I read something a couple days ago that, as an influencer, I feel is important to share.
I’m sure it will trigger some of my readers and this will likely lead to unsubscribes. I’m completely okay with that because I believe it’s more important to take a stand for what you believe in than it is to try and appease everyone.
My blog post regarding my thoughts about George Floyd definitely sparked some anger and negativity towards me and I had some messages asking me to keep politics out of my message.
My message then and my message today has nothing to do with politics. It has everything to do with humanity.
So whether I offend you or not, I hope you understand that part of being open minded is being able to hear opposing viewpoints and not let it trigger you with anger.
Here’s the message I read:
For my “ALL Lives Matter” folks: When the Boston marathon was bombed everybody’s profile picture went “Boston strong.” Nobody said “ALL cities are strong!”
When the Las Vegas shooting happened, people changed their profile to “Stand with Vegas” and nobody said “what about MY city?”
Have you ever seen someone counter a “breast cancer” post with “what about colon cancer?”
But for some reason, if someone says “Black lives matter” it turns into an all inclusive “All lives matter”
It’s not an either/or proclamation. When there is a crisis we have always rallied around that particular group. It doesn’t discredit or diminish any other group. It just brings awareness and support to the group that needs attention.
For those of you taking a stand for your beliefs, I’m proud of you.
While I believe the riots and looting do WAY more harm than good, I’ve never been more proud to see our society coming together in peaceful protests against racism.
Lots of love,
