Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter. For some reason this seems to be a subject of debate in today's society. It absolutely shouldn't be. I shouldn't have to be writing this page, but here we are. For centuries Black Americans have faced oppression and injustice. It is past time for that to change. We need to accept our Black countrymen as equals, and fight to ensure they are treated as such. We need to seek true justice for the victims of police brutality. We need to defund our overzealous police and pare them back into a force for good rather than a militarized force for the oppression of the masses. We need to destroy the culture of racism and corruption that plague our police departments. We need to destroy the culture of racism that plagues our society. In short, Black Lives Matter, and we need to act as such.
