Waarom wij Black Lives Matter zeggen

When the Boston marathon was bombed, and everybody’s profile picture changed to Boston Strong, nobody said “all cities are strong”.

When the Las Vegas shooting happened, people changed their profile to Stand with Vegas. Nobody said “stand with everywhere”.

Have you ever seen someone counter a breast cancer post with: “Wait what about colon cancer?”

When there is a crisis, we have always rallied around that particular group, city or cause, to bring awareness and support where it is needed.

Nobody is saying “all lives don’t matter”, but right now our black families, friends, colleagues and strangers need our support!
