THE HATE U GIVE US

EDITORS LETTERS
Dear reader, we appreciate you have found this magazine interesting. The content you will find here is mostly about protesting and being heard in the context of racism and racial discrimination; taking into consideration the book "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas.

Real-life metaphors, social injustice, scooting violent memories, flinching at the police's look towards Starr, "I just wanna be treated fair, Cause that's all I ever knew";  are some of the content examples you´ll be able to find; knowing more about the book's protagonist Starr Carter daily life-not too far away from reality.

We will also talk about the fight for justice that took place around the book.We really hope you to enjoy a small look-through about black lives today, caring not only to change, but to do useful actions that really bring differences apart.

TOMAS CAICEDO MEDINA AND MARIA ANTONIA LEON

METAPHORS SECTION

Many times when we talk about the term "Justice" we think of something that is impossible and that is something that only rich people can achieve, as many believe, but justice is something that is not unattainable, since it can be achieved with dedication, effort, and hope. In this case we will compare chapters 12 to 15 of the book "The hate u you give us" in which it is evident that justice is not something impossible and more when there is dedication, with a news story in which it is evidenced as a mother thanks to the dedication and hope seeks justice for the death of his son in Colombia.The news is titled "Mothers of murdered sons fight for justice in Colombia" (by BBC) and shows how justice is possible in a country where impunity is normal.

Justice is something that can be thought of as impossible if hope is lost, as evidenced in the case of the Colombian mother who, despite the time, always sought justice for the case of her son, this is related to the way in which Starr seeks justice for the case of his friend, who was killed for any apparent reason, the only reason apparent reason for his murder was his skin color. Despite the environment in which she (Starr) lives, she always seeks for the justice of his friend in different ways, such as publishing her friend's memoirs in a blog and representing Khalili's voice in order to make  justice.

In both cases, the objective was to achieve justice, and both have in common several things, first that they didn't see  violence as a way to achieve justice. Second, they never give up , and third, they reminded the dialogue and constant efforts to achieve what they wanted , because in the case of the mother, she did justice after almost 14 years (thanks to the constant dedication), and in the case of Starr, she started try to achieve justice since a really young age. Finally we can conclude that justice doesn't depend on the age, religion or skin color, it depend on the effort you make in order to achieve it.

They don't care about us. Michael Jackson

"Tell me, what has become of my life?
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of being the victim of hate
You're ripping me of my pride, oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy, set me free

Skin head, dead head, everybody's gone bad
Trepidation, speculation, everybody, allegation
In the suit, on the news, everybody, dog food
Black male, blackmail, throw the brother in jail
All I wanna say is that they don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don't really care about us"

Where is the love? Black Eyed Peas

"I think the whole world's addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we tryin' to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and the Crips, and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate, then you're bound to get irate
Madness is what you demonstrate"

Hey Joe, I said where you goin' with that gun in your hand?
Alright.

You know I caught her messin' 'round with another man.
I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady
You know I caught her messin' 'round with another man.

 All Falls Down - Kanye West

"Then I spent 400 bucks on this
Just to be like nigga you ain't up on this!
And I can't even go to the grocery store
Without some ones thats clean and a shirt with a team
It seems we living the american dream
But the people highest up got the lowest self esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to riches and diamond rings
We shine because they hate us, floss cause they degrade us
We trying to buy back our 40 acres
And for that paper, look how low we a'stoop
Even if you in a Benz, you still a nigga in a coop/coupe
Oh when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you oh, it all falls down
I say fuck the police, that's how I treat em
We buy our way out of jail, but we can't buy freedom"

"F**k Tha Police" - N. W. A

"F***k tha police
Comin straight from the underground
Young nigga got it bad cuz I'm brown
And not the other color so police think
They have the authority to kill a minority
F***k that s***, cuz I ain't tha one
For a punk muthaf***ka with a badge and a gun
To be beatin on, and throwin in jail
We could go toe to toe in the middle of a cell
F***kin with me cuz I'm a teenager
With a little bit of gold and a pager
Searchin my car, looking for the product
Thinking every nigga is selling narcotics"

We chose these songs because we believe that they represent different moments in history. In these songs many things can be seen, such as the injustices that are committed for being a skin color, the violation of human rights, and the constant fight for them. It should be noted that the songs we chose have the same objective, to show that justice must prevail above all
