Just when I was about to close my laptop for some good sleep, I came across a video in which you claimed that Beyoncé broadened the gap between white and black even more. I sensed that you felt that Super Bowl conveyed that Black lives matter more. I would like to shed some light on things that I feel you are overlooking.
Beyoncé is not the one who is expanding the gap between black and white. Police brutality and certain politicians are a few examples of the main causes of the expanding gap between the two groups.
Firstly, I would like to clarify that the Black Panthers did not target peaceful individuals. This group utilized violence against violence. This being said, if there would be peaceful demonstrations they would not violate human rights. Indeed, for the white population they might come across as aggressive, especially when some violent decisions left their marks. However, I would like to emphasize that you would probably feel the need to do the same after years full of racism, discrimination and sorrow. I feel that you based your research about this group on solely one perspective. If you would take into consideration the feelings from both groups I am almost certain that you would have a more neutral view on this matter.
Secondly, Beyoncé is not the one who is expanding the gap between black and white. Police brutality and certain politicians are a few examples of the main causes of the expanding gap between the two groups. Thus, I do believe that your statement: ‘You, just like president Obama and many others cannot let America heal’ is not making sense. I would like you to get your facts straight, look more often to the news and rethink your statement once more.
I feel that you did not understand the music video of Beyoncé; probably you did not realize that she launched this video, because of Black History month. You probably did not realize that the video had been recorded in New Orleans, because of its contribution to the emancipation of Black Americans. Probably, you do not know the meaning of the little boy dancing in front of the police. I feel that you have overlooked many meaningful aspects within this video.
Besides, what is the added value of mentioning that Jay-Z was a drugs dealer and that Beyoncé should be worried about that? You said it yourself: “He wás a drugs dealer”. So there is no reason for her to be worried.

Moreover, if you would have some marketing knowledge you would have known that if you want your message to reach a broad group of people, you have to use tools that have wide exposure. That being said, it was a good move of Beyoncé to convey her message during Super bowl. Again, did you forget that it is Black history month? Do you really mind if the interesting, but mostly painful history of black people is remembered during a month of the year?
Not only did you offend a large group of individuals. Your arguments raised the impression on social media that your statements are based on poor research. Perhaps you can rethink your statements and gain more knowledge on this matter.
