Black lives matter. Not only in America, but all over the world. Everywhere in the world the black (wo)man is treated with less respect than everyone else, and is seen and treated as less than human. But why is this? Why us? Why do we have to suffer like this. We have to teach ourselves and our (future) children that we are so much more than what they make us believe we are. I grew up thinking I was ugly and not good enough to be who I wanted to be, just because I have brown skin. The schoolsystem, the media, society... make us believe that only white people can achieve goals in life. Only white people invented A B and C. Oh and black people? Black people were just slaves, but white people were so kind to give black people their freedom again... We need to know our history and read about it more, do research, and most of all, we need to love ourselves! This is what motivates me to make my parents proud, to give my siblings the example that they need to see, to make this world a better place, even if i can only change one single life. To show my future kids that they can be whoever they want to be. We are kings and queens, we just need to see it ourselves. #blacklivesmatter !
