A sign seen at the
Women's Day March in 2017 has now become one of the most important symbols in
America. The sign reads, “In this house
we believe, Black Lives Matter. Women’s rights are human rights. No human is illegal.
Science is real. Love is love. Kindness is everything.”
This sums up all the problems that America is facing right now. Even after three years, the slogan is still relevant and believe it or not, it has transformed the lives of many people.
Even now, during the Black Lives Matter movement, this one sign was quite prevalent and we cannot deny its impact. “No matter what the protest is, you can yank this out of your lawn and you're good to go,” says Jennifer Rosen Heinz, one of the protestors.
So, obviously, Amazon decided
to cash on it and prepared a yard sign with these exact same words. It soon
became one of the top-selling items on the site. A gay couple decided to move
into the neighborhood when they saw this sign outside someone’s house. This
shows that there is a huge difference between performative activism and
actually believing in the signs that you chant loudly at the protests. It made
a huge difference in their lives.
After the sign was put up, someone took a picture of it and uploaded it on social media. Soon, it went viral.
This symbol is now widely celebrated as one of the most progressive signs in any movement. Even though many variations exist now that makes it difficult to trace it back to the original sign, just know that activism is only effective when you include it in your life too. Preaching on Instagram And Facebook when the events are fresh is good but you need to keep reinstating your point until everyone around you is afraid of talking against any fundamental rights of human beings.
