The time has come for us to stand up as one to speak out against this inhumane treatment of Native Americans, protect a water source for millions of people, and to protect sacred burial grounds. Since I cannot make it to Standing Rock personally, I am doing everything that I can to spread awareness of what is happening there. Together as one, we can make a difference.
Anyone that has really paid attention to my blogging knows that I am not a fan of Black Lives Matter (BLM) because I feel that they further stress unnecessary racial tensions between people of African descent living in America and nearly every other racial group. Statements that the BLM founders have made rub me the [...]
If we are going to march against these injustices let us do so in daylight so that everyone can see our solidarity and hear our voices rise together as one. Let us not scream only one kind of life matters, but realize that each and every one of our lives matter and that we will come together as brothers and sisters to protect and care for each other.

Yet when someone tries to say #NativeLivesMatter they are ignored, mocked, or yelled at by the BLM movement (black lives matter) saying their lives matter, but they aren’t important enough to be addressed right now.

The average law-abiding citizen is left to struggle in a desperate attempt to keep their head above the water; while the rich continue to prosper from corrupted policies put into place by the [...]
