I know you may be pissed about the title, but something had to get your attention!!
ALL LIVES MATTER, BUT BLACK LIVES SEEMS TO MATTER THE LEAST TO EVERYONE INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE!!! WHY DO WE TREAT ONE ANOTHER LIKE GARBAGE? WHY DON’T WE VALUE LIFE?
Is it because this is a learned behavior pasted on from slavery, or it is because we don’t know how valuable we (African American) are to this country?
It pains my heart to turn on the television to see another young man, woman, and now children being killed…just because someone felt like taking a life, just because someone have decided not to work out the situation… just because someone is selfish.
Oh, you didn’t know that when you take a life…you must give a life. Yes, whether it’s yours, your child, your parent (s), your siblings, or your friend. When you comment murder…murder is what you get in returned. Even the Bible says, “If you live by the sword, you die by the sword,” Matthew 26:52b. There is a mark on your forehead…is that how you want to live?
It seems we don’t care about our race any more. Sure we have a few standing in the gap for the Black youth, but a few is not enough. We need mothers to start being mothers again. I don’t care how the media and people on the street say the fathers have to step up, which is true, but mothers set the tone for the entire family. Mothers are the foundation of the family; she show love and strength in time of opposition, she encourages in the time of disappointment, and she discipline with force because she loves her child…when that doesn’t happened the children become lost.
We are quick to protest for the killing of a Black man by Police but what about Black Men Killing Black Men? Answer that and this, why do the youth feel hate and not love? Why are we celebrating them coming from jail and not equipping them not to go? Why is every song about hate and murder and not grinding and living a dream…enjoying life? Why are we telling them they are stupid and dumb not precious and loved? Why do the young ladies think it’s cool to give their bodies to anyone and not know their bodies are valuable? Why are our youth preparing to die and not preparing to live? WHY Y’ALL… WHY?
Have you ever set and thought about what murder really means? It means a dream, a child, or/and a resource has been taken from Earth. Let me show you…
- Dream: The hopes of parents to see their child grow, graduate, marry, and have a career. The futures of seeing visions come to pass –stolen answer, “What you want to be/do when you grow up”? The dream of becoming a father or mother. This brings me to 2. Child.
- Child: A child isn’t born or is born but has to go through life never to have a relationship with that parent. Walking around with a face on a chain and not a hug around the neck, sporting a tee in memory of but not have memory of, or placing balloons on a street corner or tree but able to receive balloons from that deceased parent at celebrations. Giving us 3. Resources.
- Resources: Never given the opportunity to give a helping hand to their community by sharing their experiences. Not able to advise the future generation of the dangers awaiting them in the process of grown up, not getting the chance to change and show the next generation how they too can become successful.
It’s time to stop glorifying guns, murder, and hate; it’s time to lift up our communities.
NO ONE will feel BLACK LIVES MATTER…IF WE DON’T!!
