Because Breonna Taylor is Black

My name is NeCole

Even with the capital C it was too “white” for me

So I denounced it

I go by Christian

Because when people say my name

They have to acknowledge my God

My Jesus

Who are both Black by the way

And so when people call me by my name

I want them to imagine me or some woman like me that carried and birthed their Jesus

Because Jesus’ mama was Black too

In fact, according to science we all Black

Even you who don’t want to believe it

We all don’t get treated Black though

That’s evident

Because the white cops who killed Breonna Taylor still haven’t been charged for their crime
