“I just have to get this off my chest…I know there is A LOT that’s being posted on your social feeds right now (myself also contributing to the over-saturation), but please, PLEASE do not post something that’s showing support if you don’t really mean it. These cries against racial injustice aren’t a fad. It’s not “the cool thing to do”. Don’t post something just because everyone else is. Mean what you are sharing. Believe in it. That’s where the real change will come from. From within.”

#BlackLivesMatter is more than just a trending hashtag.
