Wake Up by Charles Haley
Did it take George Floyd to die, for us, all races to stand as a group? There has been injustice going on towards Blacks for years, are we finally fed up? Are we now done turning our heads, giving the blind eye to the wrong doing of my people? Hasn't this been going on since the early 1600’s-1900’s? And now after 150 years they decide to make June 19th (Juneteenth) a national holiday? Even then, back in the day, when they was suppose to free us, they were still 2 years late.
And the riots…we finally lashed out so strong! Was it because of George or was it because the Covid-19 lockdown the reason we went so hard? Tired of being kept in the house on wait phase for a cure that we are not even sure they going to have.
Or is it a extermination to my people, since our rate of catching it and dying from it are higher than other races are catching it and dying also but not like my people. Law enforcement killing us and the virus too… can we win? What’s next America? What else are you going to do to my people? Are you going to die alone? Or are we going to stand together? My people, wake up!!!! It’s time to open your eyes …NO more silence. Speak up!!!!
