Perhaps the word should be changed to opportunity.
I just sat at a table last night with this family who is privileged. They were talking about their trips to China, India, this camp, that camp for their kids, what schools they are going to go to.
I was examining the word privilege in my head, realizing it sounds more jealous than anything. I can be happy for this family and these kids that have these opportunities to go do these things.

I have to admit. I woke up this morning and this was one of the first things I saw on FB and I gristled a little. I had already filled my page with posts supporting my friends, and while I know it isn't enough to just end with a post, it is a start. I had posted #BlackLivesMatter and a friend posted #AllLivesMatter and I explained to her that all lives can't matter unless black lives matter. Saying "black lives matter" doesn't mean all lives don't matter. I also mentioned about fighting against the injustices and racism that exist in the systems in the U.S.

So here is an article titled:

Dear White People, This is What We Want You to Do

I did not know about Breonna Taylor. I don't think that got very much media coverage.

Also this:
About a black man who talks about going on a walk through his neighborhood-he won't do it w/out his daughter because he knows he could be seen as a threat otherwise.

Her murder at the hands of cops got lost in the daily tsunami of bullshit.

Yeah, apparently.

I am currently having a conversation on FB with some friends who don't understand black lives matter vs all lives matter. They mean well. They even had it encased in rainbow colors, so I give them that.

Italia Kellys sister made this emotional plea to protesters that got out of hand.

He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

Yeah I had a text conversation with one of my friends last night who saw my temporary black FB profile pic and couldn't understand black lives matter vs all lives matter. He is pro Trump and wants to escalate the situation with the looters and protesters instead of de-escalate it.

Are you also writing a contract number on your body and bringing milk of magnesia?

What kind of fucked up article is that? I don't need to do anything other than go about my life treating people with the same respect that I'd like. That's it, I don't have to do anything more. And that's what most normal people do.

And if black people want to say black lives matter, who fucking cares? Let them say it and stop responding with all lives matter already. I happen to think dogs lives matter, but I'm not twittering about it.

hah  Twittering.

I think more of the animals than I do most people. I don't know if I'd risk my life for a human but I definitely would for an animal. I don't have a death wish or anything like that, but I would do whatever I could. If I didn't, it would haunt me.

Some people don't deserve animals.  Dramaqueen

This is a small town protest, walk around the city and then vigil w/ candles. Not a big city protest riot!!!!
