Conservatives Eating Up Stevie Wonder’s ‘Taken Out of Context’ Comments on Black Lives Matter

 

Even though Stevie Wonder has clarified his comments regarding the hypocrisy of saying “Black lives matter,” conservatives have continued to latch onto the statement.

“It is in your hands to stop all the killing and all the shooting wherever it might be,” Wonder says while discussing gun violence at the North Minneapolis Conference on Peace Saturday, June 17. “Because you cannot say, ‘Black Lives Matter‘ and then kill yourselves. Because you know that we’ve mattered long before it was said, but the way we show that we matter — the way that we show that all the various people of color matter — is by loving each other and doing something about it, not just talking about it.”

The BLM comment picked up steam over the past week and Wonder clarified his comments to activist DeRay Mckesson Wednesday.

Wonder has previously spoken out in support of the Black community, including last year at London’s British Summer Time Festival when he said “all life does matter… But the reason that I say Black lives matter is because we are the original people of this world. So, in essence, everybody in here, really, you got some Black in you. You’ve all got some soul in you, so stop denying your culture.”

Still, commenters on conservative-leaning websites couldn’t get enough of the singer’s recent “taken out of context” remarks.

Several praised Wonder for “speaking the truth.”

Others slammed BLM and Black people in general.
