South Los Angeles
Sweet and docile,
Meek, humble and kind:
Beware the day
They change their mind!
In the cotton fields,
Beware the hour
It uproots trees!”
When are our out pours and our cries of pain ever going to resonate in a way that causes social climate change? How many platforms and strides of resiliences do we as a people need to possess to be treated as human beings? When will the black and brown bodies claimed everyday due to systemic oppression be held up with dignity. As well as the lives and voices of our officers.
This unhidden and ongoing war haunts us every damn day. Fighting everyday literally feels like putting a knife up to America’s neck, “asking what’s it gon be? Will it have to be an uproar and revolution of the people in the streets?”
Im super perplexed. pissed of.
and emotional about everything.
every tear shed.
every life lost.
every form of destruction that has been casted amongst my people.
Im building on my ideas and using this energy as a focal point to fight and push for change. but i feel like im running out of ways to fight!! Collaborate together.
FLOOD THE STREETS of your communities. MAKE CALLS to city councils and officials. SIGN Petitions. Let your outrage. Depression. Fear. Anxiety. Be heard. As my sister said @sixfiftyone “No politician has any incentive to shake the status quo”! We can heal 400+ years of pain on as a people. One unified Conscious group of people that choose to stand hand in hand together.
