    The Founders of Black Lives Matter: "We Gave Tongue To Something That We All Knew Was Happening"


    “I cannot think of a better time in our nation’s history for the brave names of Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi to be recognized. The courage heard in their voices mirrors some of history’s greatest giants, with sharp echoes of Rosa Parks. Black Lives Matter is working to heal our country’s age-long sickness. For when one is sick, so too are we all sick. Only when all is healed might we all one day be well.” —Uzo Aduba, actress (Read Uzo Aduba’s comments in full at the end of this piece.)

    When A Child Believes ‘Black Lives Don’t Matter’
    When there is fear, social progress ceases to exist


    My fiancé, a teacher, came home from work the day after the election. “A little boy was sitting on the side of the playground crying today,” he told me. “When I asked him what was wrong he said, ‘Black lives don’t matter.

    The Chilling Reason Why Black Lives Matter Memorializes Fidel Castro

    Two days after Cuban dictator Fidel Castro bit the dust, Black Lives Matter memorialized him, and the reasons for it are not pretty.

But Black Lives Matter celebrated him — because he provided a refuge for cop killers ...
