Black Lives Matter

Across the United States and around the world, adults and kids are raising their voices against racism and police violence. The Scratch Team stands with these protestors. Black Lives Matter. No one deserves to grow up in a society that harms you, silences you, or prevents you from reaching your full potential because of the color of your skin.

Many Scratchers have already begun to support the Black Lives Matter movement with animations, poems, MAPs, studios, comments, and more. We’re so proud to see you using your creativity and passion to spread awareness and demand change! We want to reassure you that these types of projects, studios, and comments are welcome on Scratch. Scratch welcomes people of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, sexual orientations, and gender identities, and we say this clearly in our Community Guidelines.

We also wanted to address the phrase “all lives matter.” The phrase “Black Lives Matter” was created because of the experiences, fears, and problems that Black people face. Many people have used “all lives matter” as a way of saying that all people face similar challenges regardless of their race. This is not true. The purpose of the Black Lives Matter movement isn't to exclude others, but to highlight the violence and racism that Black people face every day in hopes of changing it. So we ask that you not say “all lives matter” when you see someone else saying “Black Lives Matter” on Scratch.

For many of you, this might be the first time you’re hearing about terms like systemic racism or even Black Lives Matter. We wanted to share some books, videos, and articles to help you learn more about this movement and the challenges Black Americans face every day:

An evil kumquat got past my protection and ate my signature. I want to replace it with a banner containing links, but I don't know how. If you do, tell me on my profile.

Hello! My name is Ezlambry! I've been using Scratch since 2014.
Sadly, the rest of my forum signature was eaten by an evil kumquat. I strongly dislike evil kumquats.
