To be of many

Thu, 07/07/2016 - 14:37 -- Aminika

To be one of manyTo be one of many means that I walk around with a flaming red target on my back.And like the Bull you are you try to attack.To be one of many means that I can't walk into a store without your watchful eyes on my hands.To be one of many means me and my friends can't help but get pulled over due to driving while black.To one of many mean that my mother,sister, grandma,aunts and all the rest on the women and my life must pray for me every time I walk out that door. To be one of many means that death rate is higher than my graduation rate.
