I really am not trying to offend anyone.

I refuse to elevate one race over all the others.

Everyone agrees Black Lives Matter.

What about the rest of us ?

Do we not matter ?

Just because you don’t support one race over another, you’re racist ?

What ? Listen to yourselves, the term Black Lives Matter, is in itself racist.

I agree Black folks have been through hell in this Country.

But, to try to elevate one race over another is how we got here.

All lives matter...To say otherwise feels wrong to me.

For the Reeeeee

All lives matter or non at all.

We can see the results of making everything about the color of ones skin by our Marxist colleges. Want to get rid of racism, stop talking about it. "said by some famous actor"

Nobody with two brain cells to rub together does... it is by definition a racist movement.

On top of that if you look at the mentality of the movement...

I agree when you point out that different tribes in Africa who were working withe the slavers, they don't want to hear that cause it does not fit their paradyine or that it was the black Islamist who did the same thing, they don't want to hear that it was not white Christians although that did happen.

Well i think all lives matter,

In the sense that we sure have made this planet a sucky place to be for all living things.

Hail Satan.

You know, I didn't get it at first. I thought that all lives matter also, and they do. Then I thought about if I have ever been scared to run to the gas station and grab a drink on the weekend. No. Not that I can remember anway. What I have come to understand is that it's not that other lives don't matter, I believe it's more of black lives matter in the case that the general fear they feel is something that most other people don't, thereby making it more difficult to grasp the concept. Or that is my understanding of it thus far.

In reality everyone is virtue signaling.

No lives matter, at least not to all the ppl claiming they do so publicly.

My life never mattered to anyone. I'm not disillusioned here, just being real.

I don't believe anyone when they try telling me this. It's all for show.

America is really big on hypocritically talking a big game but when the balls on the field they drop it Everytime.

Plastic society is FAKE!

You are certainly entitled to your own thoughts and thinking, but the perspective that I have is that Black people in America have more of a raw deal than others, because of the systemic racism that exists widely in America. Personally, I don't think Black Lives Matter are seeking to elevate black people over any other ethnic backgrounds, they are simply wanting a genuine equality of opportunity to live their lives as other ethnic backgrounds do.

Unfortunately, and this is the tragedy of the situation, in order for black people in America to gain equality of opportunity, they need to be elevated to it, but not at the expense of others, and that means other ethnic backgrounds (especially of white ethnicity) have to acknowledge this and help them to achieve it. Of course, the looters and the rioters are not helping the case.

While we're at it, neither is Trump, trying to put himself across as a strong president, by giving all the wrong signals, and ammunition to his enemies, of which there are considerable. If he is not careful, he might end up with his own Kent State type of killings on his orders.

Some of you guys get so easily offended. There is nothing in the statement black lives matter that suggest other lives don't matter. Like if I say my opinion matters I am not saying that yours does not. So again saying black lives matterin no way means or suggests that other lives do not matter. Literally all it is saying is that black lives matter. Police often act like black lives do not matter while others do.

Of course you matter!! Everyone matters but some people matter more than others.

We live in a real life Animal Farm. George Orwell was a prophet.

Honestly, the best definition I have run across.

It’s not that I’m insensitive to their plight.

If their position is nobody should live in fear, we all would agree.

If they would articulate that position we would all agree.

But it seems their moniker is more associated the rioters.

The group doesn’t seem to be about love and mutual respect.

I may be wrong. I hope I am...
