Dolly Parton: 'Of Course Black Lives Matter'

Does country music legend Dolly Parton support the Black Lives Matter movement?

Her answer is a no-brainer.

โ€œI understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,โ€ the 74-year-old star recently told Billboard, sharing her support for the ongoing movement but admitting that she hasnโ€™t attended any protests.

โ€œAnd of course Black lives matter.

Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter?

No!โ€ Parton's comments arrive on the heels of country musicโ€™s own reckoning with systemic racism and racist stereotypes following the protests sparked by the unjust deaths of Black Americans including George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
