I am Mike Brown. I am Tamir Rice. I am Eric Garner.
I am the fallen of my culture, my color, my characteristics.
I am the family of these victims, I am the friends.
I am the enemies who have wished death. I am not supremacy.
I am not the opposite of justice.
I am all of the individuals who have prayed for equality.
After all, we've only been praying for 150 years.
I am these walls if they could talk.
I would tell you that we are still institutionalized, undermined, labeled inferior.
I am the cries for help, that is me.
I am my mother, I am my father. I am my brother, and I am my sisters.
I am my ancestors, certainly.
Does our complexion resemble a bullseye?
Remember when we were conflicted?
I am not antagonist. I am positive vibes.
I am the villages, the valley, and the plantains.
I may disrespect. That is true.
But in a twisted way, I am still you.
