If there's one thing we know about racists, it's that they are not very smart people. Sometimes, their ignorance starts seeping so deep into their brain cells that they can't help but lose other basic capabilities, like spelling.
Keep scrolling to see this woman vandalize a fence with "Wighte Lives Matter." Who knows? You might learn something new along the way.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen...Today is your lucky day because I have decided to answer some of your burning questions about what is currently going on in the world.
I suspect some of you are wondering why... Good question, Karen.Because there are some people out there that are very confused about why people are still talking about race and racism in the great country we call home.
But I'm here to break it down for you, one burning question at a time.Try to hold any new follow-up questions you may have until the end of our little chat, and racists, please try and withhold your anger until you see the all-important final post at the end.
"What is the Black Lives Matter movement?"
via: Getty ImagesSimply put, the movement was created in 2013 after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin, a seventeen-year-old schoolboy who was walking home with a bag of Skittles after visiting his father's fiancee.
An altercation ensued even though Zimmerman was told not to get involved by a superior.
via: Getty ImagesAnd when the police arrived on the scene, Martin was dead with bullet wounds and Zimmerman claimed he acted in self-defense. After a lengthy trial that gripped the nation, the off-duty "captain of the neighborhood patrol" was released without any charges.
That's when the Black Lives Matter hashtag started trending.
via: Getty ImagesThis was because Trayvon Martin's life was brutally ended over a stereotype that black boys in hoodies are deemed as a "threat." Zimmerman's only claim to stopping the young man was because he "looked suspicious."
But why? What made him suspicious?
via: Getty ImagesIf it was the hoodie, why don't other people in hoodies get stopped as often as black boys and men? At the time, you would think it was just one isolated incident, but over the next seven years, up until this day, the same situation continued to take place but just with a different black person each time.
Say their names.
According to The Washington Post, black people are being killed twice as much as white people.
via: Getty ImagesAnd this is even despite the fact that they only make up thirteen percent of the population. Are you understanding that fact alone is a problem? Or is it still just a coincidence to you that all these young black folk are now dead?
Just because you're not racist, doesn't mean others aren't.
via: Getty ImagesAnd with the oppression of black people being systemtic, which means it's rooted within the foundations of our society, racism has become a second pandemic. Right, next question.
"Why is 'All Lives Matter' a racist statement? I'm not a racist."I know for some of you, you don't mean harm when you say "All Lives Matter" right? Because the statement standing alone and out of context is true. All lives do in fact, matter. But here's where that education aspect comes into play because we need to look at the political history behind the phrase.
For those of you that aren't aware, this phrase was coined by racists to oppose BLM, that's why it's offensive.
via: Getty ImagesA whole group of racists saw Black Lives Matter and decided to shout this phrase at those fighting for equality in order to stand against them. So while we all understand that all lives matter, using the phrase to take a stand against BLM is counter-productive as is actually racist.
No, Karen, you're not racist because you used the phrase out of context.But now, in very simplified terms, you've learned where it comes from and the next time you shout "All Lives Matter", think about where it comes from and shout "I love everyone" instead. That way, we all win.
Here are a few things to note down:
via: Getty ImagesThis movement has not been created to deem your life any less worthy compared to black folks'. It's simply raising awareness about the racism we all thought had been eradicated from our society because slavery was abolished in 1865... Spoiler alert: It continued to happen for many years after that date too.
No one is asking you to apologize on behalf of your white ancestors.
via: Getty ImagesWe're just asking you to empathize. If you can learn to understand why black people are still sad and angry about the way certain things operate, we can help fix those things and move forward together. And that might also help to put an end to your irrational fears that black people want to take over and make white people inferior.
News flash: They don't.
via: Getty ImagesThey just want equality. And in becoming an ally, you don't lose your white privilege, you don't lose your money, you don't lose your land. You just become a better and more caring person. And the world needs more of them right now.
This is for your own good because look at the state of actual racists.
