WHITE FRAGILITY TOOL BOX: ALL LIVES MATTER


AN EMPATHY-LESS ATTEMPT AT E-RACE-SURE

REBLOG FROM DAILY DOT

#AllLivesMatter erases the original context of #BlackLivesMatter and sometimes it does so quite deliberately

"Black lives became the focus because there’s an ongoing trend of unarmed black people getting shot and killed by police officers and vigilantes. It’s persisted for generations in America but, in the last few years, the death of Trayvon Martin, followed by Jordan Davis and Renisha McBride, prompted a renewed focus. And in 2014 alone, numerous other victims' names came to the forefront, often with the help of social media, including Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

In an October 2014 piece for the Feminist Wire, #BlackLivesMatter co-creator Alicia Garza detailed how the movement came to be while providing a litany of reasons for the necessary attention on black people. As Garza wrote, "Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression."
