For the Love of Liberty: Do #BlackLivesMatter?

Video:


Snippet of Transcript:
You say, “YES, black lives matter, they absolutely matter, because all lives matter.”

Look I get it, you want to make your point about individual rights, about the idea that no other race should be held over another. That’s fine. But that means including those who’ve felt excluded, not continuing to exclude them. That’s the entire concept of all lives matter. Right? Black lives matter. White lives matter. Everybody’s lives matter.

This is a time of exceptional police brutality, and we have the opportunity to document it, share it and be exposed to the experiences of others. As more and more people distrust the state, it is time to bring them into our movement. We should be including them, inviting them. This means validating their experiences. This means saying “Yes, you’re being oppressed. And your oppressor? That’s the state.  That’s the enemy.”
