  "is it not crazy to think that this kid will only be seen as cute in photos cause now that he's full grown cute has gone out the window, media calls him a threat based upon how he looks their narrative couldn't be more clearer I call him a friend; he's a honest man, this man in the mirror..."

Dear Daddy,

my brothers & sister aren't the same color as me but that's by your design right? the world needs you as desperately as I need you & I need you even more desperately than the world because all though I'm not of the world I'm in this world that says blue lives matter that all live matters yet black lives don't? Weren't we all made in your image? Don't you command us to make disciples of all tribes & nations? They fight for the rights of animals at least the ones they care about I mean you can lose your professional career get sent to jail for fighting dogs yet they provide supplies to go hunting these days those that look like me Dad are treated less justly then the dogs killed because at least they're killers were sent to jail yet those that kill us seem to get a jail free card with paid leave... It hurts Dad the last positive media of us on tv was Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Cosby Show, Different World, Smart Guy, Proud Family... Why don't my "lighter" sisters & brothers let me hurt or even express? Why must they act like they know it all with the same information that I have yet anytime I make a statement I'm not seeing the "full picture" that's never given cause the news is slanted? Why don't they grieve when I do why can't we take a step in each other's shoes? Since when has opinion become facts & facts opinions? They tell me don't assume you don't have all the info but I never said I did in fact I understand where they're coming from because I place my self in their shoes to better understand there perspective yet I'm forced to only learn part of history from the books they use in schools they so quickly brush over the land that was stolen from natives or foundations laid by slaves ironically the flag they find so much pride in has never given us the full story yet I'm the one who gets called out for assuming? stating opinions not facts? Ahhhh sometimes I just wanna yell sock a punching bag go to the gym release the emotions of frustration confusion anger pain but even after all that I feel I haven't helped move us as humans move in the right direction... I'm inadequate to do so without you I need you daddy desperately... Help me... Please idk what to do as your son I can't even imagine what those who don't know you are experiencing its dark down here daddy but I know you have me here for a reason help me be the light you've called me too... I'm tired of hearing we need to pray more cause that seems to suggest to do less in this community Ima apart of but maybe we can pray more & do that which we are asking to get done is that so wrong? Thanks for listening Daddy I love you show me how to love me & love all my neighbors as I love myself

Sincerely,

A letter from a little broken heart
