Black Lives Matter!

Social media is such a valuable tool when it comes to spreading messages, creating alliances and bringing communities together to fight for humanity. But, it’s also full of ignorant, cruel, close-minded individuals who refuse to open their minds to the pain of others. It is full of individuals who refuse to understand how they are also a part of the problem. 

It’s not enough to say you’re not racist, you should be ANTI-RACIST! 

We live in a world where the people that are meant to protect us are doing the exact opposite, they’re abusing their power and disregarding human life.  The black lives matter movement has been neglected for too long! If we don’t try to educate ourselves and the people around us, if we don’t demand change within our societies, then when will this stop?! When will we see a government and a justice system that does not discriminate against people of colour?!  How many generations have to endure this suffering?!

It is our job to educate ourselves.

I know I have a lot to learn myself, and I know that many people within the Asian community also have a lot to learn. 

We must keep talking, We must keep showing our support, and more importantly, we mustn’t stop until we see change!
