Dear friends OF ALL RACES, especially White friends--please just read this. Then you *might* understand why we are so angry. Why we are so very, very sad. Why this is about more than just Trayvon Martin. Why we feel hopeless. Why we despise those who misjudge us. Why we see no way out, around, above, or through this tangled web America has woven around us. You will never be afraid your child, husband, or father will be taken away from you just because of the way he looks. We have always been afraid. And always will be. The burden of being Black is that you HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS BULLSHYT EVERYDAY. Help us change this. Please. We're begging you. 

Be the change.
