When We Know Better, We Should Do Better

Banteay Srei - She was so courageous travelling around on her own in a country where kidnappings, government corruption, murder and use of illegal drugs were prevalent.

Having some of the experiences I have had from birth has helped me be courageous. Being bold brings colour to your life, being brown brings boldness to your life. #BLM

The Black Lives Matter Movement has been gathering pace since 31st May following the death of George Floyd in police custody in view of the world. Antagonists have made their opinions known, including me. I have read so many blogs and responses, undoubtedly for me they tend to fall into 5 categories

  1. White people who share the belief that black lives matter and understand and progress the agenda
  2. White people who share the belief that black lives matter, but misunderstand and distract the agenda – for example stating ‘all lives matter’.
  3. Black people who share the belief that black lives matter and understand and progress the agenda
  4. Black people who share the belief that black lives matter, but misunderstand and distract the agenda
  5. Then all the others who share varying other beliefs from Black lives don’t matter to black lives matter the most.

Is this why there is limited progress on the BLM agenda?
