Boomtown Fair

Today we stand with organisations across the arts who are joining in solidarity with those who face racism, prejudice and injustice through #BlackoutTuesday & #TheShowMustBePaused.⁣

But this is not limited to one day or a social media campaign... We pledge to better ourselves as allies in this fight, a fight that is all of ours to win. We pledge to do everything in our power and with our platform to dig out racism and prejudice from the roots, and raise awareness to the ongoing injustices that pollute this world.⁣

Those of us who strive for a better world must passionately join together and claim it for all of us. Not just through joint campaigns and hashtags, but through actions, awareness and education. We must all be better. The world deserves it but most importantly, humanity needs it. ⁣

Here's a whole list of incredible articles to read to fully understand the situation, and what can be done to fully support and take action: bit.ly/BLMresource⁣

ALL LIVES MATTER

Saying "all lives matter" as a response is thoughtless. It detracts from the fact that they clearly don't....otherwise black lives would not being disproportionately ended. If a kid cuts their knee you don't put a plaster on all kids' knees. You help out that one kid and keep the same level of care going for all the others at the same time. Saying black lives matter does not stop all other lives mattering. It identifies a problem that needs to be talked about. White people, we need to get over feeling all "but I'm not a racist" about it.... our feelings are not important in this problem. Please think before saying "all lives matter" cuz it's a dumb response to a really horrendous issue.

You need to block out your profile picture it's not a marketing tool.

I notice the only people shouting 'All lives matter' are white 🤔

Saying black lives matter is racist ALL lives matter ALL. Black lives White lives what’s the difference

Joseph Smith did they ever do anything about the racism you received last year?

For those who say all lives matter. White lives already matter, we don't have to fight for the same equality that black people and POC do. All lives will matter when black (& POC) lives matter.

#EmilyJones #SayTheirNames

Just saying, ive been known to hate everyone equally, no favourites you could be Black, White or other i don,t care. But these protesters need to go home , so not to give a leg up to all the rioters opportunists thief's looters who will gladly bring a country to it knees destroy a small business without blinking a eye

Shocked at how many ppl on this page r so ignorant 🙁 especially when it's coming from a place of white privilege. White ppl do not need ppl to protest or post about how their lives matter... they have not been treated unequally. Please do some research before posting this all lives matter crap.

Without black people.. what does this world look like?! #Idea Use today to make a list of all the black inventors, tomorrow share these inventions and creators. Use today to find the origins of popular music and tomorrow share your findings. Use today to research black kings and queens, tomorrow share your history. Use today to paint, draw, doodle your ideas, pain, solutions. Tomorrow make money. Etc etc.

Created by black people, we are now stopping the show. The movement is created by 2 black women. The world takes, takes, takes and puts us in a box even though we probably created the box in the first place. Fuck the box, we are not going to stand by and continue business as usual. Media black out... we are taking black ownership of our art & soul. #TheShowMustStop Use this time for conversation, personal creation and researching how you can better support, promote and understand black people, culture, inventions, music origins, history, business, traditions, all of the tings.. use this time! This is not a day of silence.. this is a day of formulation. 🖤✊🏾💜✊🏽💙✊🏻🤎✊🏼❤

All human life should be matter not only 1 colour and if we look around so many innocent people got killed and no one say nothing about them so please stand up for all human not just for 1 colour because we all are human being and we all should get treated with respect and love

Every life matters!!!!

What about the cunts that are out looting small businesses?imo there lives mean nothing! If they die they die!

All minority lives matter

This was an unfortunate fail, fell on deaf ignorant ears 🤦 How disappointing #blacklivesmatter #theirprotest

People saying "All Lives Matter" as a rebuttal to "Black Lives Matter" really do not get the point. After all, how many of the people saying "All Lives Matter" had their forefathers and mothers chained on boats? Shackled on ships? Hung from trees? Burnt above fires? Whipped in the fields? Banned from voting? Bared from seats? How many? Eh? JUST HOW MANY? You see the whole point about Black Lives Matter is to say that if ALL lives matter, then stop treating Black people like this. You see if ALL lives really did matter, then why are Black people still continually subject to racism? How can ALL lives matter if Black people are still oppressed on a DAILY basis? How can ALL lives matter if the statistics show that the vast majority of Black people are excluded from the highest paid jobs? And how can ALL lives matter if Black people are many times more likely to die in police custody than White people? Do you understand? So, my White friends, I am calling on you to call out those who say "All Lives Matter". I am calling on you to tell those that say this why it is INAPPROPRIATE to do so, just like it is INAPPROPRIATE for a white person to use the N word. I am calling on you to inform those that rebut with "Oh, but white lives matter too", by educating them to the underlying reasons as to why such a comment is WRONG. I could go on and on but I will park this right here for now. Please do this. Can you? Surely this is not too much to understand or ask.

Black people kill way more white people in America than white people who kill black people

white privilege noun inherent advantages possessed by a white person on the basis of their race in a society characterized by racial inequality and injustice. "I'll be the first to acknowledge that I do benefit from white privilege" There are a lot of people of people on this thread who need to check themselves. Imagine being so insecure that you get triggered by a campaign for racial justice.
