They won’t listen, They won’t learn

p>People don’t like to listen and learn. In June the black lives matter protests hit an all-time high, and many people simply dismissed the issue because it wasn’t happening to them or the people they care about. They say it is unnecessary, but they do not take the time to learn what is happening, to learn about the racial injustices, to learn about the wrongful killings of black Americans, to listen to the cries of their co-workers, friends, piers. They don’t take the time to learn and listen, so they just dismiss the problem. when i try to help people understand they shut me out and say “they deserved it”, they don’t listen.
