Racism isn't getting worse, it's getting filmed

There’s a dark before the dawn.

When everything gets out, it’s a good thing.

It just sucks bad when the truth is out.

And I think it’s just a little darkness before the cleansing

that we’ll have as we move forward.

Will Smith (2016, July 28) - interview with Jimmy Fallon https://kurzelinks.de/ihya

No matter how nice and kind you are

No matter how smart you are

And how many degrees you may obtain

No matter all the good work

You may do for the community and for the world

Some people are going to hate you

Just because you exist

And you got to be able to deal with that

And then the video of George Floyd comes out,

And I don’t know what made that video

More painful for people to watch,

The fact that that man

Was having his life taken

In front of our eyes,

The fact that we were watching

Someone being murdered

By someone whose job is

To protect and serve,

Or the fact that he seemed

So calm doing it ….?
