In the words of Alicia Garza, a #BlackLivesMatter co-founder, who made the distinction late last year in a post on the Feminist Wire: "When we deploy 'all lives matter' as to correct an intervention specifically created to address anti-blackness, we lose the ways in which the state apparatus has built a program of genocide and repression mostly on the backs of black people."

I agree with you, all lives matter and should matter equally.
Too many people confuse what equality actually is. In some cases, I don't think equality is even the goal: I think vengeance is.
#BlackLivesMatter was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted for his crime

Black lives matter, if you don't like it do something to change the racial profiling and negative stereotypes.
