Black lives matter... I suppose everyone is talking about it so I'm giving my thoughts here. I suppose I better delve a bit into my past first. I grew up in a very rasist household. For years it was just me and my Mother (Father passed away when I was young). My mother was a very rasist person, she would often tell me that 'Asians should go back to Korea' or 'Packies should run their scams elsewhere' or 'The black people should go back to farming cotton' while I was growing up. She said that my Father was even more rasist than her and that she wants me to be like him so instead of being myself, I tried to be like him, I had rasist thoughts alot due to this way of growing up. She would plant seeds in my head and I would let them grow. It didnt help that when my Grandfather (Dads side) Visited us, he would also be quite rasist. It wouldn't be until I reached the age of 12/13 when I realised these thoughts were wrong.I know these thought are wrong however I still cant help but think about them from time to time as it the way I grew up. Every life matters, I dont care if your Black, White, Asian, Hispanic etc. As a caucasian I know the racism is bad and yet it still dwells on society. For centuries, we have mistreated people of other ethnicities and that needs to stop. We have ended up going back to a time where coloured people must protest to protect themselves because they dont feel safe, something that should be long forgotten. With the way the world is going on, we can only hope that this ends, that everyone can feel safe and secure. If your reading this then you are as alive as I am, you are a living and breathing machine and dont let anyone take that away from you. To conclude, while I still struggle with rasist thoughts, even I know that every life matters and I hope that everyone knows that and if they dont, they better. In the end we are all alive and no-one should take that away, especially if its because of your ethnicity.
