I Am Black Lives Matter
By Amaya Tolliver
What Black Lives Matter means to me is;
Getting justice for innocent people whose lives have been taken away just for being Black.
Protesting to get treated equally just as every human being and knowing that white privilege is real and racism against Black people is here and need to get rid of it.
Standing up to get rid of the oppression that black people have suffered for 400 plus years.
Black people taking action to have the freedom and justice that black people deserve.
That every day when I leave my home, I know people will see my skin colour first, and make assumptions about me.
Having people knowing who I am beyond skin colour.
That I am Black, but I am also awesome, smart, and confident, and I am worth everything.
What Black Lives Matter means to me is, that I am Black Lives Matter.
