Today we're going to try to unpack why the phrase "Black Lives Matter" mean so much in a society in which being Black often times means being assaulted on different levels from all aspects.  We're not just talking about the multi-level assaults of systemic and individual racism against Black people, but the general feeling of insecurity that many Black people feel as we navigate through everyday life.
