Seth Meyers Talks BLM And How America Is Still Very Pro-White

Oh, thank god Seth Meyers is back. In the absences of both Samantha Bee and John Oliver, I’ve been lacking just the right combination of sincerity and snark to address both the horrific shootings last week and horrific shit that people have been saying about them. Luckily Jon Stewart’s heir apparent is able to perfectly sum up how I feel on both.

So I know it’s been stated better than I’ll be able to, but we’re going to need to properly talk about the differences in how people respond to the statement “Black Lives Matter.” And I also know I’m going to sound a little too much like everyone’s favorite Southern comic, but here are a few quick guidelines:

- If someone says, “Black lives matter” and you hear “Black Lives Matter Too,” you’re good.

- If someone says, “Black lives matter” and you hear “Black Lives Matter So Please Stop Murdering Us,” you get it.

- But if someone says, “Black lives matter” and you hear “Only Black Lives Matter,” you might be a racist.

- If someone says, “Black lives matter” and you hear “Black Lives Matter More Than White Lives,” you might be a racist.

- If someone says, “Black lives matter” and you hear “Black Lives Matter And Nobody Else’s Do,” then stop saying stuff out loud because you’re a racist jackass.

Most importantly, if you’re going to argue that the focus should be on how “All Lives Matter,” great. But then back it up by focusing on all the lives that don’t exist anymore because of that racism problem you keep arguing we don’t have.
