AMERICA IS A RACIST COUNTRY. If you need proof, look no further than the George Floyd incident and the world’s subsequent reaction. If you need further proof look at the election of Donald Trump as President. If you need even more evidence, look at the January 6th Capitol riots and how barely any shots were fired at the rioters. Since George Floyd, there have been more police shootings against unarmed Black men. George Zimmerman is still walking free. And hundreds of thousands of Black men are in jail/prisons for nonviolent crimes.
I’ve been maced and handcuffed unjustly by the police. I’ve witnessed Black men get passed over for a promotion at work by a White man for a White man. I’m making minimum wage and I’m barely paying my bills every check. Sometimes I go to sleep at night with nightmares about how I’m going to make it. As Black men, we wake up everyday feeling like the system is against us. Then, we go throughout the day dodging land mines and trying not to get the police called on us for being ourselves. AMERICA IS A RACIST COUNTRY.
