But let me make it very clear: Being pro-Black or supporting Black Lives Matter does not mean being anti-white, anti-authority or anti-police.Being for anything doesn’t automatically make you against anything else. Being “for” my family doesn’t mean I’m against yours. It means I love my family.If anything, we should be supporting and promoting the #BlackLivesMatter
movement, white people. Think about it. If I hate myself, if I don’t love my own family, what makes you think I’m going to love yours. The more I love my family, the more loving of a person I am, period. The more I love me, the more love I have to give to you. If you see no problem with Irish Americans celebrating St Patricks Day, but you are uncomfortable with Black people celebrating their blackness, you have a problem. If you see no problem with Italians having restaurants in Little Italy and Chinese people having shops in Chinatown, but you see a problem with Black people celebrating Black community, you have a problem. If you march with the LGBT community for gay pride, but Black pride threatens you, you have a problem. If you don’t even blink when employees protest and picket for higher wages but you see a problem with Black people protesting for respect of life, you have a problem. If you think the Confederate flag is a perfectly acceptable symbol of Southern “pride” but dashikis and afros and kente cloth make you squirm, you have a problem. If any of this makes you uncomfortable, the problem is not them, it’s you.
