The eldest son of Michael Jackson, Prince Jackson, is getting slammed on social media after comments he made about Black Lives Matter. This comes after two Black men were shot and killed by the police.
The 19-year-old said this on his Twitter account (read from the bottom up):
But there isn't just one at risk child other minorities are targets and these murders need to change the world https://t.co/80bauySket— Prince Jackson (@princemjjjaxon) July 7, 2016
I understand that you want to focus on #blacklivesmatter but why only focus on one life that matters when all do?— Prince Jackson (@princemjjjaxon) July 7, 2016
Why just protect only one race I honestly cried when I saw #AltonSterling son cry because Ik what it's like to have a father taken— Prince Jackson (@princemjjjaxon) July 7, 2016
2 Muslim boys were brutally beaten because of their religion. I stand by my statement all lives matter. The media tells the stories it wants— Prince Jackson (@princemjjjaxon) July 7, 2016
Following his comments, the social media community wasted no time schooling Prince on just why Black Lives Matter was necessary as a separate movement.
