Before I say anything, I will state that yes, black lives do matter. However, they don’t matter more than any other lives. And before you call me a white supremacist, please note that I myself am black.
So, the idea of BLM sounds nice. Because yes, black lives matter. I used to support this vile movement until I learned its true motives.
I once read an article written by an asian ex-BLM supporter. He stated that the BLM protesters had attacked him, thinking he was white. When they realized he was asian, one of the men there went to help him.
I cannot stand by BLM. They riot and say racist things like “kill all whites.” “Pigs in a blanket, FRY ‘EM LIKE BACON!” “What do we want? DEAD COPS!” “When do we want them? NOW!”
BLM was founded by a false witness report. A witness of Michael Brown getting shot stated that he had said “hands up don’t shoot.” He actually had a gun. This was a false report.
In conclusion, although the message seems great, actions speak much louder than words.
Illustrations on “hands-up don’t shoot” by artist Mary Engelbreit stirred a lot of reactions from her fans. Her reaction: “There are no words to express how little I care if I lose every bigoted, racist, homophobic and/or sexist follower I have.”
When blacks bring up things about the racism oppression they’ve suffered throughout American history, they are always told, “get over it.” The reason blacks bring up the history is because it affects their lives today. Lately the racist supporters of the Confederate flag have been protesting after Nikki Haley had it taken down in South Carolina. This shows how racists are inhumane for protesting the removal of a hatred symbol while telling blacks to get over the killing and oppression then and now. Since when does an object become more important than a life? Share if you agree.
