11 Misconceptions of the Black Lives Matter Movement
Created by Tarik Cruz
Whenever I personally hear or see things about the Black Lives Matter movement, I think of our global fight for racial equality, not just for Black Americans but all people of African descent people across the globe. I think about how it isn’t about “who has it worst”, but more so about why it’s important that we focus on equality for black people right now. Unfortunately, however, that is not how everyone sees it. To some, when they see or hear about the Black Lives Matter movement, they think of riots, violence, destruction, and chaos. With this video project, I try to focus on one example I experienced, which shows how things can be misinterpreted, especially in relation to the BLM movement. Through this video, I essentially want to share how if we truly listen to one another, we can arrive at a better understanding about what is taking place in our society.
