Debunking Four Myths About Black Lives Matter

Franchesca Ramsey’s videos about race, pop culture, and feminism are essential watching. Her newest video gets at something many people have dealt with: How to respond to people who misconstrue the work of Black Lives Matter. She runs through proactive responses to four frustrating questions that often show up in our newsfeeds during discussions of racial equality and police violence: 1) What about “black on black” crime? 2) So are you saying police officers’ lives don’t matter? 3) Are you saying ONLY Black Lives Matter? That’s racist. 4) But what about white victims of police violence? 

If you’ve ever struggled to come up with a succinct response to these questions, Ramsey has some guidance for you. Check out her video below.
