Co-founder, Marissa Johnson of Black Lives Matter Accuses ‘White Folks’ of being racist for saying ‘All Lives Matter.’ Johnson says it’s the new racial slur for white people.
In a Fox News interview Johnson said that white Americans created the conditions that require a phrase like ‘Black Lives Matter’. She continued by describing how difficult it is to grow up knowing that you are hated and that your people are being gunned down in the streets and rounded up for incarceration.
Marissa Johnson- Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter:
White Americans have created the conditions that require a phrase like ‘Black Likes Matter.’ Do you know how horrific it is to grow up as a child in a world that so hates you? While you’re literally being gunned down in the street, while you’re being rounded up and mass incarcerated and forced into prison slavery. Black Lives Matter is not a strong enough statement for me. The Democrats have always been reliant on the black vote. Part of what we’re doing is waking black voters up to their power as a voting black, within the Democratic party.
