I wear my Black Lives Matter shirt, for those who won’t. For those that are confused, unsure, or even offended at the idea. I wear this shirt, because I am a combat veteran, and I don’t need reminding why I fought, or whom I fought for. I believe Black Lives Matter; not because I might have black ancestors, not because I have black friends, not because I’m being told I ought to. I freely wear it because it is simply the right step toward ensuring Black Lives are held just as precious as anyone else’s, including my white self. I wear it because I will not tolerate social, or racial injustice, and those who oppress will know it the moment they see me.
