My friend @greatersafety approached me a few weeks ago about working with her and @sassycrass on a shirt design for #BlackLivesMatter, proceeds largely going to @sassycrass (and a portion to me, as well, for the design).
It’s such a simple sentence. Not revolutionary at all. And yet it is, because white supremacy has a chokehold on every part of our society here in the United States (and certainly beyond).
Black lives matter. Black lives matter. Black lives matter. Black lives matter.
@sassycrass is right. It’s not a radical statement. It shouldn’t be a radical statement.
And I want to do everything in my admittedly small power to make sure that it’s not radical. That black lives are afforded the same respect, dignity, acceptance, celebration, and love as everyone else. And this is my tiny offering towards that end.
This particular campaign for the shirt ends Tuesday, September 29. It’s only $15. It will not only support @sassycrass and me for her wisdom and my design, but it will help you build awareness in your community, help you show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
After all. #BlackLivesMatter is not a radical statement.
