Dolly Parton to those who oppose Black Lives Matter: “Don’t be a dumba**!”

“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen. And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little White a**es are the only ones that matter? No!

There’s such a thing as innocent ignorance, and so many of us are guilty of that…

As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumba**. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”Dolly Parton speaking to Billboard magazine about Black Lives Matter and racial injustice in America.
