Dear brothers and sisters
Dear brothers and sisters. Thank you for being strong, thank you for having a smile even in the worst times, thank you for showing me that fighting for our rights is worth it. And we have to keep going, and not only because they see us as less than humans, it’s because you teach me and you teach the world that being black is beautiful and perfect.
From where I come from, Colombia, in latin America. The, black people are almost invisible in the media, and because of that, it was difficult to find black success stories I could emulate. But American TV was there to help me keep going. There I found the power to dream. The African-American community of the United States became my role models and show me that my skin color is not an impediment to success in life.
Thank you for helping me keep my emotional and mental health up all the time, and thank you for giving me role models and hopes that I never saw where I came from. Thank you for showing the world that being racist is wrong.
Dear brothers and sisters, you were the only positive images I had, you were an inspiration to me, and you have the power to inspire kids for generations to come. The impact you are creating now around the world is huge… keep going
And always keep in mind You are alone, You are appreciated, You are important
And I love you even if some in this world tell us all the time they dont.
