African Americans go through so much on a day–to–day basis. It is important that others get an understanding of the background behind the struggle the color of their skin brings. It is also a challenge living in this country where you are affected by being biracial as well. So many unarmed Black men being killed because they are seen as a threat when they are no more of a threat than men of any other nationality. The color of a human being’s skin shouldn’t have them feared to live life because they don’t know when it will be taken. We need to take a stand and end what should be history while acknowledging it never stopped. Racism has been going on for years, but Black people have had enough! Mothers of Black boys have had enough! Wives of Black men have had enough! Equality is key and not being afraid to live proudly in the skin you are in no matter what shade.
