Everyone is beautiful, inside or out.
I think this is very true and all of us shall work together to stop inequality, weather its a school, home, or anywhere, we shall be strong and stay strong.
I think it is good we are being reminded about that every day, people can get hurt by inequality.
You don't have to be cool or popular to change this heartless and cruel world.

Very true. What if we all looked the same? No one would judge. This world can be really……. Excuse my language but stupid sometimes. But The people who are changing and making a difference are not at all

when green flag clicked
say [Dear George floyd, we are dearly sorry this is happening right now and you are.... yeah. But we hope you are enjoying your life in heaven :)]

Racism even doesn't exist! Getting a tan doesn't mean your a different race? Then why are you saying black people are a thing!
Racism does exist. You're right, getting a tan doesn't make you a different race, but what does that have to do with black people existing? Black lives matter and exist. To say that racism doesn't exist is very ignorant and rude.

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:

I of course support the cause BLM is said to be part of - that any person, regardless of their race, especially African-Americans facing violence, racism and hatred, are valued, are people, and matter.

But I also would like to remind everyone that not all police are violent and/or racist. Of course there are going to be bad cops, racist cops, and those are horrible people who should never have been trusted with the responsibility and power of a police officer, and should be imprisoned for their crimes. But, there are still good police men and women, and I think we need to recognize that just because they are part of an organization in which racists and violent criminals are also a part of doesn't mean we should blame the police altogether. We should blame the individuals who commit these terrible acts.

Also, I support the peaceful protests, but I don't think that burning down buildings and looting houses is honoring those people who were and still are victims of racism and violence. It's sad, though, that peaceful protests aren't heard as loudly by the media and our government, and the only real way to catch attention is through violence :(

I know that black lives matter, in fact, I support this! But sometimes it gets on my nerves because I just want to use scratch without politics. I know it is important, but, sometimes it gets on my nerves.

Check MII out Remember my old signature? Where I said my Wii was broken? My dad fixed it. Now all I got to do is find an unscratched game. Also, have you noticed that the only game that never breaks is Just Dance?







Why are you still here???
There's no earthly way of knowing… Exactly where you're scrolling…

Dude, stop.

Protesting is never over. That was just the large American Civil Rights Movement, and now the world is going through another Civil Rights Movement.

This isn't about politics, this is about human rights.
