Why is it Black Lives Matter vs. All Lives Matter ?
The true crux of the debate of the Century.
As we mourn the death of our prince George Floyd, our princess Breonna Taylor and our general Ahmaud Arbery, we are reminded once again that these are indeed dark times.
Children are in cages, people are starving, animals are being treated cruelly, people are dying, our frontline workers are taxed in the fight against the ravages of this disease. And unarmed black men, women, enby’s and fluids are being murdered belligerently, joyfully and arrogantly in the the street by a vicious herd of piggish dogs who wish nothing more than to earn glory for our blood.
We can’t breathe.
Enough is Enough.
Too many names are on that list. Too many lives are being lost in the wake of senseless bloodshed in the name of oppression.
It is time.
Time for the Black Sheep in this country to unite. For all the outcasts, for all the people on the outskirts of society. No longer shall we be sacrificed for the maintenance of this farcical illusion known as racism. Black Sheep Matter. Black Lives Matter. Black Lives are all of us.
And to those of you who still say All Lives Matter. You are being given a choice today as to which God you shall serve. You can no longer feign ignorance as the scourge of Omelas has been revealed to you. Any continued belief in this ideology, means you are complicit and are actively saying the following to your fellow Americans:
“All lives can die equally as payment and blessed sacrifice so that we may remain comfortable in our delusional and broken society.”
And that belief marks you the enemy of all life.
