Well said Linda and thanks for sharing Jane Elliott’s vid – it’s really that simple, so why won’t people stand up and say it’s time things changed?
Of Course “All Lives Matter” and that is the point of “Black Lives Matter”. I get so tired of people viewing the “Black Lives Matter” movement with narrowed or accusatory eyes. To say that “Black Lives Matter is not to negate that White, Brown, or Yellow lives don’t matter.
Actor Jessie Williams said it best, “What we’ve been doing is looking at the data and we know that police somehow manage to deescalate, disarm and not kill white people everyday.”
That’s what “Black Lives Matter” is about. Its purpose is to focus attention on the perpetual inequalities that exist in the United States (and presumably other countries since it has exploded all over the world).
Black Lives are disproportionately taken for inanely stupid things like traffic stops. You may say that they should have cooperated with the police, but I say even when they do, some end up dead.
