but today we’re going to make sure that won’t be an alien thought to our young ones. Every black person in here remembered when another person reminded you that you were black. So none of you out there, all those protesters on the other side, protesting against what we want to do, protesting against what we want to try and achieve, burn you, this is so vital. I need you to understand how painful this shit is. I need you to understand how painful it is to be reminded every day that your race means nothing and that isn’t the case anymore, that was never the case anymore.” John Boyega at The Black Lives Matter protest in Hyde Park June 3rd 2020

I cannot believe someone had the AUDACITY to say they’re worried about the skin color of the new baby. Meghan is better than me because I would’ve snitched.

These were all murders. They were not accidental. All of these innocent people: men, women AND children. Were murdered because they were black. Not because they were violent. Not because they were threatening, but because they were black. Something has to change. We have to MAKE a change. Black lives matter. Black men. Black women. Black children. Non-Binary blacks. Trans blacks. Every single one of their lives matter. Your friends. Your neighbors. Your teachers. Your brothers. Your sisters. We are the change.

People say "Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor" but don't even know who those cops are.
Their names are Brett Hankison, Jonathan Mattingly, and Myles Cosgrove.
ARREST BRETT HANKISON, JONATHAN MATTINGLY, AND MYLES COSGROVE.

If you are against BLM, you are unwelcome on my page.
If you support AllLivesMatter or BlueLivesMatter, you are not my friend.
If you think the riots are unjustified and irrational, unfollow me right now.
I am not black, but I support the black community all the way. I cannot possibly understand your pain or your suffering, but I'm with you. Now and forever.

Let’s not allow a smaller media coverage on the black lives matter movement and protests feed your mind that this issue has been dealt with and that it’s no longer ongoing.
Don’t listen to claims of being blind to race or that it’s not an impediment in any nation if it’s not something you will ever have to face, instead lets embrace everyone and culture that we’re blessed to have around the world.
Let’s put an end to lives being carelessly slaughtered by police officers thinking and acting with rose colored white biased glasses. We’re not going to change if we continue to allow ourselves to be segregated further.
