I Matter, My Life Matters, Black Lives Matter

Memorial Day, a day started in the 1800s by African Americans to honor their fallen soldiers. It morphed into a national holiday as a day of respect for all fallen soldiers. Instead of being a day of respect, honor, solemnity, and family togetherness, this day started with an extreme act of violence when #CentralParkKaren called the police on a Black man who asked her to obey the law and put her dog back on leash. Thankfully Christian Cooper has his life and Amy Cooper (no relation) no longer has her dog, her job, nor her reputation.

George Floyd

Sadly, things did not go that well for George Floyd in Minneapolis, who lost his life when a group of police officers decided to Take a Knee on his neck and publicly lynch him. His crime, he allegedly forged a document, which is code for paying with a check while Black. Regardless if he did or did not commit a crime it was a non-violent offense and did not warrant a violent response from 4 armed police officers.

Those cops killed George Floyd in broad daylight, in full view of the public, with cameras rolling, because folks that is the face of evil and that is the ugly world the GOP and the 45th president of the United States perpetuate.



Pastor Jason Nelson My response to living in a world where I’m considered less than. My black family matters. #AhmadAubrey #BreonnaTaylor #GeorgeFloyd Creatives, continue the conversation. @kenhemusic piano I can’t breathe Let me live. There’s more to my life than this. When will my life be considered equal. I can’t run. I can’t sleep. Why can’t I walk down the street. Everyday it feels like there’s another sequel. My life matters. Why do you see a threat? My life matters. You judge me and we never met. So much inequality. Racism. Police brutality. I matter. My life matters.
