As a Black American male who was born into an environment where my biological father was absent, raised on the west side of Chicago and who attends a Historically Black University (also known as an HBCU) I am totally against Black Lives Matter (BLM). The sentiments is overly obvious; of course Black lives matter, in fact any human life has an intrinsic value given (not by government or by a “social justice” group) but given by God. However, the organization (Black Lives Matter Inc.) and the surrounding infrastructure I do not (and in fact cannot) support.
