I’m having a difficult time understanding why so many people are against The Black Lives Matter movement. How can one deny a movement that’s so necessary and prevalent? Why would you want to deny or speak negatively of the movement? The torture and abuse enforced on Black and Brown citizens due to Police Brutality (in some cases it’s fake cops) all across the United States of America is what sparked the movement. Police brutality seems to almost never come to surface when discussions are had about the Black Lives Matter movement. However, what seems to always come up in discussions about Black Lives matter is All Lives Matter.
Attack number one – Is the All Lives Matter movement. If all lives mattered there would have not been a need for the Black lives movement. Contrary to the belief of others, Black Lives Matter (BLM) wasn’t created to separate anyone. It was created to bring attention and awareness to what’s going on all around you which is the beating and killings of people (especially unarmed) of color by the police. It’s away to unite people in an understanding that it’s not okay to harass and murder Black people for sport , or through fear and that we are all connected.
