[In the wake of the Donald Trump’s response to the BLM Protests

across America]


What would You know about suffering & pain; to be able to comprehend why the streets are filled with ignored rage. Privilege blocks your grasp but do you have a heart Mr. President? Could You watch 9 minutes of life taken were it your Son’s or daughter’s life that was leaving this Earth cruelly? Then why is it so hard to get that this injustice must be put right..


You, like those that took George’s life swore to serve & protect at the pleasure of the people that make up this land of red, white & blue, yet you all abuse the very honour of the oaths you took. You’re not saving lives, their dropping like flies, because truth be told as things unfold, it’s proved You’re not qualified. You can’t empathise to feel a mother’s pain or a child’s loss, that pure and simple means you can’t be the Boss.


We trusted You, and look where that got us? Bodies rotting on the streets & George murdered in front of our very eyes like all the other black lives You and the Boys in Blue failed to protect.....And You have no regret? Noble men before You knew without being told, the right thing to do.. and did it. But We apparently ‘voted’ for You!


America needs an American President that stands for its Constitution, and can, when needed recognise and sympathise with the pain of its citizens. That enacts change the uplifts it’s future generations and unifies it so we never see what happened to George happen ever again. Unite Americans, white, black and any other race that built America of it’s back. This is your Moment, Your time to vote and enact the change that corrects this heinous crime.
