They say we care. Then shoot.

It’s not always bullets. It’s not always on purpose. People say that they support equality for everyone. They say that all people should Have the Same rights no matter what color your skin is. They say that love is love, that you should be able to be whoever you want to be and that shouldn’t affect your rights. That other shouldn’t look down or use negative messages or actions. Yet, sometimes their own actions are those they speak against. Sometimes the things they say are the most harmful, their actions are creating the most damage. It’s not always on purpose. Sometimes they’re just speaking or doing without a second thought. But sometimes they know exactly what they’re doing. And the words they said before was just facade for their own benefit. They wear masks that hide ugly truths.
