The Americans United Again movement is dedicated to our country living up to its values, which include the right to life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness for all human beings,. It is for that reason that we proudly support the #BlackLivesMatter movement. While our country has arguably the best framework for equality & democracy we have a sordid history of not living up to those values through our treatment of non-Whites as well as those who make up other cultural minorities (the LBGTQ, community, women, disabled persons, etc). The #BlackLivesMatter movement stands firmly on the American ideals of justice & liberty being afforded to all, not just that which we accept as "normal" or "default". The movement seeks to gain justice for ALL lives, to include all races, genders, socioeconomic levels via the elimination of the practice of White Supremacy. The practice of White Supremacy, the practice of society valuing Whites, particularly wealthy White cis-gender, heterosexual men, is a practice older than our country itself & has harmed our own ability to proudly & accurately say that we as a nation live up to the ideals our founders. Founders who practiced White Supremacy as well but who's dreams of having a society where all could be free to be themselves provided their actions didn't impede on another's freedoms, are invaluable. It is with that we proudly say in solidarity that #BlackLivesMatter.
