TO ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS, NOW IS THE TIME. WE CAN'T STAY QUIET. WE CAN'T STAY SILENT. WE SIMPLY CAN'T.

SMALL PLATFORM IS BETTER THAN NO PLATFORM AT ALL. SO SPEAK UP ABOUT THIS MATTER. THE #BLACKLIVESMATTER MOVEMENT NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HUMANS, FOR FUCK'S SAKE. HUMANS. THERE'S ONLY ONE RACE. THE HUMAN RACE. AND IF YOU CAN'T SEE THE PROBLEM HERE, YOU ARE THE FUCKING PROBLEM.

"oh but i'm not american" AND YOUR FUCKING POINT IS? I AM FROM PORTUGAL. I AM WHITE. I HAVE BEEN SPEAKING UP. FACEBOOK. INSTAGRAM. TWITTER. AND NOW HERE. THIS NOT NOT AN AMERICAN'S PROBLEM. THIS IS AN EVERYONE'S PROBLEM. IF YOU CAN'T SEE THAT, AGAIN, YOU'RE THE PROBLEM.

MY VOICE, MY STRENGTH IS NOTHING COMPARED TO SOME PEOPLE I'VE SEEN. PEOPLE WITH BALLS. ACTUAL BALLS. EVEN WOMEN. BUT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I AM TIRED OF THIS BULLSHIT.

THIS IS AMERICA. AND IT'S NOT EVEN A QUARTER OF WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING OUT THERE.

why don't you care?

BUT if you cared enough to read my article, i hope you care enough to spread your word about what's right. it's not the time to stay silent about everything that has been happening. if you wanna check my twitter sevahcq, i've been sharing a lot of tweets with petitions you can sign to help us. it is okay if you can't donate, not everyone can. but you can share them, you can speak about what's happening. you can make a difference.

i truly hope you don't ignore what has been happening. if you wanna ignore my article, that's fine. but please, this is a serious issue.

to my fellow black brothers and sisters out there, just hang in there. it's hard, i completely understand. but times will be different. i know some of you may feel hopeless, but don't please. we will make a difference.

we don't only see you.
we don't only hear you.
we respect you.
we love you.
we fight for you.
and we will be your shield.

so don't give up. we will win.

no lives will matter until black lives matter.

thank you.
