“Bottomline, HKHS doesn’t believe that using social media messages fights the actual good fight of the idea of B.L.M. (Black Lives Matter). HKHS isn’t talking about B.L.M. Movement which is a movement that doesn’t really benefit black people but rather symbolism and tokenism. Much like these social media messages that are placed on various NBA players’ jerseys. These messages only give folks a false sense of temporal feel good dopamine satisfiers. But nothing comes of it but just talk. Group Economics is where it’s at especially for black folks as a whole in the United States. A form of Group Economics that NBA players would’ve shown in grand fashion is by sitting on the rest of this NBA Season and debunking a NBA Restart. This form of radicalization would’ve sent a radicalized message that the NBA populace consisting of 80% black players would put the NBA on notice that black lives indeed would verily, verily matters. Other then that then it’s just the same ol, same ol rhetoric as usual!” -HKHS
