Looks Like T-Boz (of TLC) Has Some Criticism For The 'Black Lives Matter' Movement

The two ladies left from the original TLC trio, Chili and T-Boz, have historically had some seriously “eh”-worthy sentiments on social politics. And these somewhat shaky thoughts seem to extend to the Black Lives Matter movement.

After the horrific shock of hip-hop icon Prodigy’s death and the cause of his fatality was revealed, T-Boz apparently felt the need to shake a finger at the movement for what she feels is a “cold shoulder” to other issues that are currently impacting the Black community. 

After sending her condolences to Prodigy’s family on Twitter—she posted that she was saddened to hear about his death and said that she was praying for his family—she decided to raise awareness for the disease that reportedly claimed the industry icon’s life: sickle-cell anemia. 

Just a day after World Sickle Cell Awareness Day (which she also mentioned on Twitter, writing “Meant 2 Post This Earlier #WORLDSICKLECELLDAY We Have To Be Our Own and BEST ADVOCATE #RaiseAwareness #WarriorsWeFightDaily”), she posted a series of tweets on the matter.

Among other groups, like the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, she believes should be collaborating with her to stand at the forefront of making this disease a thing of the past, she feels that BLM has a big stake in this issue as well.

“I hate it takes the death of a celebrity to bring even more notice to something I talk about almost in every interview for 25 years,” she explained. “#BLM THIS disease is PREDOMINATELY an African-American disease so black lives have mattered over more than just one topic or issue.”
As a socially-charged movement that advocates against systemic racism, the health care realm included, Black Lives Matter has long stood on the grounds of providing social, financial, political and racial equity and justice for all members of the Black community.

“We need to support one another over all compassion for people as human beings, not objects and lab rats, but help to find a cure,” she continued. “SAVE OURSELVES.”
