#BlackLivesMatter

Donald Trump was just elected President of the United States. OMG, that was my first time saying it, let alone, typing it out loud. But that’s our reality and now is a time more than any other that we should come together as one. Prior to the election, we as black people have been dealing with way more issues than a little bit. From racism to not only police brutality, but police taking the lives of our innocent youth, we have just about had it.

The Black Lives Matter movement was designed to unite all black lives to campaign against the issues that plague our community today. What started with a simple hashtag in the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin, has exceeded beyond measure. People of all races across the world, including celebrities, participate in hash-tagging, protests, and anything that will get the attention of those who wrong us. But there are some celebrities, specifically rappers, who aren’t on the BLM bandwagon.

Demonstrators listen to speakers before a march through the Loop to protest police abuse, December 13, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois. About 25 of the approximately 200 demonstrators were arrested during the protest which weaved its way through sidewalks packed with Christmas shoppers. The protests was one of many staged nationwide in response to grand juries' failure to indict police officers involved in the the deaths of Michal Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York.
