Do not murder

Black Lives Matter

The text in the background is Hebrew and reads “lo tirtzach” (do not murder) from the ten commandments (Exodus 20:1-17), repeated. There’s an idea that the Torah/Bible is black fire (the letters) and white fire (the spaces) and the spaces say just as much as the text. I hope we’re also working towards a world where it’s universally obvious that “do not murder” includes black people, but it’s spelled out here because ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬.
