Black Lives Matter: racism, terrorism and pride. An afro-american movement that polirizes
A few years ago it was felt that the afro-communities of the Americas had ceased to exist. Apart from a few stars in the fields of television, music and sport, it was felt outside the Americas that the Black people had ceased to exist or to fight as a community. Then there was this black president, Barack Obama, who showed the world that Black people were able to fight to the highest office in any country in the world.The presidencial election 2008 was a big challenge for the black communities. It was very interesting during the presidential campaign of Barack Obama to see with what enthusiasm, commitment and passion Black Americans were able to pursue a goal and achieve it. Black Africans have rarely been as admiring and proud of their brothers and sisters in the Americas.
The traditionally pedantic image of the lazy Black, incompetent, criminal, and so on, could no longer convince because of these Backs that they one could see at work day and night and working tirelessly for the victory of Obama. The traditional image of the White still trapping the Black, opting and humiliating him could not continue to hold because of these Whites who were seen working hand in hand with Blacks and in respect for each other.
A few years later the Black Lives Matter movement was launched. Once again, black women and men were working hard to promote this movement and to draw the world's attention to the injustices and ill-treatment Blacks are victims of. Also once again, we have been seeing white women and men working hard to promote this movement and to draw the world's attention to the injustices and ill-treatment Blacks are victims of, showing that black dignity is actually is not only a concern of Blacks, but of mankind.
Black Lives Matter is, first of all, a movement of Black people who struggle for the well-being of Black people, but also a movement of honest Whites with good will fighting for the well-being of Blacks in general, and for that of Afro-Americans in particular. This is the part of Whites, or rather Non-Blacks who have understood that the well-being of any society in which Black people live also depends on the welfare of the Blacks. This clearly demonstrates that Black Lives Matter, contrary to what its detractors claim, is neither a racist nor a terrorist movement, but simply a movement of legitimate claims of justice for the disenfranchised. All Non-whites of good will have understood it. An untiring effort must nevertheless continue to be made to make it understood to those who have not yet understood it or do not want to understand it
So we encourage Black Lives Matter, Movement for Black Lives and all the other movements in their activities and say: go ahead! The whole world is proud of you and, especially Black Africa.
