If Only

If only injustices enraged you as much as someone refusing to pledge allegiance to a flag enrages you. If only it mattered to you that human lives are not valued they way animals lives are valued. If only people's stolen lives and names are not celebrated through trending hashtags the way a television show's premiere trends. If only the heritage of group mattered the way people scream the Confederate flag's heritage matters to them. If only black lives mattered to you like the first and second amendments matters to you. If only you loved blackness the way you love red, white, and blue. If only you could speak out against injustice of your fellow man the way you speak up for patriotism. If only tomorrow or the next day, or the next, I didn't have to see another video of another life taken away. #BlackLivesMatter
