We have groups espousing black rights and gay rights and women's rights and children's rights and all kinds of rights for all kinds of humans, we have the animal rights groups who think animals are more important than humans and should have equal rights, and we have me who thinks that plants should have rights and that PLANT LIVES MATTER! An idea whose time has not come.
The lives of BLACK Henbane matter, and BLACK Cherry, and BLACK Cherry Tomatoes, and BLACK Walnut, and BLACK Opium Poppies, and BLACK Dracula orchids, not to mention the BLACK Bat Flower, BLACK Lace Elderberry, BLACK Mourning Widow, BLACK Velvet plant, BLACK Mondo grass, Black Snakesbead Iris, BLACK Basil, BLACK Bugbane, BLACK Devil's tongue, BLACK Cow Parsley, BLACK Cobra Lilies and dark Chocolate Cosmos, to name just a few BLACK plants. The lives of ALL black plants matter.
Now to the issue of the lives of black people. Yes, the police do murder unarmed black teens with alarming frequency and without accountability. I have railed on US drug laws for years because they are enforced by law enforcement in a statistically proven racist manner. But black parents please take note, IF you buy your black teen a realistic looking gun that is missing the orange safety cone tip, they YOU, not the police, are responsible for his fatal shooting. Do NOT buy him a fake gun that looks real, then complain when he is shot by the police. This is YOUR fault. Be aware that YOU put a target on his back. The police must assume the gun is real. Their lives depend on this assumption. They have only a split second to react.
The 'Black Lives Matter' folks should realize two truths: Most violence upon black people is far and wide caused by OTHER BLACK people. Yikes! And, disrupting a liberal candidate like Bernie Sanders is just plain dumb and dumber and very counter-productive. Why alienate all the liberal whites who mostly agree with you already? Your real enemy lies and lives in your own black communities and they have black skin, and they are not black plants. Black PLANTS MATTER!
