Black Lives Matter: It’s not a political issue, it’s a matter of human rights.

It is time for change. People of color have dealt with oppression for too long. Police brutality, racial profiling, simply being targeted because of the color of their skin. Protests, riots, attempting to promote social justice and nothing is changing. Enough is enough. The NBA, WNBA and MLB boycotted their games Thursday night, August 26th after another instance of police brutality. Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a police officer. Athletes took a stand and refused to play games to protest what happened and what has been happening in the world to people of color. In this segment myself and Austin Jones a Rowan University Alumni, talk about the black lives matter movement, what the athletes have been doing to promote social justice and raising the voices of the black community. All lives can’t matter until black lives matter.
