If you think that black people saying their lives matter means your white life matters less, it is a reflection of the idea that white lives are better than black lives. Hitler really did believe that Aryan lives mattered more than any other. So he systematically murdered millions of other lives. Who have we murdered? It is you, the blatant, and the complicit who have murdered us. Who is behaving like the monster?
I can’t stress enough that everyone in the world should read James Baldwin’s essay called, “On Being White and Other Lies.” Baldwin eloquently states the position of whiteness and blackness, a position that I agree with.
