People are always judged by the color of their skin

From XXX to Everyone:2:22 PM
they just see our skin as a threat ..

From XXX to Everyone:2:23 PM
which is sad like whyy

From XXX to Everyone:2:23 PM
why though. I never understood it, it's just skin

From XXX to Everyone:2:24 PM
our voices needs to be heard

From XXX to Everyone:2:25 PM
When we use our voices we always get silenced so that's why were trying to be loud because we've been hurt too many times

From XXX to Everyone:2:25 PM
yes soo true

From XXX to Everyone:2:26 PM
it came to the point we have to destroy things

From XXX to Everyone:2:27 PM

From XXX to Everyone:2:28 PM

From XXX to Everyone:2:28 PM
I have two little brothers who are adopted from Ethiopia and I remember when the guy got shot on his run my mom said something about how it's sickening to think that she will never have to worry about my older brother who is white going for a run but for my little brothers people can think wrong things

From XXX to Everyone:2:30 PM

From XXX to Everyone:2:31 PM
a riot will speak more volume than a peaceful protest because the media is biased

From XXX to Everyone:2:31 PM
*cough* blm

From XXX to Everyone:2:31 PM
they are afraid of the power we hold and because of how arrogant they are they ignore us and use the way we live against. they think they silenced us but i don't think so, and i believe we just got started.
