WHY DO WE CONSTANTLY NEED TO PROVE OUR RIGHT TO LIFE, EVEN TO OURSELVES? This week we were again bombarded by the painful truth that we are still worth nothing. The proclamation of nothingness grows louder with zero shame, not by the years, historical events or incidences but by the seconds of each day. It’s right there, shamelessly shoved in our faces, clear as day for all of us to see and yet, we’re so desensitized, we scroll passed our pain. Is this content not popular enough for you? Collins Khosa of Alexandra, South Africa was tortured and murdered – for NOTHING. A man we know very little of except that his name is now synonymous with the regular injustices so easily given to us. Generations of trauma, pain and abuse on every level has the black man hating himself so much, his right to life is revoked, by his own, as if it were never significant. His life, Sbusiso Amos, Adane Emmanuel, Petrus Miggels, George Floyd and every black man, woman and child in history from whatever part of the world who’s significance was killed, for NOTHING. It’s extremely painful when it is our own killing ourselves, Punishable by mere dismissal, suspension or being fired. When will it end? What will it take? Where is our fight? Does this generation, ours, have what is takes to open the blind eye and do what is right by us? What the hell should we do? I’ve signed a petition for the Justice of Collins Khosa, followed by an email sent to complaints@ipid.gov.za – please feel free to copy the email as I did the same as seen on @nirvananokwe’s twitter timeline. If we don’t do anything, who will? 💔 #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForCollinsKhosa #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #JusticeForBlackLives
