That's not how Black Out Tuesday works.

Swiped the photo from a dear friend. The words are mine.

I had someone demand I remove the tags from *the previous two days posts*, on Instagram.

A white woman demanded this. Obviously she doesn't understand how tagging works and that my posts are very likely buried under the posts overnight and today, using those tags. By the way, lady? That's not how you speak out.

There's a big difference in *not using those tags for one day* and *demanding they be removed from all previous posts*. I get not using those tags *today*, I'm good with that. I'm not good with white people demanding I remove the tags from all posts.

Saying nothing makes us complicit. We owe it to them to speak up and out.

Until black lives matter, all lives matter is a false statement.

Until people of colors lives matter, all lives matter is a false statement.

Until trans lives matter, all lives matter is a false statement.

Until a LGBTQ + lives matter, a lives matter is a false statement.

I am antifascist. You should be too. Speak out against injustice. Do not be silent. Do not be complicit.

(There's also a theory going around about what if everyone doing this is being played by white supremacists. That's a good possibility, though I doubt they're intelligent enough to come up with something like this.)
