Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter “Social Experiment”
So basically I came across this stupid “social experiment” by a YouTuber with over 1 million subscribers called Joey Salads. Previously he’s uploaded a video with another social experiment.
In that video, a white friend of his, dressed in something that looks like a thawb (a typical Arab garment), would drop a case while running near people yelling “Allahu Akbar!”, which scared people, the second part of the experiment showed Joey himself in jeans and a t-shirt dropping the same case near people saying “Praise Jesus!” and the most he got were weird looks. He doesn’t explain the reason behind the experiment, nor does he call for no more stereotypes or anything.
The other day he decided to step out of his lane again and uploaded a video called “Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter Supporters (Social Experiment)”.
And it goes like this:
First thing he goes to a white neighborhood asking people if they agree that Black Lives Matter. One dude goes on about how black lives do matter, but it should be all lives matter, because segregating doesn’t help us come together bla bla bla. Another guy actually does say “Yes, Black lives ALWAYS matter.” But the rest are your usual racists who don’t give a damn about us.
Here’s where Joey completely missed the point of the movement and lost his right to talk about the issue.
First of all, as an Italian you don’t get to decide whether or not something’s racist. Hundreds of innocent Italians don’t get killed by the police in America, you don’t get discriminated at job interviews, at school etc. So shut it.
Then he goes to a Black neighborhood yelling “All lives matter!”
I can’t tell for sure whether those Black dudes are actors or not (something in their voice and how awkwardly they acted tells me they are, but it doesn’t really matter).
