Black Lives Matter

Racial Justice is not a zero-sum game. When justice rises for any citizen - we all benefit. When justice fails any citizen - we all lose.

Mr. President, we are not anarchists. We are peaceful patriots who love and support our brothers and sisters in the Black Community. We recognize where systemic racism exists. And we recognize we all need to stand together for what is right. We need policy changes not ‘domination’. These changes should include police policy reform, mass incarceration addressed, education policy, and more.

I condemn the after-hour violence the media highlights. But this is not the movement, and this violence will NOT be quelled by more violence – especially state-sanctioned violence.

We are reaching a dangerous point. We need leadership.

Governors, Mayors – this is your time to stand up. Lead.

Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, and Commissioners -- this is your time. Please show protect & serve – ALL citizens. Show compassion and love, not power, and might.

Business Leaders – leverage your access and privilege.

Military Leaders – remember you exist to fight FOR us, you ARE us.

Let’s all act now to strive to contain state violence and advance dialogue for meaningful change.

I commit to working for change. I recognize that ‘all lives matter’ can't be true until BLACK LIVES MATTER. And so I march with the Black Community. I march for the Black Community. I march for our nation – one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice FOR ALL! #BlackLivesMatter #StrongerTogether

My question is how long has African Americans have been fighting for their rights.with all the voices that been heard still a change haven't come. But the hearts of evilness has waxed colder and colder people get up their and say they few inspiring words thinking that is the solution to our problem in which its not it may calm the surface for a while but it never gotten to the root of the problem and all these year or protesting all of this still we haven't gotten any where and the real solution too the problem people truly don't want it because if they did they would be willing to do anything even including this to gain their peace and safety . and what i am about to tell you you aren't going to want to do it because it may cost you everything even your lifestyle and your way of living. and do you really want to know do you? well if you do hear we .AND THAT WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY WILL SOLVE ALL THE PROBLEMS AND THAT IS JESUS CHRIST READ THAT BIBLE AND SEE WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU LEARN YOUR HISTORY SINCE WE DIDN'T HAVE HISTORY BOOKS THAT TOLD THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR TRUE HISTORY THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW IS IN THAT BOOK PICK UP SOMETIMES AND READ ALLOW GOD TO OPEN UP YOUR UNDERSTANING TO WHAT HE'S TELLING YOU. WE AS A PEOPLE AND WHEN I SAY WE I AM TALKING ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICAN AND EVERY NATIONALITY OF BLACK DECENT THAT MAKES UP THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL ITS TIME FOR US ALL TO RETURN BACK TO GOD HE CALLING FOR THE RETURN OF HIS PEOPLE BUT YOU ALL AREN'T TAKEN HEED TOO HIS VOICE.AND IT GOING TO TAKE REPENTING AND READING THAT KING JAMES VERSON BIBLE PRAYING SEEKING YAHWEH WHICH THAT IS HIS NAME IN HEBREW BUT IN TILL THEN IF YOU DON'T DO THESE THINGS DON'T LOOK FOR ANYTHING TO CHANGE IT GOING TO GET WORSER AND WORSER . TAKE HEED WHILE WE AT A PEACE STAND STILL YOU THINK THAT FAKE CORONAVIRUS SCARED THE DEVIL OUT OF A LOT OF PEOPLE BUT WAIT IF YOU DON'T GET IT RIGHT GOD IS BRING A PART TWO TO THIS YOU JUST WAIT AND SEE. BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAID GOD SHALL NOT BE MOCKED. THESE ARE WORDS OF WISDOM

That was very heartfelt. You are correct that when it come social injustice and systemic racism, when one fails we all lose. We just band together and have the hard conversations about race and address our own prejudices. Truth is the way to solving this issue. #No more lies!

I hate that no one sees past the name of this movement Black Lives Matter. The second that term hit the media it completely undermined its cause. It created a dichotomy between itself and anything else anything else that mattered. No one talks about social justice or injustices to minorities or urban areas because no one can get past arguing about the name and staying “why don’t my life matter?” “Dog and Cats Matter” ..An entire county was offended just because some said “black lives matter” ..I’m pretty sure no one meant other lives were didn’t matter but that’s how it was taken. It’s still going strong to keep every deflected from that cause. No one can see it without pointing out how another life matters. It’s so sad. Just let them let their lives matter, scroll on and be happy your live matters too. It wasn’t meant to say other lives didn’t matter. Lord let us move on from this. Please. I swear the sign said “Black Lives Matter” but i have thought of looking again because the majority of Americans read it as “Only Black Lives Matter” or maybe I missed the back of the original sign which read “...and yours doesn’t.” ...If you care about this the social justice or injustices to anyone anywhere you should never post anything with “...Lives Matter” after it ever. Even when used by those who feel they are using it to be positive or show you don’t believe in racism it falls so short of even that point. I can’t think of another statement more used to misrepresented and undermine its cause than this.
