"Black lives matter, but eventually, when we all bleed the same, then why not all lives matter." Actor Nishit Sangwan on Black lives matter

Considering his perspective, then he has a lot to elaborate on black lives matter. He says that it is easy to join a crowd for protest, but it's is very difficult to get the essence of why we are doing it? The reason behind it.

Talking about his views on Black Lives Matters, then he says that We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. Our network centers on those who have been marginalized within Black liberation movements.

After Floyd's death triggered demonstrations and protests in over 2,000 U.S. cities and around the world against police brutality, police racism, and lack of police accountability, in early June, the Minneapolis City Council took action to ban chokeholds and require police officers to intervene against the use of excessive force by other officers, and voted an intent to replace the police department with a "new community-based system of public safety."

The area near the location where Floyd was killed became a makeshift memorial throughout May 26, with many placards paying tribute to him and referencing the Black Lives Matter movement.

○His perspective on Black lives Matter.

Nishit said that when we all bleed the same, then why we are driving our energy in racism, which is not at all acceptable in this rapidly changing realm.

If we are talking in the context of lives matter, then I would rather say that all lives matter.

However, he talked on the context of racism, which seems somewhat the term more often followed firmly by people. People often associate racism with acts of abuse or harassment. However, it doesn’t need to involve violent or intimidating behavior. Take racial name-calling and jokes. Or consider situations when people may be excluded from groups or activities because of where they come from.

Racism can be revealed through people’s actions as well as their attitudes. It can also be reflected in systems and institutions. But sometimes it may not be revealed at all. Not all racism is overt. For example, someone may look through a list of job applicants and decide not to interview people with particular surnames.

Unconscious bias, also sometimes known as implicit or hidden bias, “is a prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another usually in a way that’s considered to be unfair. Biases may be held by an individual, group, or institution and can have negative or positive consequences".

Accordingly, Nishit comes up with his notion that it's undoubtedly the best that he can put forth. "Where all lives matter, their humanity exists". Praising his conceptions and similarly, he urges everyone not to follow bigotry it will lead to an inhuman sphere with no advancement in any state.
