Age is just a number, Gender is just a label

They say your skin color doesn’t matter 

But now we’re yelling out Black Lives Matter

George Stinney 14 years, youngest to be executed

Rip Tamir Rice 12 years old , Breonna Taylor 26,

Eric Garner 27 , Sandra Bland 28 , Natasha Mckenna 37 ,

Tanisha Anderson 37, George Floyd 46

May they all rest in peace 

Each one of them unarmed , but now the color of our skin is seen as a weapon

In times like these silence is very heard

No we aren’t attacking , yes all lives matter

Black lives just need a little more help

Not all cops are bad 

Not all blacks are criminals

Not all whites are racist

There is no unity

Which doesn’t let Black lives have opportunities 

What ever happened to equality , acceptance , love , humanity ?

Since when do we make unequal things equal ?

Black lives matter , Black lives matter 

No justice , no peace

Protest are happening 

How do we turn a peaceful protest into a reckless riot 

Did Martin Luther King jr do no change ?

Did Rosa Parks do no change ?

Wasn’t Muhammad Ali inspirational ?

Wasn’t Nina Simone heard ?

I can’t breathe , I don’t have a gun stop shooting

I didn’t even do anything , you shot me you shot me ,

It’s not real , Please don’t let me die

Michael brown 18 , Sam Dubose 43, Oscar Grant 22 ,

John Crawford 22, Kimani gray 16 ,

The list goes on , Black lives matter

Give us a chance 

Listen to us 

Let us breathe

May there be peace , justice , love 

Instead of saying Let's make America great again

How about we try Let’s Make America not racist for the first time

All lives matter don’t choose which one your going to help,

help us all , Let’s be united 

Black lives matter

dude. the black lives matter is a thing because its nessacary. i dont nessacarily agree with the name(because its not just their lives that matter), but it is not like white people are being killed on the streets.
