When a system is built to consistently hold a people down, it is not built equally, fairly, or right. America was founded during a time when civil unrest led to one of the bloodiest battles in history, the American Civil War, where over 650,000 people shed their blood in defense for or against the institution of slavery. Today, it is 155 years since the Civil War, and we still have a system that is built to keep a people down. Lives have been lost on both sides, protests have been staged, riots have been had, and people have marched and stood up for their rights and the movement still has not been won.
Progress can only be made when we all stand up, United, to speak about the unethical behavior of people.
