What they saw. What we are.

They saw what they wanted.
Fists in the air,
Panthers in the Ghetto,
Invaders in the schools.
They denied what we are:
Men.
Women.
Children.
People wanting freedom.
People striving for equality.
People deserving Life, Liberty, and Property.
All of which they denied us.
Now we demand,
Demand the right to live,
To live Free.
