You can be poor, you can be struggling. And still your skin color is giving you more privilege than you even realize and nobody is saying that makes you better than anyone. It just lets you live your life without having to worry about surviving simply because of your skin color!!! You are privileged!! If all lives matter why are black people killed for just being black?

Does white privilege affect Hispanic people? Native Americans? Asian people? Yes for fking sure it does. But right now right in this moment… we have to address hundreds of years of oppression of black people. The slogan of #BlackLivesMatter does not mean other lives don't. It's calling attention to the fact that society clearly thinks black lives don't fking matter!!! And they f**king do!!!

It means black. lives. f**king. matter. #justiceforgeorgefloyd.
