Men and boys killed by police. I can’t breathe. Impunity for the killers – no justice, no peace. I can’t breathe. Militarized police met peaceful protesters on their knees. I can’t breathe. Weapons of war – a show of force on our streets. I can’t breathe. Disenfranchised youth driven to violence as speech. I can’t breathe. Cynical media think this makes great TV. I can’t breathe. This cowardly Congress afraid of losing our seats. I can’t breathe. Half-hearted reform when there’s more that we need. I can’t breathe. Just thinking about the despair that this breeds. I can’t breathe. Black lives matter. Hear my pleas. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. I yield.

Men and boys killed by police.

I can’t breathe.

Impunity for the killers – no justice, no peace.

I can’t breathe.

Militarized police met peaceful protesters on their knees.

I can’t breathe.

Weapons of war – a show of force on our streets.

I can’t breathe.

Disenfranchised youth driven to violence as speech.

I can’t breathe.

Cynical media think this makes great TV.

I can’t breathe.

This cowardly Congress afraid of losing our seats.

I can’t breathe.

Half-hearted reform when there’s more that we need.

I can’t breathe.

Just thinking about the despair that this breeds.

I can’t breathe.

Black lives matter. Hear my pleas.

I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.

I yield.
