This is not the time to cower in a corner.
As my dad would say, "All the world loves a fighter, not the man who lies down bravely to die, but the man who fights like hell to live."

#BlackLivesMatter- We having nothing to lose but our Chains
People of color and Black people have been oppressed and suppressed by white privilege and white supremacy.
We have nothing to lose but our chains of oppression from last 300 years+ even as we have a white nationalist president sitting in the White House. So it time to march for Freedom and say our brother and sisters of color can no longer be oppressed and suppressed and as we lose our chains in unity.
We say "We are free FOREVER"
