We hear you. We see you. We stand with you.

We’d like to make one thing very clear: If you are a reader of this blog who responds to “Black Lives Matter” with “All Lives Matter,” we urge you to stop, listen, educate yourself and decide for yourself why that is scabrous. Otherwise, Beauty Brite is not the place for you.
