"It's incredibly hurtful," said Broadway star Jelani Alladin.
Would you believe, 'getting on with your life without giving these morons the attention and approbation they crave'..?
Awwww, his widdle face...!
And nor is he the only one.
"And you're telling me that you have no hesitation posting a selfie of yourself... or what you're eating for dinner, and yet you're telling me that you're afraid to say something because you might hurt other people's feelings? Or you don't know what to say? Or you don't have an audience to reach? Were you thinking those things when you posted the other photos? I don't think you were."Yes, how dare you think you have a life that doesn't revolve around some vacuous mouthbreather hyperventilating 24/7 about the latest cause?
...as fitness influencer Trammell Logan tells CBS News, it can even be hurtful when white people post messages about #blacklivesmatter side-by-side with more frivolous content. "In your natural state of being distraught or sadness, if something extremely personal happens to you, I can't see how you can be in that state and post about it or be about it and then five minutes later like post a cocktail mix, or like you dancing. Our emotions don't necessarily work like that," Logan said.I don't know what a 'fitness influencer' is, and reading that, I really don't want to know, because they clearly have a ticket on the 'B' Ark...
Catherine Moran Ayeni, an attorney in Texas, told CBS News that for her, worse than total silence is when people respond to a "black lives matter" post with the comment "all lives matter."
"It's a very painful kind of silence because it removes our voice," she said.Who'd hire an attorney so stupid as to declare to a national broadcaster that she has 'no voice'?
