SHERRY A. WELLS ON WHY BLACK LIVES MATTER IS STILL SO IMPORTANT

 

State Rep candidate says “Black Lives Matter means that you don't have a target on your back

 

George Floyd. Breanna Taylor. Elijah McClain. Too many others to mention. All household names. All murdered but the people with oaths to protect us.  All the Marches and protests draw attention, but we rarely see change happening and those responsible held accountable almost never.  

 

When Sherry first heard the phrase, Black Lives Matter, she admits, "Don't all lives matter?" It was explained to her as it has been to so many of us. Those who grew up in mostly white neighborhoods, or who thought the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “solved” this.  There is always some untold lesson you need to learn the hard way, and this year has been front-page, worldwide news.

 

Protests and marches were held worldwide, and the addition of cameras on cell phones have made a blind world “see” the injustices that have been happening all along.  It’s said that history doesn't repeat, but it does rhyme.  Same story, different day, different victim, in Anytown USA.  Sherry A. Wells is running for office to try and correct a broken system to make it safe for all.  “Not just because I'm running did I just discover black folk”  

 

As allies, it's our job to assist in this struggle.  To support the fight that has been in motion in America since before she existed.  That we need to do more than hear the plea of the oppressed.  We need to listen to their worries, fears, and anger.  Elie Wiesel is credited with saying “..Neutrality helps the oppressor..” and that “Action is the only remedy to indifference: the most insidious danger of all”  History doesn't repeat, but it does rhyme.
