I know. 😞 I didn't learn about Elijah last year, but it's amazing how few people conveniently still haven't heard of him. All the folks I know who aren't for BLM say they never heard about him. It's such a tricky time. Vast majority just want to show support, but then are attacked for being part of a hate group. I wish it weren't all so political. TBH I don't even know what we can say about BLM on this forum. Is it considered political at this point? I'd elaborate but don't want to break rules. All I know is my heart hurts.
I know. I do like that she's at least coming around and showing she has a heart. That's more than can be said for some others. People look at me as a white chick and sadly a lot of the time let the racism really fly. Even the dismissive comments annoy me, and they're never said when obvious people of color are in the room. I do have some African blood, date men of all colors, and many black people as part of my family and of course friends. Not everyone knows that though so I constantly hear anti BLM stuff.
