Here is what needs to be said to Black Lives Matter and The Black Panthers.
A man is going viral for questioning where Black Lives Matter activists are during the flooding in Louisiana. Jerry L. Washington, a Baton Rouge native, posted a video to Facebook, asking why activists haven’t done anything to help the majority African-American city. “Where are the Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers?” Washington says in the video. “Because I ain’t seen one Black Panther boat or one Black Lives Matter boat. All I see is our own people from our own city saving us.” — “All the drama that was going on with the Alton Sterling killing, they came out with guns ready to go to war. But here we go, all these people flooded out and truly in need of help and we can’t find not one of them,” Washington says. “If y’all out there, where ya at? Where ya boats? Where ya money? Where ya food? Where ya services at? … Black Lives Matter: Obviously we must [not] matter too much, because I ain’t seen y’all yet, when we really need ya.” The video has quickly gone viral with more than 2.5 million views.
Thank you Jerry.
