Black Lives Will Always Matter

We need to be heard and we need to be seen!

Black Lives Will Always Matter

As Election Day is approaching us, everyone should know that voting is essential. Voting is a right that we must enforce this year, due to the fact that is one of the most important elections in history. People should use their voices and platforms to make a difference. Black Lives Matter is fundamental because many Black lives have been taken because of police brutality. I believe that people should read the facts and stop blaming the victims that are getting killed. Imagine calling the cops for them to help you, but they do not help you. Cops are supposed to be there for you no matter what skin color or ethnicity you are. Some Black neighborhoods do not call the police officers because they are afraid of getting murdered.

As we can see, the cops have been abusing their power with Black individuals; we need to make a difference and fight for what we believe in. We can see all the bad things that 2020 has brought to us. Lighting a spark on racial discrimination is important because there has to be a change. Most Black Americans need change because we are all human and our skin color should not define our treatment and who we are. The Black Lives Matter movement brought many ethnic individuals from different backgrounds together and made them go back to their roots. This movement is important for Black individuals to raise their voices because we need to feel safer and respected. They don't need people saying negative things about the movement because it is an opportunity for Black voices to be heard and seen. This movement is important and I feel that changes need to be made because it is 2020.

We are not during slavery nor segregation times, so this society needs to stop acting like we are. We need to unite forces for a better chance to make the world a better place. If someone does not know about a subject they should do their research and stop using stereotypes and opinions to bring down a race or a minority group.

Microaggressions are part of the issues because it proves that we need to educate ourselves about different cultures and stop dehumanizing other individuals for something that they can change such as their skin tone. Educate yourself by speaking to a friend, do your research, and donate as a way to raise awareness to assist the Black community.

So much is going on in the world, and every day I go to social media, watch the television, or hear the radio, and I listen to their names. So I want people to know their names and not blame these victims and not be disrespectful. They need their moment of justice and this article was written to do that. Some people need to wake up and realize that the Black community needs our support and this is a human rights issue.

Justice for Breonna Taylor, Elijah Mccain, George Floyd, Aura Rosser, Alton Sterling, Janisha Fonville, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and many more victims. SAY THERE NAMES. BLACK LIVES MATTER AND THEY STILL MATTER, SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT IS A TREND; NO, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT BLACK LIVES BEING TAKEN FOR NO REASON. LET'S MAKE A CHANGE NOW!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
