Even though we speak the words of you can't breathe, he can't breathe, she can breathe, and they can't breathe, unfortunately the victory isn't a victory! As a whole we anit even whole. Every piece of the puzzle sits turned face down like Mr. Garner and Mr. Floyd on the ground. The suffocation of it all is the world is still scared to stand up for each other at the time of the crime. Why sit and watch someone die and infront of our faces the whole time. Mr. Floyd was executed in plain site, while we watched him take his last breath, did anyone bother to step in and make a distraction so the Officer can take that one knee off his neck. No, all we here is a chant, he can't breathe get up. But what about approaching the real problem of physical connection instead of standing beside looking at an distance. Holding our cameras up only lets us see how divided we are but watch how they unite to stay in control. They give you a little bit and take a lot and we still stand still wondering why we anit going no where. The victory of it all is that the film gives you visual of what the world has been through for decades on decades. The blood shed of it all is unbearable as we still watch our children die. If you can unite for the other race, why can't we unite for our own race. We can't even support our own children by just one share, but we continue to get on the case of the next race. Let that sink in! As we don't believe in this justice system, but we also letting our children think we don't believe in them. That same share you share for these killings, should be the same share you share for our Young Entrepreneurs. That same glory we give to the rachettness on social media should be that same glory we give for our youth's businesses. Some may say it's a choice ,well that race has the same choices we have and look their kids wealthy, got businesses, got the support, know how to make money on top of money! Why because they stick together and promote! Look at what they do even pay the higher positions to get their children into schools and we can't even click to share. It's free to share but it's not free to take another life because you end up in jail. This is for all the non supporters out their, who just like the drama of it all and don't look at the bigger picture of the children are the future. The sad part we watch the children fight and don't give two fu**s on who gets hurt until the oops take fire. It's sad all the way around! No one wins when a life is lost. The victory of it all is when we all unite and protect our youth future minds!
