BLACK LIVES MATTER

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE

   BLACK LIVES MATTER. I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND BUT I STAND! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. WE’RE NOT TRYING TO START A RACE WAR, WE’RE TRYING TO END ONE. IF YOU’RE NOT ANGRY, YOU’RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION. END POLICE BRUTALITY. Respect Existence or Expect Resistance. SAY THEIR NAMES. STAY SAFE EVERYONE. #BLM. #ASIANS4BLACKLIVES. BLACK GENOCIDE 1619 - ? IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT IS DONE. IF WE ALL PULL A “VIRGIL” WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WHITE SILENCE IS VIOLENCE. BLACK LIVES MATTER. AS LONG AS POLICE EXIST BLACK INDIGENOUS AND OTHER PEOPLE OF COLOUR WILL CONTINUE TO BE TARGETED. THERE COMES A TIME WHERE SILENCE IS BETRAYAL. BLACK CHILDREN WOMEN MEN LIVES MATTER. IT HAPPENS HERE TOO REGIS KORCHINSKI P. CHANTEL MOORE.

ONE RACE HUMAN RACE.

 

 

 

COLOUR IS NOT A CRIME. I STAND WITH YOU. NO JUSTICE NO PEACE. BLACK LIVES MATTER!!! Defund The Police. AM I NEXT? TRUDEAU WHAT’S GOOD?? DO YOU WANT MORE BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS? DON’T SHOOT! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH BLM. I can’t breathe. ONE RACE HUMAN RACE. Who polices the police? NEW POLICIES TO END POLICE BRUTALITY AND SYSTEMATIC RACISM!!! I STAND WITH YOU. STOP KILLING US! START PROTECTING US. Don’t be Karen Be ALLY. NAH._ROSA PARKS, 1955. OFF MY NECK. BLM. FUCK RACISM. IF NOT NOW, WHEN? WE MATTER. HUMAN RIGHTS AREN’T DEBATABLE. STOP KILLING US. SAY THEIR NAMES. NO LIVES MATTER UNTIL BLACK LIVES MATTER. WE HAVE A DREAM. LGBTQ LIVES MATTER. INDIGENOUS PEOPLE FOR BLACK LIVES. RACISM ISN’T ONLY AMERICA’S PROBLEM IT HAPPENS HERE TOO.

Why is ending RACISM a debate?

 

 

JUSTICE and PEACE for BLACK PEOPLE. The System Needs to UPGRADE. ALL LIVES CAN’T MATTER UNTIL BLACK LIVES MATTER. Why is ending RACISM a debate? I AM NOT BLACK BUT I SEE YOU! I AM NOT BLACK BUT I HEAR YOU! I AM NOT BLACK BUT I FIGHT FOR YOU! EVERYONE VS RACISTS. THE NEW RACISM IS TO DENY THAT RACISM EXISTS. IT’S UP TO ALL OF US. Racism Is Small Dick Energy. Skin color IS NOT reasonable suspicion #stopprofiling. KKK LIVE AS POLICE #BLACKLIVESMATTER. BLACK LIVES MATTER. NO JUSTICE NO EQUALITY NO RESPECT NO PEACE.

BLACK PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY SAYING “STOP KILLING US” AND THERE ARE PEOPLE SAYING “BUT…”

 

 

 

helping someone else through difficulty is where civilization starts. DO NOT REMAIN SILENT. SILENCE IS VIOLENCE. WHO DO YOU CALL WHEN COPS KILL. SILENCE IS COMPLICITY. It’s a Privilege to LEARN about Racism instead of experiencing it! AGAINST POLICE TIRANNY. HOW MANY WEREN’T FILMED? VIOLENCE, BRUTALITY IT’S THE SAME STORY JUST A DIFFERENT NAME. YELLOW PERIL SUPPORTS BLACK POWER. ASIANS 4 BLM. HOW MANY MORE? MOM SAYS “I CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE STILL FIGHTING.” BLACK PEOPLE ARE LITERALLY SAYING “STOP KILLING US” AND THERE ARE PEOPLE SAYING “BUT…” STOP POLICE “WELLNESS CHECKS” RIP CHANTEL MOORE.

A THREAT TO JUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE. FREEDOM is NEVER given by the OPRESSOR IT MUST BE DEMANDED BY THE OPRESSED. didn't Mama teach you to PLAY NICE__ NO! TO POLICE BRUTALITY. RACISM IS A PANDEMIC TOO. TOGETHER WE STAND. IT’S NOT OK! QUEBEC IS SYSTEMICALLY RACIST. A BADGE IS NOT A LICENSE TO KILL BLACK PEOPLE. USE YOUR WHITE PRIVILEGE TO END WHITE PRIVILEGE. NO JUSTICE NO PEACE. YOU’RE LUCKY WE WANT JUSTICE NOT REVENGE.

RACISM IS STILL THE BIGGEST PANDEMIC.

KNOW JUSTICE KNOW PEACE NO JUSTICE NO PEACE. JUSTICE POUR FLOYD. WHERE IS THE HUMANITY? STOP BRUTALITY HATRED AND RACISM. Justice for Regis & George. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO BE NON-RACIST WE MUST BE ANTI-RACIST. Black Lives Matter. RESPECT BLACK LIVES LIKE YOU RESPECT BLACK CULTURE. NO FREEDOM TIL WE’RE EQUAL. WE HAVE THE Right to LIVE FREELY As Much As You ! BLACK LIFE MATTERS. Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about things that matter -MLK. IMAGINE KNOWING THAT SOCIETIES VIEW YOUR BODY AS DISPOSABLE. STOP INTIMIDATION TIME FOR ACTION NOT WORDS. I’M NOT A TARGET. “The MASTER’S tools will NEVER dismantle the master’s HOUSE” –Audre Lorde. RACISM IS STILL THE BIGGEST PANDEMIC. BLACK LIVES MATTER.

THE TIME IS ALWAYS RIGHT TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT. WE March y’all mad WE speak y’all mad WE DIE y’all silent. 400 YEARS Google it. NO LIVES MATTER UNTIL ALL LIVES DO. SMOKE WEED INSTEAD OF KILLING BLACK PEOPLE. ANTI-RACIST IS A CODE WORD FOR LOVE. RACISM is the worst kind of VIRUS. WHOEVER DEFENDS RACISM YOU ARE a HOE. CAN WE JUST FKG LOVE EACH OTHER. ‘MATTER’ is the MINIMUM. VEGAN BUT, FUCK PIGS. ALL HANDS ON DECK TAKE YOUR KNEE OFF OUR NECKS. SOME JOBS CAN’T HAVE BAD APPLES. IF YOU AREN’T ANTI-FACIST THEN WTF ARE YOU? I’M NOT BLACK BUT I SEE YOU I HEAR YOU I MOURN WITH YOU I WILL FIGHT WITH YOU.

WHEN OUR SKIN IS A WEAPON, ARE WE EVER TRULY UNARMED?

 

 

 

MY SKIN COLOR IS NOT A CRIME. ACCOUNTABILITY RESPONSIBILITÉ. Eric Garner 43 -Allegations on selling cigarettes Tamir Rice 12 Playing with TOY gun How many more will we lose until the POLICE are STOPPED Say Their Names. I AM SORRY I AM SO LATE. IF YOU’RE NOT LIVID YOU’RE NOT LISTENING. BLACK LIVES MATTER BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER BLACK CHILDREN MATTER BLACK LOVE MATTER. WE ALL HAVE A STORY TO TELL. SILENCE IS VIOLENCE. I UNDERSTAND THAT I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND, HOWEVER, I STAND. LESS BULLIES MORE LOVE. NO FREEDOM TIL WE’RE EQUAL. LEGALIZE BLACKNESS. IF YOU DON’T STAND 4 SOMETHING YOU’LL FALL 4 ANYTHING. NO PIGS NO BEEF. Protect our BLACK WOMEN. WHEN OUR SKIN IS A WEAPON, ARE WE EVER TRULY UNARMED?

"PLEASE I CAN’T BREATHE."

PLEASE “I CAN’T BREATHE. God is love The more we remove Him the more we will perish into hate! DON’T SHOOT!! I SEE YOU I HEAR YOU I STAND WITH YOU. INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE. STOP TELLING US EVERY COP ISN’T BAD, START TELLING THEM EVERY BLACK MALE iSN’T A THREAT! TOGETHER we stand DIVIDED we fall. I WILL NO LONGER BE PASSIVE IN THE FACE OF SYSTEMIC DISCRIMINATION. BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL. …just another day in AmeriKKKa. TUPAC: “I SEE NO CHANGES ALL I SEE IS RACIST FACES.” WHEN THE POWER OF LOVE OVERCOMES THE LOVE OF POWER THE WORLD WILL KNOW PEACE. More Scared of a RACIST World Than a pandemic. FIGHT IGNORANCE WITH FACTS.
