I killed a bug this morning and felt like a hypocrite...smh Because at that point, I realized that ALL lives didn't matter the same to me...
So I started thinkin'... Plants and animals are living organisms that we kill for our own benefit... Did their lives REALLY matter up until the point of our need to nourish our bodies???
What about those who go hunting?? They kill animals for sport... It's nothing but a game to them!
Sadly, the overall psyche of America hasn't changed much since slavery, when black people were considered "property" and 3/5 of a person. Slave owners saw the black man as an animal to be treated as such. Til this day, that overall perception hasn't changed much....smh
I see the Black Lives Matter movement as a movement for equality, similar to the Civil Rights Movement. And just like the Civil Rights Movement, there were people who offered their dissenting opinions (All Lives Matter) in order to maintain the status quo...
But, can YOU honestly say that ALL lives matter the same to you??
