''Saying crap as all lives matter''? So you are saying some lives are more valuable than others? God, these situation bring the worst on people...
If a white person like myself says 'Black Lives Matter', I'm not suggesting that my life is less valuable.
I'm raising awareness of a particular problem that I think needs to be highlighted.
If you want to deflect and undermine the message as much as possible, you counter with 'All Lives Matter'. As if I ever claimed otherwise.
And even though it started with one scumbag with his knee on a black man's neck for 9 minutes, police brutality is an underlying issue. And it has now escalated to a whole slew of officers who need to be investigated for violent crimes. Shooting people's eyes out for just reporting the news, kicking people who are just sitting peacefully on the ground, accelerating with a car into a crowd, firing canisters at people for standing on their own porch, etc.
This is one of the reasons why this isn't over yet, in spite of the original officer now being arrested and charged with murder.Last edited by Hiku - on 01 June 2020
