For people who believe that this Black Lives Matter movement is making other races irrelevant or lesser in any way: This is not putting black lives above anyone elses, its protecting people who have been oppressed for so many years for nothing but their skin color. I'm not agreeing with the way that some people are fighting for their beliefs, but this movement is to create equality among a divided culture that has normalized a lack of respect towards people who's current lives are defined by a horrific history. All races are important, no one is saying that any race is less than another, just because we are raising awarness and change for the better treatment of one. Don't be afraid to create change. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blm #blacklivesmatter #blackexcellence #feminist #melanin #blackhistory #blackgirlmagic #lgbt #racism #feminism #lgbtq #trump #blackhistorymonth #blackmen #blackqueen #memes #blacklove #blackwomen #love #black #loveislove #woke #hbcu #hiphop #gay #art #blackgirlsrock #maga #fucktrump #bhfyp

Bomb Alert💣 Y'all need to see this! “An outside agitator pulled up to the #AntiBlackRacismProtest in #SanBernardino and tried to set off an explosive device in the crowd. But someone threw the device back in his car, and it detonated. Then the crowd started putting hands and feet on the failed agitator.” 👀💯 via: #TariqNasheed 🚷🚷#stayhome 🚷🚷 Follow me 👉👉 @omoba.yomade 👈👈 for more. Turn on ur notification, Smile.

Ferguson, Missouri, the city where protests helped propel the Black Lives Matter movement into a nationwide crusade, elected its first Black mayor Tuesday night. Ella Jones will also be the city’s first female mayor. Ferguson, Missouri, the city where protests helped propel the Black Lives Matter movement into a nationwide crusade, elected its first Black mayor Tuesday night. Ella Jones will also be the city’s first female mayor. The St. Louis County Board of Elections confirmed the news of her win with the St. Louis Dispatch, reporting that she secured 54% of the vote. Her success in Tuesday’s election marks the second time Jones broke down barriers in her local government. In 2015, she became the first Black woman to serve on the Ferguson City Council. Despite the Black community making up nearly 70% of Ferguson’s population, the city’s government and police force were largely white at the time. Jones joined the city government just months after the 2014 death of Michael Brown, a Black teenager gunned down by a white police officer. His death sparked nationwide protests over police brutality and helped put the Black Lives Matter movement on the map. “It’s a sad way we got known all the way around the world,” she said in an interview last month. Her campaign largely focused on raising property values in Ferguson and attracting new homeowners. #vote2020 #vote #yourvotematters #blackexcellence #ferguson #explorepage

🐱OU Students KEPT IT REAL. I am a African American Male who teaches at a Predominantly White Institution. Most of my students do not look like me, and may have never had a black male teacher. . 💯To earn near perfect ratings in my class reviews this year provides me confidence that our OU students see me for who I am. 🌍To me, that is a positive sign for our future. We need more black male educators. . #blackexcellence #parhamstong #education #giveback #grateful #blackteachersmatter
