I’m angry. And I have a right to be. Because ain’t nobody fighting hard enough for our EQUALITY. 

 

Every time I turn around theres another black man or woman lying cold in on the ground. Maybe I should stop turning around, huh? Or maybe when we raise our hands towards the sky you aren’t so 

 

Quick to shoot. No justifications. No second guessing. No fair warnings.

You aren’t angry enough yet.
