BLM: Articles of the Day - Part 2




Victor DeWayne Roy, Jr., married father of three children, wants the world to know his life matters, especially to some important people he calls family. He created the shirts and says, "I want each and every person who wears the shirt to know someone is reading that shirt, and the person reading it has no choice but to see those human beings beside you. At that point, they know you not only matter to this world as a living, breathing person, but first and foremost you matter to the people who love you."

Kudos to this dad for the concept and thought that went into the shirts, but the fact still remains that we shouldn't have to go to such lengths to receive equal treatment under the law. Click on the image or text link underneath to read the article.





I must confess, I'm not sure how to feel about this one. The project is a response to the morbid reality of police violence. Ja'han Jones, creator of the project says, "We are placing the reality of police violence before the eyes of those who know us best and forcing them to grapple with the prospect of police taking us from this Earth. And, this is not fatalistic — this is realistic."

I'm sorry, but I don't agree. I have nothing against writing your own obituary, detailing how you want your homegoing service, etc. before you pass away. In fact, I highly recommend it. But, doing it because we are being made to feel like our lives can be taken by the cops at any given moment sounds fatalistic to me.

And, again... the racial tension in America that causes this kind of thinking, is an absolute disgrace. Click on the image or text link underneath to read the article and decide for yourself.
