When I say #BlackLivesMatter that doesn’t mean that other lives don’t matter, it just means we are the ones that are in danger! This topic really touches my heart because I am African American. It feels as if these police shootings are targeted to kill young black men. It makes me feel unsafe and on edge because my father, cousins, uncles and people I am close to are BLACK.
Living in Chicago, you already have to be aware of gang shootings or being shot or stabbed because of an argument. PLENTY of innocent people have lost their lives due to gun violence. Babies, young adults and even the elderly are innocently losing their lives. This world is cruel and unjust. It feels as if the world is coming to an end, no one seems talk out their problems anymore they rely on weapons and/or result to violence.
7 years ago my great- great aunt was stabbed to death on the south side of Chicago and still we have NO JUSTICE! Killings are getting out of hand especially in Chicago! It seems as police are making killing people of color a hobby , there’s plenty of people police killed who haven’t been publicly recognized but for the ones you know I’m going to keep their name alive. I am Oscar Grant, Sandra Bland , Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Alva Braziel, Delrawn Small and BLACK LIVES DO MATTER!
