The excuse to condemn BLM as a dangerous political organization is tired. There is no such evidence, even anecdotally, to support the smear. No BlackLives leader has ever pushed for divisiveness or violence. It has always been about equality and inclusiveness. The only people who have problems with White people participating in BLM is other White people.
It is practically a crime to utter the words “Black Lives Matter” in public. The fact that there is such widespread backlash against an obvious statement, shows that it is necessary that more people need to say it.
Whats sad is that the effort to show that the lives of Black Americans matter as much as everyone else’s lives, has to be viewed as an awareness campaign. America should ALREADY know that BlackLivesMatter, since our Constitution guarantees that the lives of ALL American Lives matter. Instead of acknowledging an obvious declaration, the rest of America chooses to refute it.
If you can wear a national flag pin, a pink ribbon, or a blue stripe to school, you should be able to wear a BLM pin, too.
