Rapper Tony Tillman Has A Message For Anyone Who Says "All Lives Matter"
Anyone who has spoken out against police brutality has run into the same brick wall: explaining why the phrase Black Lives Matter is necessary, while All Lives Matter is harmful.
Tennessee rapper Tony Tillman has grown frustrated with the conversations, so he’s turning the phrase against its users. On his new song “All Lives Matter,” the talented MC passionately decries systemic racism, recounts his own experiences with racial discrimination from police, and plainly explains the point of Black Lives Matter: “Why get offended when I say Black Lives Matter / I know All Lives Matter / I’m just saying mine too.”
