Thank you to everyone that’s ever supported this page. I just wanted to say some things that have been on my mind. With everything that is going on it truly is sad time. Personally, being a black man, I was always taught that I had to work 2x as hard to earn anything and I can honestly say that, that is true. With all these riots and protests going on, I do acknowledge that it is time for change. Too many times in the last few years deaths of men like George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, and Ahmad Arbery have taken place and it’s disappointing to watch stuff like this occur. It’s definitely time for change. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t support the looting and violence, but something must be done.
With me being in college, I go to a mostly Caucasian school that black people take up 3% of 70,000+ students and my school has a statue of a slave owner in the middle of our campus that is supposed to stand for good luck. Before I came to Texas A&M I had people tell me about how it does have some racist history and I was aware of it. From the bottom of my heart, I love my school, and I’ve met some of the greatest people I’ll ever meet. From my friends at 12MP and friends I’ve made over the years, I love you dearly. Things I have seen and been through in my 21 years, just shouldn’t be tolerated. Society has always had these problems and they have been ignored for far too long. There’s been times where I have been called the N-word right to my face, both with hard R and with an A. I’ve always felt that I just had to take it and accept things. I’ve seen some crazy things and been told some crazy things, but I just pray and know God got me. What the cop did to George Floyd was wrong, but I know there’s some really great cops out there. I want change just as much you, but if you are out there protesting, be careful and PROTEST FOR A REASON. I’m thankful for those that are working for change in a positive way, and those that have taken a stand. I know God has a plan for this country and we have to do our best to follow his plan, all of us.
I apologize if I offended anybody in anyway. I really just wanted to say how I felt. If you want to unfollow me go ahead, it won’t hurt me.
