Me and baby Jesus had a talk... he said keep going 🤘🏾 Update:
When you see a n*gga like me... Guyanese kid from Brooklyn, that shouldn’t even have made it to 21... plant both of his feet on Jerusalem soil... DRAPED down in silk, while my mother is still alive... you SALUTE a n*gga that let his dreams take him further than his skin would allow him to travel.
If all you see is oppression in this photo then you miss the opportunity in this photo. Ive never met a cop that I like, just like I’ve never met a prison that looked pretty.
I grew up only ever seeing photos of black men standing next to cops with their hands up or behind their backs in handcuffs. 🏾 My sons and daughters will see a different world because I would’ve made it better for them.
These cops look like the same ones that choked the life from Alton Sterling, same police who killed Michael Brown, the same organization that took Philando Castile from his family. I will ALWAYS be a black man in this world so I’ll probably always belong to a struggle where the people that look like me are oppressed and underrepresented.
So If all you see is oppression in this photo then you miss the opportunity in this photo.
