Bloggers for Black Lives

We’re often told that style is a way to speak to the world without saying a word. So, today, I’m joining a few of my sister bloggers to speak about violence against black bodies. Conservative politicians often use the notion of black on black as a disparaging phrase for African Americans. As you can see, my sister bloggers and I find a more creative use for blackness. To acknowledge the movement for racial justice, we’re all wearing black today and uniting as bloggers for black lives.

    Could you please point me to examples of this “conservative politicians often use the notion of black on black as a disparaging phrase for African Americans.”
