Watch “unapologetically black” Spoken word poet Too Black’s satirical poem, ‘#WhiteLivezMatter’. A poem that seeks to “expose the absurdity behind the misnomer known as ‘Reverse Racism’ within the political climate of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement”.
Too Black tells us: “I wrote ‘#WhiteLivesMatter’ because I grew tired of the sociopathic nature at which some whites sought to silence black protests. They are often whining about nothing more than hurt feelings yet falsely equating those hurt feelings with systemic oppression. Instead of addressing this false equivalency straightforward I decided to mirror it through satire.”
