Real eyes recognize and realize that when they say All Lives Matter its just real lies.

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.

#BlackLivesMatter doesn’t mean other lives don’t, white people. You can, in fact be for people on both sides and still want to see changes in the system. There’s a problem if you don’t see a problem. If you don’t look at statistical facts regarding incarceration rates and shooting rates and death rates and at least question what’s going on, you have a problem. If you don’t see a problem with the fact that our police forces spend FIVE TIMES more time on firearms and self-defense training than conflict management, deescalation, and ethics & integrity training combined, you have a problem. It’s not just a Black and Brown issue, it’s an authoritative issue. Black people have shown godly levels of grace in the face of centuries of oppression. Nine people were murdered for no other reason than their skin, by someone who they welcomed with open arms. And the families immediately responded with grace, forgiveness & love. And that’s not an anomaly. That’s the unbelievable resolve and strength of the Black spirit. Time and time and time again, we see Black people respond with grace. Well they’re tired. We should be tired for them. At the very least we shouldn’t be surprised that they’re tired. It’s enough. And if you don’t care about any of this, we all have a huge, HUGE problem.
