An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Bill of Rights or Bill of Slights?

8 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

When I was in fifth grade, there was a project where we had to learn all about the government, constitution, and then have a debate against a different team. Members of the government were also present. That was when I first learned the term, "I respectfully disagree." With respect, the world events of today against the black community are inconceivable, unconscionable, and blatantly unconstitutional. I shouldn't have to ask for the government to protect my rights. We the people shouldn't have to beg for you to follow the bill of rights laid down by the founding fathers. What happened to insuring domestic tranquility? Justice? What happened to checks and balances? What. happened. And whatever the answer to that question may be, I respectfully ask that you fix it. Being free in the "land of the free," shouldn't mean being freed from it entirely. Black people shouldn't only be able to find freedom in death. Respectfully, stop worrying about yourselves and do your job of worrying about others.
