Not All Lives Matter
Not sure how anyone could see any of the recent police brutality in America and be able to say that “All lives matter”. Clearly— not all lives matter. Ahmaud Arbery’s life doesn’t seem to matter as much as the cops that shot him. Breonna Taylor was an EMT, her life mattered more than mine does, and yet she is dead—shot eight times. I don’t know what to say, besides to talk about what is happening, to acknowledge reality. Black lives matter—is a reminder, not a movement. Black lives matter, I will keep reminding everyone I know until I see it reflected in our society. Black lives matter. Black lives matter. Black lives matter.
I am enraged by the “all lives matter” camp and the inherent privilege that comes with it. Hopefully recent events will shake these people out of their fog, and if they don’t, hopefully my screaming helps.
