- jvvblog@mikadas1 yes Anamika, obviously we think that. But the problem is that this country as an institution (& many people living in it) don't agree. There's nothing controversial about saying Black Lives Matter.
- mikadas1@jvvblog First and foremost I just want to say that you are a beautiful amazing person. Thank you for clarifying what you meant when you said institution. I now know you did not mean nut house... unfortunately when you say black lives matter, you single out one race. Every immigrant at one point has faced some type of discrimination so every life is important.
- jvvblog@mikadas1 Thanks Anamika! You’re a beautiful and amazing person too! But I want to clarify because I think it’s important. The movement is called Black Lives Matter because black people have historically been oppressed and marginalized in this country. To say Black Lives Matter doesn’t invalidate the worth of others. People get bent out of shape by the name, but would a human rights movement called "Women Matter" or "Children Matter” bother people as much? When police are shooting unarmed black men, women, and children at alarming rates…and when Flint, MI, a city populated predominantly by black people, has been without clean drinking water for years, saying Black Lives Matter is important.
