It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Black. Lives. MATTER!

So yeah. A football player takes a knee during the national anthem and the country goes insane.

Two more black men doing nothing wrong are shot dead, one by the side of the road and one while reading a book in his car.

WTF is wrong with this world? I am so very DONE with this wholesale slaughter of black men. And then that tired out meme of Not All Cops.

Except that it seems to be just that. The good ones sure aren't speaking up about it, so they are fucking well complicit.

Some people just want to watch the whole world burn

I agree.
WTF is happening? The violence towards black men, particularly (let's not forget that this also happens to black women & children too), is simply astounding.

I'm not familiar with the 'not all cops' meme (that's ok though).

It's pretty much the same things as the "not all men" bit when discussing sexual violence and misogyny.

Saying that "not all X" do whatever bad thing is the topic is not really adding to the discussion. It's either a deliberate attempt to derail it, or it's someone trying to make the problem go away so they don't have to feel guilty about it.
