While people will only pay attention to BLM after a while because most don’t really care and just wanted to look like they did.

However I know the movement is here to stay. Ever since Trayvon Matin we’ve been saying Black Lives Matter — way before any company or most people cares.

I also agree that little change will happen but I feel that apathy will be our undoing. Black people are split on exactly what to do moving forward and that’s extremely problematic.

It is also true that many people are taking advantage of the BLM label to make money. However, I really have no choice but to keep fighting.

They would love nothing more than for Black people to throw in the towel. They want us to be quiet and get back to work.
