Things you don’t say if you believe #BlackLivesMatter

“Well, he shouldn’t have been pointing his fake gun at people in the park.”

“We (white people) don’t get all mad just because some white person was shot.”

“Those people (protestors) are just trying to cause trouble.”

“I don’t care if you’re black, white, blue or purple. This isn’t about race.”

“Then don’t get in a cop’s face.”

“He shouldn’t have been so fat, then maybe he could breathe.”

(shrugs shoulders)

(rolls eyes)

“I don’t know why this is all of a sudden such an issue.”

“Black people are just angry.”

“Why does it have to be about black lives?”

“I’m not racist, I just don’t care.”

“Well, nothing they (protestors) do is going to change anything. Just shut up and go home.”

(changes subject)

“Can’t you just go on with life and be happy (and stop talking to me about why #blacklivesmatter)?”
