!! Are you against BLM? Do you have any questions about it? Look at the very bottom of the description for information about why Black Lives Matter !!
Question of the week: What can you do to show you care about black lives outside of Scratch?
BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER! THIS IS UNFAIR! BLACK AND WHITE ARE STILL NOT EQUAL! READ ON TO UNDERSTAND WHY THIS STUDIO IS DIFFERENT!
Yes, there are many other BLM studios. BUT, not as active as before, not as many projects as before, not as much people care anymore! The only problem is there is NO change! BLACK and WHITE are STILL not equal!!!!!!!!!! WHY? Why are protests dying down? People are moving on! People have other things to worry about other than black peoples lives! SERIOUSLY?! We need change!
So, what can we do as kids? We are just kids here on Scratch? YES EXACTLY! You are on Scratch! And guess what? When George Floyd passed away there was featured BLM projects, top loved projects, BLM studios being featured, but Scratch is now featuring other things! Because we are now interested in other things!
BLM studios can't get featured without kids recommending them, BLM projects can't get top loved without us loving them, projects are not longer popular without us creating them, NO CHANGE CAN HAPPEN ON SCRATCH WITHOUT US!
We ask EVERYBODY to ask us to be a temporary manager and invite all your followers!
We can do more then comment the words "BLM!" in a Black Lives Matter studio! Just how you work hard earning followers, earning likes and favs, getting F4F or whatever! We can put that much effort in protesting!
Because by protesting we are not earning followers, we are saving lives!
Because, #BLM or as I like to say #BLSM Black Lives STILL Matter.

For anyone who is concerned about other people from other races lives I'm going to tell you a something I want you to know, first I want to let you know I am not black and I come from countries where others get killed for no reason and there is a lot of war but I think you should listen:
We are not saying that only Black Lives Matter we are saying that black people need our help now. To be honest with you on my other Scratch accounts I did not check my follower count in weeks. People are coming to my profile congratulating me on followers and I'm like what? But guys, I know a bunch of famous people can say that too because they want to get more famous, but really this is my main focus on Scratch. I am passionate about this. I started out not knowing anything about BLM and I can't say I know more now, but all I know that EVERYONE needs to be equal to one another. This studio focuses on black, if you disagree go to another studio. Period. I don't need anymore fighting and mean stuff in the comments.

Would you like to argue that criminals deserve to be shot/brutalized because they committed previous crimes?
Please review the United States constitution-- specifically the Bill of Rights --and read through the 6th and 8th amendments:
Also understand the role of police in America: They are meant to apprehend criminals. Violence should be a last resort. Police should not be taking justice into their own hands.
