Singer Billie Eilish blasts “all lives matter” movement
American singer, Billie Eilish has reacted to the “all lives matter” propaganda that followed the “black lives matter” protest.
Following the death of George Floyd, thousands of people in the United States have staged protests over police brutality, white privilege and racism.
Eilish slammed the All Lives Matter movement that has been continuously used to invalidate the #BlackLivesMatter campaign.
“I’ve been trying to take this week to figure out a way to address this delicately,” she began her statement.
“I have an enormous platform and I try really hard to be respectful and take time to think through what I say and how I say it. But holy f-cking sh-t, I’m just gonna start talking.”
“If I hear one more white person say “aLL liVeS maTtEr” one more f-cking time, I’m gonna lose my f-cking mind,” she continued.
“Will you shut the f-ck up? No one is saying your life is not hard. No one is saying literally anything at all about you. All you mfs do is find a way to make everything about yourself.”
“Society gives you privilege just for being white. You can be poor, you can be struggling. And still, your skin colour is giving you more privilege than you even realize and nobody is saying that makes you better than anyone.
”It just lets you live your life without having to worry about surviving simply because of your skin colour!!! You are privileged!!”
“If all lives matter why are back people killed for just being black?
