Black lives matter
How are you?
“I can’t breathe” was the last sentence pronounced by George Floyd, a black citizen American murdered by a white police officer. It is not the first time that something like this happens. I hope it will be the last time, but it is impossible to deny racism’s damages.
Unfortunately, in 2020, racism is still there. How is it possible to judge someone by its skin’s colour? Even if slavery has been abolished centuries ago, that racism ‘seed had never died in some people. What a shame!
Now, America is in the spotlight, but racism is everywhere even in the small details. I was shocked this year when I have seen at Limassol Carnival, some persons disguised with Afro hair. Personally, I find it disrespectful. Let me explain my point of view! I am an Afro-descendant, and what people use to disguise themselves at parties, is my natural look.
Are black people a joke for the others? Are we taken seriously?
Doctor Martin Luther King had a dream, many years later, the dream stills one. How can we make this world a better place? How can we kill that racism’s seed?
Despite this declaration of Human rights, people are still thinking that blacks are not humans. Despite all the laws that exist to promote a peaceful world, there is no compassion, no comprehension in this world. There is no equality, no fraternity, no solidarity!
However, there is hope. As they say, youth is the world’s future. If the young start to think and act differently maybe things will be better.
If all lives matter, black lives too! We should respect, accept, and love everyone as they are because love has no boundary.
Cheers to a better world!
