both so handsome and gone too soon.
you would think folks would be more emphatic during this murderous pandemic.
you’d think people would give a fuck about human life,
as the rona is showing how easy it can be taken away.
the last thing i’d ever be fonting about right now is black lives being lost.
ahmaud arbery and sean reed are the latest in senseless murders…
Ahmaud Arbery was out jogging in Brunswick, Georgia, when two white men hunted him down and murdered him two months ago. they are walking around free and have not been charged. Ahmaud was only 25 years old. His family deserves justice for this hate crime

“Sean Reed was killed by Indianapolis PD. He was on Facebook Live and kept streaming after they shot him. You can hear officers mocking him as he lay dead: “Looks like it’s gonna be a closed casket, homie!” A detective then ends the stream while trying to hide his face.”

stories like this really drain me.
would they have killed sean in a chase like that if he was white?
or would they have been running around like idiots until someone got tired?
i lost it when ahmaud hit the ground after being shot.
bawled more like it.
it was like he was fighting for his life with what little energy he had left.
i asked myself while watching that horrific video:
Should he have laid on the ground when they pulled out those shot guns?
i don’t know anymore.
simply don’t know.
white hyenas just see us and shoot to kill.
i bet if that was a white girl or a damn dog,
they would have passed a damn bill with the quickness.
it’s all so sad and leaves me with a heavy heart.
it’s gonna be a bunch of protesting and everyone will move on to the next scandal.
our government doesn’t care about a pandemic,
let alone black lives,
so at this point…
What can be done?
rip to both ahmaud and sean.
