“Be polite, clear and respectful when asked a question, but otherwise, keep your mouth shut.”

I hear the grief stricken sobs!

“Do not argue, and speak only in English.”

I hear the screams for Justice!

“Keep your hands visible all the time”

I see the pain, the righteous fury!

“Do not move suddenly and explain any first move.”

I can turn this off, I can walk away.

“Do not make any physical contact and do not resist arrest.”

When will we listen?
When will we act?
How do we change this?
How do I change?

Until #BlackLivesMatter
How can we say all life matters?
