Agreed. Black boxes on Instagram is really the lowest form of "activism". 

And it's not just dumb white people doing it:smh:

He doesn’t get it. 
believe it or not- these black boxes speak VOLUMES when everyone is participating.  It is a sign of unity.  And it’s just for ONE DAY. get over it. Tomorrow you can go back to posting whatever you want.

but today is a moment of SILENCE for the lives lost.

He's right. The privileged were already silent and now they keep silent and uneducated with the mask of activism.

What's wrong with what he wrote? Posting black pictures is an excuse to not have to actively post about BLM. They are bullsh*t and don't do anything good to anyone. Sign petitions and donate

Can't you try to feel? Never seen the future so real

It's one perspective, and a good one. A "blackout" is basically a silent protest for those that don't dare to riot on the streets. He wants a more proactive approach, ok fine.

PLEASE. 3/4 of the people that I follow on Instagram haven't said SH*T about what is happening, but today they suddenly ALL care, when they can jump on another Instagram trend

But when Azealia Banks says that reducing black lives to a black square on social media is for attention and minimizes the actual movement, y’all crucify her

I don't really understand this argument.

It's not like people haven't been spreading around information, signing petitions, donating, going to protests, etc.

This is literally the first time I've seen him talk about anything related to BLM. He shouldn't be talking.

I get how some people are seeing it come across that way but it's not just the box, It's also people collectively agreeing to not post anything at all to give the BLM Movement as much social media attention as it can.

It's just one method. People who are just posting and that's it, Yes that's doing the absolute bare minimum and that's a problem but many are using it as a sign of solidarity, giving attention to the movement while also helping in other ways.
