No huge statement here. My life matters just as much as white lives, even though since birth I have been shown through systemic racism in my beloved country that it doesn’t. Black Lives Matter is an entreaty for everyone in this country to consider the impacts of racism on all of us as a community. Nobody loses if we heal racist ideology. We are all stronger if we look at these issues together.
This is directly related to the topic of healing. Ignoring the thousands of people hurting and protesting in the world on this topic is a form of spiritual bypass, and a form of gaslighting. We do, as a community, need to look at the wound beneath this rallying cry.
