Today #BlackoutTuesday is all about supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement. To properly support #BlackoutTuesday what is asked is for the Black community to not spend any money, in a stand to show how valuable the black community is to the economy.

Apple’s Itunes shows there support:

Part of supporting this movement has went wrong, while people are supporting the movement by reposting all black images, it seems people are using the wrong hash tag which has been claimed as silencing their root message. If you have posted an all black image under #blacklivesmatter – you are being asked to update the hashtag to the appropriate hashtag to show your support #BlackoutTuesday. By using the #blacklivesmatter hashtag – which purpose is to bring awareness to injustice in the black community – you are actually silencing message. A clear example shown below.

It has come to my attention that many allies are using #BlackLivesMatter hashtag w black image on insta. We know that’s it no intent to harm but to be frank, this essentially does harm the message. We use hashtag to keep ppl updated. PLS stop using the hashtag for black images!!

stop posting black squares under the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag on Instagram. it is intentionally and unintentionally hiding critical information we are using on the ground and online.

This movement has gathered a lot of support from all other races and nationalities as daily continued abuse of the black race continues to poise the news.

It’s hard to know what to say because I’ve been dealing with racism my entire life. That said, it’s rearing its ugly head right now & by God it’s time to deal with it once & for all. My team & I stand for justice. Convos will be had & action will be taken. #THESHOWMUSTBEPAUSED

Tomorrow will not be business as usual. We will spend our day actively listening, reflecting, and discussing how we can best support meaningful change.⁠#theshowmustbepaused #blackouttuesday

We are all human as such we should be equal, but in 2020 the black community is still fighting race issues and all that comes with being opposed for so long.
