At 16 years old, I left my home country to accomplish my dreams and start my career. Throughout my 10 years abroad, I made some amazing friends, shared some of my best life moments, but also lived in a DAILY fight against racism, that often felt like a nightmare. 3 years and some months ago, events led me to return home and play in my country. As much as I love my country and the opportunity to play here, not much has been different socially. No matter how many languages I speak, how cultured I am, how much I’ve educated myself, how much love I spread, my daily battles remain the same. The deaths/killings are a small, yet bold fraction of what myself and those who look like me deal with on a DAILY basis. If a man can be killed in broad daylight, what do you think happens in the professional workforce? When we walk into stores? When cops racially profile us? When you hide your purse in the elevator? When you dismiss us all as drug dealers, upon appearance? When you only treat some of us well, because of our professions? We do not request pity. We do not need apologies. We want change. We want equality. I love every single person on this earth (even those that have done me wrong), but I too STAND today, exhausted. I pray you all are safe, and I pray for the hearts of the wicked. I love you all, God bless ✊🏾#gazelle #blacklivesmatter
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”— Eddie Munjoma (@EddieMunjoma) June 4, 2020
