I should somehow apologies for one of my previous notes, “It’s Human Rights“. I still believe in what I said but my point was not completely correct.
When we say black lives matter, it doesn’t mean that other lives doesn’t matter. It simply means there’s more discrimination and injustice towards black human beings.
Imagine a group of people sitting on a table to eat. Everybody gets a plate of food except Tom. Tom says “I’m hungry too. I deserve food too” and someone responds “We all are hungry. We all deserve food.” It’s correct but it doesn’t change the fact that Tom doesn’t have food.
We’re all sitting on a table with our plates full of food and we shout that we all deserve food but shouting it doesn’t change the fact that Tom is still hungry.
Do all lives matter? Yes but saying it doesn’t change the fact that black lives haven’t mattered for years.
