These recent weeks have been challenging for us as black people. Regardless of where in the world you are, it has been difficult for us not to see and not to be impacted by what has gone on in America, in Canada, and what is going on in the world at large.
And a lot of the conversation that is being had is around racism, and in this particular moment in time, I understand that all lives matter. I do understand that. But the focus at this particular moment in time, whether it be in America and Canada and other countries around the world is Black Lives Matter. And I say, ‘Black Lives Matter’. But it doesn't mean that only black lives matter. All lives matter. But at this point in time, at this point in history, we are discussing the fact that black lives do matter.
