Keza bahunde 2004 (Maryland)

Race, race, race. How you mad that I have this color on my face? I don’t know if I’m speaking facts or not but I just want to put this out. I may be young and I still clung to my mom but I know that the world shouldn’t be like this. It shouldn’t be “ I killed cause I don’t like him”, it shouldn’t be “put your hands up” because I’m black and you don’t like it! I don’t know how to explain these actions because I am struggling to grasp them! Why can I see system racism at its finest? Is it because we’re still in the times where we’re struggling to thrive and survive? Because I think humanity is just fine since it has all this technology and time. I’ve wasted time trying to justify the actions of others, but now I realize that those actions are just plain murder. This free write taught me a lot of things and one of them is to never forget and forgive the acts that put a human to sleep permanently. #SayTheirNames that’s what everyone should say, yet people are too busy caring about their hair and Charlie D'amelio's whereabouts. I’m sorry if this comes out harsh but this is the world we live in, and I’m sick and tired of seeing people killing. Whether it’s black or white doesn’t matter to me, I’ll stand up for any things that hurt the minorities. Black, Muslim, Asian, Hispanic, all I see are beautiful creatures that have humanity.
