“For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house.” -Audre Lorde
Human lives matter (Do only certain lives matter?)
When people around town or on social media express their thoughtful views I wonder,
do they think by using phrases such as:
black lives matter,
white lives matter,
native lives matter,
yellow lives matter,
gay lives matter,
purple lives matter,
red lives matter,
green lives matter, etc. etc.
(in no specific order, but always separate),
that they are not employing the same ideological tools
used to perpetuate segregation, generalization, hatred, and “-isms”?
Are we in 2015 separating groups with phrases?
Where is the community?
Don’t human lives matter?
What’s wrong with saying that?
