“So which half of me matters?” asks my bi-racial daughter.
By definition a racist is someone who is discriminatory or prejudiced against someone based on race. So I’m confused. The “Black Lives Matter” movement is organized by a group of racists crying discrimination? If that isn’t the pot calling the kettle… er, aluminum.
I’ve got a better idea. Why not a crusade called “Fat Lives Matter”? It’s a proven fact that fat people are discriminated against and since fat knows no race they could never be accused of being racist. On the other hand, if the people running the movement implied that skinny people didn’t matter or mattered less, they would be bigoted. That would create an outcry as quick and loud as the shot heard round the world!
Since color seems to be the issue, maybe there could be a group called, “Black Pets Matter.” My dog, Wally, would be a perfect specimen. But that kind of implies that Delbert, who is brown and black isn’t quite up to snuff....
