Tuned out when there was mention of BLM

Enough about BLM. They are an insidious organization with a hidden agenda and is using systemic racism to push that narrative. PLEASE DO NOT DONATE TO BLM. Do your research about where your money is actually going (definitely not where you think it should). You are better off spending that dough on more stationery and it will further your own personal happiness. And if you share that with your friends and loved ones you can positively impact them.

I am a 20-something Viet woman with kids and I’m just tired of young people jumping on this bandwagon and not knowing crap about what they proclaim to support. So if not supporting BLM makes me racist then I rather be that than a sheep.
