THIS.IS.AMERICA.

You take your racist trump, you listen to your BS media, you watch the edited bodycam videos, I will watch this more relevant, more honest version of America.

THIS IS AMERICA.

America is not the land of the free right now, it does not want your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free.

America no longer cares about the Civil Rights movement.

“There are those who are asking the devotees of Civil Rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality; we can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities; we cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one; we can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating “For Whites Only”; we cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro in Mississippi cannot vote, and the Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No! no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream…” Martin Luther King August 28th 1963.

56 years ago this was said and if you look around sadly not much has changed.

THIS IS AMERICA.
