‘Black Lives Matter’ Is More Than Just A Social Media Trend

Black Lives Matter is more than just a trend on social media platforms. This isn’t just something you post to fit in with everyone else or to appear involved in certain issues. It’s a declaration and a call for action regarding the Black Community. No matter your race or ethnicity, even if you don’t understand the kind of inequality that Black people go through every day, Black Lives Matter is something you need to take a stand on.

No matter your skin color or race, use your voice to speak up and put racism to an end. Black Lives Matter is a resistance to end the hate, injustice, and racism that exists in a world that claims that there is equality among all humans. This is more than just a social media trend—it’s your chance to do what’s right for the Black Community that deserves the same rights as everyone else. All they ever wanted was to be treated like an equal and not to be judged harshly by the color of their skin. When some people see a Black individual, they automatically assume the worst of them, and this kind of mindset needs to stop.

The Black Community is one of the kindest and most respectful groups of people in the world, but this isn’t just the reason why their lives matter. They matter because they deserve to have equality, like everyone else. They matter because they’re exhausted of feeling inferior to the people who don’t understand the lack of privilege they have every day. They matter because they want to wake up and not get critical and hateful stares by people of higher power and authority. They matter because they’re humans living in such a flawed and unfair justice system when all they ever wanted was to have the same rights as everyone else.

If you’re white, use this opportunity to take a stand for Black Lives Matter. This isn’t just to fit in with everyone else, it’s to encourage everyone to do what they can to put an end to racism. If you truly want equality in this world, you need to be the change the world deserves. Use your voice to encourage people all over the world to sign petitions, donate, and put an end to this injustice.
