Today is the day that black lives matter.
How many people care?
How many people celebrate and don't care about
the fact that us black people are here,
on this earth with the rest of them?
We need to speak up with our thoughts
and what we think should be right. It isn't fair how
many whitepeople don't like you or me.
What did we do? Why do you dislike us?
This needs to be about black people.
Don't have a white person speak for us.
We need to speak for ourselves.
I am black and I am hurt. I am hurt by
the fact that I was so happy to go somewhere for
Black Lives Matter, just to find that a white person was
speaking for us about speech.No black person in the room
except for a small portion of students (including me).
We don't need to fix our speech or anything about ourselves.
A white person shouldn't speak for us, we NEED to
speak up for ourselves! This will be my small protest, but
I am not finished. I still have a lot in my mind and
I can't get over how irritated and hurt I am.
But that won't stop me at all. My friends agree with me
and some are white. I'm placing what I think is right in
this little poem, but I'm just beginning here. I'm not
going small, but I'm going down through what's right.
As always say, go big or go home.
I'm going BIG.
