I didn’t sleep until 5am this morning. I feel completely drained. As I deal with one horrific story in the news, another hits me over the head with a fire extinguisher… Like the one that was used to kill Uwa after being raped in her place of worship. The news almost feels similar to a bullet piercing through me as I come to terms with the fact that the police may never be our friends, just look at what they did to 16 year old Tina and so many others. I mean, the amount of bad news in the world right now is suffocating, it almost feels like I can’t breathe…the pain in my chest…you would think that there’s a knee pressing down on my neck blocking the very thing that keeps me alive….I’m gasping for air. George Floyd did not deserve that. We do not deserve the continuous hatred we receive from our own people as well as those who simply hate us for the colour of our skin. We are not only battling coronavirus, we have other epidemics and just like the virus, the numbers keep rising. We are battling police brutality, sexual predators, pedophiles, rape apologists, racists, murderers and terrorists. These are all epidemics but unlike Coronavirus, you are not required to cover your mouth in order to survive…you are required to use it! Do not be silenced! We need SCAPEGOATS, we need justice! #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForTina #JusticeForUwa #RapeIsACRIME #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
