Oh. My. God.
She said “all lives matter” countless times. This is why that phrase is ridiculous - because you can tell that she doesn’t really mean that all lives matter when she says it as an insult, in between derogatory racial remarks and telling her to “go back to Africa” and that her “ancestors owned you,” implying that she believes black people are not really worthy to be considered as part of the “all” that matters, but rather the lowly other.
^ Perfectly summed it up. Plus the video speaks volumes about this country. White people hardly, if ever, step in and speak out against racism. They will merely sit and onlook since they’re not on the receiving end, or silently agree with the racist rant, or think about how horrible it is, or lowly say how horrible it is after the fact, or ignore what’s happening altogether, or have the same attitude as that older white man who said aloud that that white couple, as well as that Black girl’s mother, were “acting like fools.”
She’s one of those girls who doesn’t know what she’s doing, but she wants to know everything will be worth it one day. She isn’t amazing at one thing, just good at a lot of things, and that’s all she’ll ever be. She wishes she could be different, but she lives her life to the fullest anyway. All she truly needs is love to keep her sane. She looks at her world like it’s a book, with pages being read every day. She’s her own worst enemy and hardest critic. She knows she has flaws and tries to accept them, even though she knows she never fully will. More than anything, though, she just wants to make a difference one day, and she wants someone to remember her name.Follow for more quotes about life
