Black Lives Matter more than White Fear

Black Lives Matter more than White Fear July 12, 2016

Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter.
In Louisiana
In Minnesota
In Texas
Black Lives Matter.

When we commit to undoing the systemic racism that sets black people up for harassed and penalized existence, that sets police up for fearful lives, that sets us all up to be dehumanized – only then can the news change. Then there can be right relationship in neighborhoods.

Denying the impact of white supremacy on this country’s judicial system creates more injustice, more inflamed rhetoric, more grief, more rage.

It is said that confession is good for the soul.

Let us confess, America.

The ideology of white supremacy has created a merciless reality of rageful distrust and power wielded fearfully.

Let us confess, America.

And let us testify:

Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter.
