Being part of a country that stood by watching its own suffer by the hands of those with power and privilege made me resent the pride I had felt for America. I was no longer proud to be part of a nation that preached freedom, but met those words with empty promises. As protests made their way to New York City, I knew that I had to join in on the movement.

You’ve heard the chants. The voices that echo on the streets, calling out for those that could not live to this day to speak their justice. We’ve all seen the circulating message 
#JusticeforGeorgeFloyd everyday. But what have you done about it?

It was reported that around 42% of people were not aware of what’s happening in Yemen. Why does no one care? Why is Yemen a forgotten land?

The world faces so many issues regarding the service of justice, even in the Land of the Free. When they say Land of the Free, they actually mean free for the cops who murdered Breonna Taylor, and countless other perpetrators of police brutality and assault.

So what do females owe their success to? Why do their nations have lower death rates, and are able to reopen safely and rapidly? Why are their economies booming? How did they create more diverse societies? How do they combat opposition?

So I pose the question: What happened to the American Dream? What do you define as American? How hard do people have to work to earn the right to live? To be American?

So what really goes into a political campaign? We’re accustomed to seeing the final product after numerous people have given the go ahead on everything from photos to speeches to advertisements. But who are these people and how authentic are the things we are seeing?

Yesterday’s events have made it clear: America, the “land of the free,” is only truly free for white men. Trump has used his lies to protect and encourage his supporters, fueling hypocrisy and the maltreatment of all who do not serve him.

We learn about World War II in school, memorizing dates and battle names. But what we don’t learn about is who these people were. They had names, just like you and I. Six million of them. They had 6 million stories. Six million dreams. Six million lives. Here is just one of their names; one of their stories. It is impossible to put someone’s life into words, but through his story, we can keep him alive.

We view history as a timeline, a timeline of progress, and change. Typically, we analyze timelines because they tell us the leading aspects of an event: the cause, and the effect. As time progresses, so does our timeline.

 Taking the global stage and creating political performances, America has seen two impeachments of their sitting president, been hit by a worldwide pandemic, and finally started to grapple with its structural racial injustices.

What makes an American? Is it the apple pie? The obsession with reality TV? Is it the Coca-Cola consumption, or what about the ironic use of “goddamn” despite the country’s Christian roots?

Since 2017, over 2 million Uighurs have been detained in so-called “re-education camps”, where they are forced to pledge loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party, eat pork, drink alcohol or engage in other practices opposing their religion, as well as memorizing communist propaganda songs and learning Mandarin.

With the country experiencing 500 COVID deaths per day on average, gaps in income have only widened to leave Colombians frustrated and betrayed by their own government. And as protests escalate to demand change and the striking down of far-right President Ivan Duque’s tax reform, it only reminds Colombia and the world of Duque’s empty promises.
