An open letter to the U.S. Congress

REFORM THE POLICE SYSTEM

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

I know you know what's going on in our country right now. Don't pretend like you don't, or worst of all, don't dismiss it because it doesn't affect you. You should care regardless of whether it affects you. We all want justice for our brothers and sisters murdered at the cold blooded hands of the police system. We want to be able to live our lives without being scared of the police, the one group of people whose sole purpose is to protect the people, but don't include us as people. We want to live our lives and experience everything the world has to offer. Bottom line, we want to live in a world without the racism that this world is so blind to / accepting of. I know you have the power to make a difference, so please listen. We've been trying to have a life. We've tried for over 400 years to have a life. Its been so long that that struggle has been passed down to our children, their children, their children, and beyond. All we want it to be treated equally. We don't even want revenge for the lifetimes of hatred that we've endured; all we want is a life. Is that so hard? Apparently so, because with all the racists out in this world, we can't even attempt at doing so. And once again, THE ONE GROUP that's supoosed to protect us-- doesn't. So, are you going to help us change the world, and live out something so simple as a life? Or are you going to standby, and pretend like none of this is happening, and support a system that wrongfully takes away our lives, and let us suffer for another 400 years?
