Black lives matter was an International Activist Movement, started in the United States in the year 2013. It was initiated to fight racism and violence against black people. The name Black Lives Matter implies the killing of black people by the police that could not be justified by them. It is said that black people were been killed more by the police rather than other people.
Society should not discriminate against people on the basis of their color. Whether black or white, everyone should get an equal amount of respect from others. The lives and humanity of black people are also the same as that of white people. The activists of Black Lives Matter have held many powerful protests in the cities across the United States as well as internationally. Black Lives Matter Global Network Association is the main organization that gives affiliation to the other chapters running in those states. It is a non-profit organization present in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Black Lives Matter was started as an online movement initially using the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on various social media platforms. It was started by three black community organizers- Patrisse Khan- Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tormeti. The movement was started in 2013, and even if we see it today, not much has changed. Black people in those countries are still not treated properly. Even in the year 2020, many people were killed by their police officials. Students from their childhood years have been taught not to discriminate against any profession, and that all professions are equally important, then why can’t they be taught not to discriminate against black people.
