In a recent interview Chili, of the famed group, TLC, was asked how she felt about the BLM movement, to which Chili responded, “All lives matter.”
Watch the interview here:
I honestly feel that Chili’s response was due to a lack of understanding of what BLM actually means. The acronym literally stands for Black Lives Matter, but the movement is in response specifically to the police violence aimed at black people. BLM does not mean white lives do not matter. Sigh…I honestly wish more people would refrain from commenting about that which they do not understand. I think it’s perfectly okay to say, “I don’t know,” as opposed to offering an ignorant response.
Still, I’m willing to not hold these statements against Chili because I truly believe her statements were born out of ignorance. Others haven’t been so kind. Check out some of the comments:
