Dear Breonna Taylor,

Today was not a victory!

Did I expect the cops who murdered you to be charged to the fullest extent of the law? No. However I did hope that the Attorney General Daniel “Uncle Tom” Cameron would at least, do the very minimum but he barely did that. We’re tired B. Protests, no matter how civil, riots, no matter how destructive, nothing seems to get through. I am not sure, even if we were to start fighting back in the same manner in which we are killed, would that bring peace … but we both know it wouldn’t. Today, after I heard the news, I asked my friends, where could I live in which my beautiful brown skin would not be seen as a threat? The only response, “Not on Planet Earth”, and I am inclined to agree.

I am angry for the life you had to live but will never get the opportunity. All the plans you might’ve made, all the things you looked forward to, and now, your light has been extinguished. Whats worst, the justice system isn’t even trying to right this wrong. Who takes the accountability? Who falls on his sword? Apparently Uncle Tom doesn’t believe ANYONE is responsible. How much is a black life worth? Obviously not much. Breonna Taylor you are loved sis, you’ll forever live in the hearts of those who loved & knew you. But you’ll always remain in the hearts of those who didn’t. Justice Failed You B.

Tristan Jonez.
