"Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression...To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a necessary prerequisite for wanting the same for others."
