In response to the outlandish comments made by televangelist Pat Robertson, we are here yet again being attacked for standing up against white supremacy. To insinuate that our movement is trying to destroy Christianity is disgraceful and outright offends our Christian siblings who are a part of our movement against racial injustice. The statements made by Pat Robertson are completely inflammatory and dangerous.

The number seven holds power. Many of us have heard the adage that the cells of our body are renewed and replaced every seven years. The reality is a little more complex. Some of our cells are replaced rapidly, others emerge in a crisis only to disappear, while others, like those that form our DNA, endure for our lifetime. But the average age of our cells is seven. As Black Lives Matter celebrates its seventh anniversary, I’m energized by the significance the natural world has vested in the number seven.

We have experienced historic solidarity of the Black Lives Matter Movement from national sports teams and players, from the Milwaukee Bucks — the first NBA team to strike during Game 5 to protest the shooting of Jacob Blake in the Buck’s home state of Wisconsin — to Members of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx, MLB’s Milwaukee Brewers, and tennis star Naomi Osaka.
