Let's be clear, we said: We never said OnlyBlackLivesMatter. In truth, we know that AllLivesMatter. We've supported your lives through history. Now we need your help with for blacks lives are in danger.
Someone from Richmond posted a whisper, which reads "Saying black lives matter isnt saying other lives dont matter. Thats like coming up to someone supporting breast cancer victims and telling the "hey, victims of other cancers matter too!
Also because of the difference in how the justice system and media treat black victims of police brutality. AND the issues of racial profiling leading to increased harassment of black people, mass incarceration, and wider issues of racism.
Nobody deserves to live in fear for simply existing. NOT all law enforcement is bad. But Police continue to kill because they are not being reprimanded as murderers. Not that anybody should ever need to be reminded of this, but apparently some do,
I love that: "if you can't see why we're saying 'black lives matter' you're part of the problem." And let's be honest, a LOT of the people saying "all lives matter" sure don't act like any life BUT THEIR OWN matters.
