Black Lives Matter went international following the death of George Floyd last May, kicking off protests against police brutality across the world. Now the organization is up for a Nobel peace prize! Petter Eide, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, announced the nomination saying, “They have had a tremendous achievement in raising global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.” It bothers me that as a nation Amercia demonized BLM, but it is most assuring that the world recognizes the impact of such a powerful and inspirational movement for people of color.

The pol, Petter Eide, a member of Norway’s Parliament, brushed aside questions of the movement’s occasions of violence on Friday.
