kisspng-raised-fist-1968-olympics-black-power-salute-resis-fist-5b3c9e3cb5ddb4.3215205115306993247449Someone considering conversion to Judaism asked Hillel the Elder, a Jewish sage who lived in 110-10 BCE, to convince them to convert while standing on one foot.

Hillel answered:

“That which is hateful to you, do not do to others. That is the whole Torah*.  The rest is commentary.”

Black Lives Matter.

It’s simple, and anyone who tries to tell you that it’s not simple, anyone who tells you, No, All/Blue/White Lives Matter, is either knowingly or unwittingly perpetuating racism.

It’s. That. Simple.

The rest is commentary.

*The Torah, aka the Five Books of Moses, consists of the first five books of the Hebrew Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.
