Fed Up: Black Lives Matter

By: Kiara Flowers 


We’ve heard the chants in the news and blogs, “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice, No Peace!”  Our anger has been screamed out loud for decades but somehow, we’ve gone unheard.  Police brutality is the cause of so many innocent lives lost.  We are angry and sad, and it may be portrayed as “violent” & “misconduct” to others that don’t understand our pain.  However, we have kept our composure for years and nothing changed.  Black people are fed up with the mistreatment!  Police brutality has a negative impact on society.  We lost so many lives to police brutality over the years and some probably aren’t even broadcast for the world to acknowledge.  However, we can continue to shine light on the fact that innocent black lives are being taken for careless reasons.  Let’s keep in mind that this is not a black versus white issue, it’s racist versus others.  Let’s learn to love each other and make the world a better place.  It Starts with us, the youth!
