You know what saddens me? It's sad that today racism still exist and us black people still have to fight for people to appreciate us. It's just sad. When I first saw this video it truly broke my heart because now the future generation is seeing the trials we deal with and feel the need to speak out about it. No, I don't know this girl but I was still proud of her because she had the courage to speak up and share her feelings about what's happening around her.
In addition, everything she said was right. We do need our mothers and our fathers. She should not have to feel this way. Her heart hurts and my hurts for her. Black lives matter because we are the ones constantly targeted for being who we are. Why be hateful to another race because of their skin color? Every time you look at the news another black man or woman becomes a hashtag. If we continue to let stereotypes beat us or believe we can not rise above these issues of race and we will be stagnant in our thoughts believing we can not do something when we can. Anything that you want or believe in can happen as long as you are determined. When there is a will there is a way.
