“It’s also about Oscar.
It’s even about that little boy in 1955 who nobody recognized at first—Emmett.” - Angie Thomas
This is for many more people who’s black skin was seen as less than, or animal enough, or threatening enough to be put down as if they were ill-mannered dogs.
If this show has taught me anything, it’s that no matter what you do in life, people are going to have a problem with it. However, I am no longer here to appease anyone. I am going to speak and live out my truth and my beliefs and anyone who disagrees can kindly hit that unfollow button 🤷🏿♂️✊🏿 #blacklivesmatter#AmericanIdiot
