Speaking Out | Supporting Black Authors

I want to start off this blog post by saying, please call me out if I say something wrong in this post, I do not want it to be wrong in any shape or form and just want to try and raise more awareness.

I think we’ve all heard about the murder of George Floyd, if you haven’t then please go read it up. Despite the fact the slavery ended black people are still being treated in the worst possible way. You’d think that in 2020 we’d be more accepting but we’re not. People are still racist and it’s fucking stupid, there are people out there raising their children to hate the blacks and it’s unfair.

Us white’s have too much say in the world and get away with shit that we shouldn’t do, all because we are white, however blacks can’t even look at someone and they’re in the wrong despite not doing anything and it’s disgusting. There’s so much injustice in the world and honestly we should all just love each other and not hate someone because of what colour their skin is, they are more than that, they have personalities, they are human.

It should NOT have taken George Floyd’s death to make people realise that this has gone on far too long. It’s not just the US in which this happens but all around us, just because America doesn’t have gun control does not mean other countries are not also killing blacks because of their skin colour.
