With the Black Lives Matter movement inspiring action across the nation, Metal band Body Count (@bodycountofficial), fronted by Ice-T, has announced the release of their radio single “No Lives Matter” via @centurymedia. Originally released in 2017, “No Lives Matter” speaks on the importance of unity in the face of oppression. In the intro to the music video, @icet highlights the ignorance and dilution of debating the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”
“…when I say ‘Black Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter’, that’s like if I was to say ‘Gay Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter’. If I said, ‘Women’s Lives Matter’ and you say ‘All Lives Matter’. You’re diluting what I’m saying. You’re diluting the issue. The issue isn’t about everybody, it’s about black lives, at the moment.”
