MY OWN WITNESS:RUPTURE AND REPAIR
My name is Shontel and I love being black. I love everything about being black: the music, our hair and our culture just to name a few. However, it seems like lately America doesn’t seem to love black people as much. When we when we try to say our BLACK lives matter—-they tell us ALL lives matter. Which is hurtful because of course all lives matter, but black lives are the one being lost everyday at the hands of police brutality. I want America to see to black lives are important and to change it to all lives is silencing our voice.
