My thoughts on Black Lives Matter (BLM)

Author: Billie Jean Skinner

A grandma and great grandma, a believer of many years

When we say Black Lives Matter (BLM), we are speaking of the disregard for (black people) physical existence as a culture of people.

We are more likely to be shot and killed by the police, falsely in prison, and many other things.

We face discrimination everywhere we go, by all other ethnicities, outside of our own. For example, finding suitable housing and medical care on any level, we are sure to be exposed to others' bigotry.

Due to everyday and continual barrages of hatred by others, many have turned that hatred inward and hate the image of themselves as people of color, which is the reason I feel that self-hatred exists.

A lot of people hear the term Black Lives Matter; they think that we are leaving out all life matters, which is true, but society treats blacks a lot differently.

It is so discouraging that it is hard to get people to understand when we, as black people, say Black Lives Matter, we are talking about our existence as human beings on this earth. And with great sorrow, this is just the tip of the iceberg!

The most important thing is the Grace of God and how he has been by our side through it all. After all, we are all made in God's image.
