I have to thank Mystique Summers for sharing this.
This is all funny, sad, interesting, and true.
Our lives matter when we're fetishized. But not when we're dying?
Another thing I think people are misunderstanding, is that all that's
going on, if you aren't a bad white cop, if you aren't a racist, bigoted
white person, if you aren't in general a terrible person, then all
these discussions about Black Lives Matter versus All Lives Matter,
about white privilege, etc. has nothing to do with you. If you are a
good white cop, if you are a good white person, if you are a good person
in general, you don't have to be an ally for us to love you. You are
just fine. It's not about you.
