16 unarmed African Americans were killed
16 unarmed African Americans were killed by police
16 were unarmed
16 had families
16 were killed by racism and fear
The 16 never got true justice.
These men and women were shot down by police, cutting their lives short and ripping them from their families at an unexpected time. The gun violence and police brutality has to stop. I am a senior at Carman-Ainsworth High School and I am reaching out to you and posting #BlackLivesMatter for change. The reason that this is important is because we as a community need to bring awareness to the injustices that African Americans are subject to everyday. Americans must take a stand, be brave, and fearless to say enough is enough.
