I urge all of my sisters and brothers of the LGBTQ Community to stand with the Black community.
My new poem:
"Black Lives Matter... They Always Have and Always Will"
When a black man breaks the law
he's called a criminal
When a white man breaks the law
he's called a businessman or politician
When black people gather
they are called a riot
When white people gather
they are called a crowd
Black lives matter
they always have and always will
The problem is the language
The problem is the perception
