“It’s unfortunate that we even have to say Black Lives Matter.” The one thing that many blacks have been saying since the #BLM movement began.
“I mean if you go through history, nobody ever gave a fuck. I mean, you can kill black people in the street. Nobody goes to jail, nobody goes to prison, but when I say, ‘Black Lives Matter’ and you say, ‘All Lives Matter,’ that’s like if I was to say, ‘Gay Lives Matter’ and you say, ‘All Lives Matter’ or if I said, ‘Women’s Lives Matter’ and you say, ‘All Lives Matter,’ you’re diluting what I’m saying. You’re diluting the issue.”
It’s disheartening to know that this has to be said for people to understand, but it takes me to common sense being the most un-common thing in the world.
