Black Lives Matter is the issue of bringing attention to the African-American lives being lost due to police brutality. The effect of this movement has been huge, everyone knows about it and it is always being brought up in the news and has made a huge impact on social media. But, there are some groups who like to argue against the movement with tags like, #alllivesmatter and #bluelivesmatter. Of course they do but this is about what needs to be brought into light right now because this is what needs attention right now. These tags are being used to silence our voices. We need more people to be on our side and to listen to cause change.
