Dear Future President: November 4, 2016
The issue I wish to speak about is how people treat black lives. Why don’t people care about black lives? The racists can't think as if they are anything. Black lives matter to humanity. We should care for them. They are just equal to any human being in this world. Black lives are important to continue humanity. The problem is why don’t they care about black lives. We should open our eyes, open and see what is happening to them.
Look what is happening; black people are just getting shot because no one cares about black lives. American police already have killed twenty-five percent of black people. According to Mapping Police Violence, the police have killed more than 100 black lives. Michael Brown's last words are “ I don’t have a gun. Stop shooting”. He expressed his feeling before he died, that shows that he really didn’t do anything. According to Negus Whoread, George Zimmerman was not arrested for a month after killing an unarmed 15-year old. Darren Wilson was not weary for shooting Mike Brown. He did not even feel bad about it.This shows that people aren’t getting punishment for doing this. Which is so unfair. Police are killing them as if they are flies. Which they are not. They are just like every one of us. They have a life.
Therefore the police have killed a lot of black people like Michael Brown, Eric Garner and, Rekia Boyd. None of them did anything wrong. None of these polices officers are sent to jail or lost their jobs, which is so unfair to the human nation. The police officers should think if they were in that black person’s spot how would they feel? They would feel hurt. Truly I’m saying black people are so patience. They didn’t fight back thats how patience they are.how would their little children feel when their parents die. They would be orphans. Living without a mom or dad is a terrible life. That’s what everyone should think in this country.
Martin Luther King tried to help. He tried to make everyone brothers and sister;s. For example, live like a family. He gave long speeches so people can open their eyes. Instead of following that someone shot him. They really don’t even care about it. A Lot of people tried to help this maybe you can try to help.
In conclusion , this problem needs to be fixed. Black people are afraid of this. My opinion is that we could do to save black lives is whenever someone harms or kills black lives they should get arrested, even if it is the police. My opinion is that black lives are being hurt. It will bring fear to those hearts who did this, and they will not do this again. God made us equal and fair, we should live like that. I really ask if you can really help this problem.
