Black Lives Matter

We stand against injustice

The buffaloViolence was not an isolated incident but one thread in a web of anti-Black hatred.



The 10 Black people murdered in Buffalo, New York, lived in a country with a different set of laws than those of the United Kingdom: When the white supremacist Payton Gendron drove 200 miles from his home to a grocery store in a Black neighborhood in Buffalo, he was well armed. They died in a Tops grocery store because they were Black and wanted to buy food on a Saturday in America.


The massacre unleashed a wave of Black anger and grief. But we don’t know exactly where to put it. Are we mad at the particular person who committed this heinous act? Are we angry with the media personalities who traffic in explicit and implicit anti-Black racism? Are we infuriated by the long history of these events that stalk our people? Are we grieving the innocent lives lost? Perhaps we are upset with churches that seem indifferent to cries of Black pain, or perhaps we hurt because this incident calls to mind our own less deadly experiences of racial trauma.


Or perhaps we are reeling because we know that friends and neighbors will denounce this particular evil, but will soon be at the school-board or church-council meetings calling every discussion of racism “critical race theory” and therefore a threat to the republic.By Esau McCaulley


Who we are?

Black Lives Matter Georgia is committed to nonviolent action across America. Blmg draws from the experiences of those who have suffered at the hands of violence. We ask: what must our response be? And our answer- as tentative, grappling, searching, and seeking as it maybe is that it falls upon us as citizens living in the communities across America to utilize all nonviolent means available to stand up against violence in any form, to engage the youths in schools and the community, most definitely; We must protest against violence by peaceful marches and protest against violence. We must also move from protest to active nonviolent programming. Nonviolence cannot be a single-day event- it must be a commitment we make and act upon every day of our lives. What might this active nonviolent program look like? And how might we act in solidarity with community leaders all across America? By working with our children, teaching them the Nonviolent way of resolving conflictsand their interaction with law enforcement.


Despite the contemporary public’s discourse regarding the embrace of human diversity within the United States, Black males still are perennially brutalized, killed, and negatively stereotyped. Recent events regarding police killings underscore the reality that even though Black males have the same constitutional and civil rights as all other citizens, in practice their rights are often violated or denied. The negative stereotypes of Black males are problematic because it creates an environment and negative perception of them that causes some police officers to claim that they feared for their life before shooting. The history of police oppression and killing of Black males and teaching critical race theory as a theoretical perspective helps to explain this pervasive social inequity.

Black people are far too readily denied decent education and employment, stopped and frisked, apprehended, incarcerated, criminalized, animalized, and killed. No one should take for granted their advantages over others in health, talents, abilities, success, a happy childhood, or congenial home conditions. One must pay a price for all these boons. What one owes in return is a special responsibility for others’ lives.
