All lives matter is a term used by people who are not sympathetic to the struggles of blacks within society. Here’s why it’s wrong to use that phrase:
“For my all lives matter folks: when the Boston marathon was bombed everybody’s profile picture went ‘Boston Strong’ nobody said ‘all cities are strong’!
When the Las Vegas shooting happened, people changed their profiles to ‘stand with Vegas’, nobody said “well what about the people in my city”?!
Have you ever seen someone counter a ‘breast cancer’ post with ‘what about colon cancer’?
But for some reason, if someone says ‘black lives matter’ it turns into an all inclusive ‘all lives matter.’ It’s not an either/or proclamation. When there is a crisis we have always rallied around that particular group. It doesn’t discredit or diminish any other group it just brings awareness and support to the group that needs attention.”
