#BlackLivesMatter bothers people who fundamentally believe that Black Lives Don’t Matter. Who want peace at the expense of the rights of Black People.
For whom Justice is White Privilege.
It only works as an American Issue if we are seen as Americans. It’s a question of humanity if we are seen as human.
The American Psyche is distorted by the systemic denial of humanity and citizenship to Black Americans.
The debate on Slavery during Declaration of Independence,
the Dred Scott case.
The discussions surrounding the 13 amendment and
Plessy v Ferguson.
These are anomalies or glitches is the American psyche.
This is it.
