S is for...Statements


This one is most definitely going to be short and sweet.


So, I’m going to nip this one in the bud before it just spirals out of control, gets out of hand, no real progress ends up being made, and we just end up back at square one....AGAIN...in ‘X’ number of months time.


Because I’m bored of it. I’m bored of the cycle, AND my fear is, unless I highlight what I think is going on here, then my concern is that we will never surpass this moment. We won’t surpass this state or situation that KEEPS arising.


If I end up being a scapegoat then so be it. I don’t really fucking care. I’d rather try and fail than not try at all.


[Insert word here] Lives Matter


Black Lives Matter.


All Lives Matter.


There’s a very clear and evident notion going around about what you can and should say on this. Which to be quite honest is really pissing me off.


So let me break it down...


The notions of ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘All Lives Matter’ are clearly in the same theoretical boat. I’m going to call it the ‘Lives Matter Boat’. But on the boat, generally speaking, the black lives have got shitter seats compared to the white lives. Generally speaking the white lives have got a lot of the good seats. Like a fucking shit load of them. Not only that, but clearly a lot of the black lives are being kicked off the boat, for no real reason other than being black.


Well, from my seat on the boat, that’s mental.


My point is, stop wasting time arguing about what the ‘right thing to say’ or ‘right way to say it is’.

The sentiment is the same.

The sentiment is the same.

The.

Sentiment.

Is.

The.

Fucking.

Same.


Lives. Matter.


We are all on the boat.

We are all on the boat.

We are all on the boat.


The point is people are asking for help.

The point is people are asking for help.


So the question is, are you going to help or not?
