Sound

Jaden Gray, Student Contributor

Sound…

 

Sound is a vibration that travels through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a persons or animals ear.

 

I am…

 

I am the young black woman who was denied her right to vote

 

I am the young white supporter was who killed at the front line of freedom

 

I am the two police officers one Asian one Latino who were murdered at the line of duty

 

I am the young black man who wanted a helping hand but instead got a bullet to the head

 

I repeat I am the young black man who wanted a helping hand but instead got a bullet to the head

 

But wait, then we fast forward and next thing you know we have Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile. All Black Lives that have been lost.

 

But yet we constantly say Black Lives matter, but we choose not to do anything

 

Well actually I take that back we choose to start killing police to get back

 

It’s almost as if we can’t be smart cause in reality if we all really wanted to stop this “racism thing” we would stop verbally

 

By using our freedom of speech

 

People saying oh yea there’s no more racism Martin Luther King stopped that

 

Noooo he didn’t stop it, but he did stand  up for us and start something that most of us humans were to scared to do

 

He did drastically change the whole world from what it used to be

 

But then us blacks kill each other day and night not caring about what our ancestors went through to give us our freedom

 

My Fellow people it’s time to stop the Violence, and Racism

 

Let’s make a sound That is unbreakable

 

Let’s be the sound

 

Cause Together We Are “The Sound”
