I'm not black but my life matters too

of course your life matters but let’s put it like this: black life matter is like a house on fire, so there’s a house on fire and everybody needs to help to put that fire out, so we don’t loose more lives. and just because you’re helping out does not mean that your house don’t matter, it’s just that it is not the house who needs help right now. you don’t stand infront of your non-burning house yelling help! help the burning house, and the people caged in it, unwillingly. we all need to help, whatever colour we are, because black people are the owners of the burning house, they are stuck in this fire, and they fight and fight, but they need help to put out the fire.
