All lives matter
Posted 7/20/15
The news over exaggerates things,
white people get killed by black people
every day, and does anyone fuss about it?

I'm not saying it's right but the media
uses stories like Ferguson to fan the
flames.

Cuz, well, we know that already. That'd be like saying the sky is blue.

Isn't the point that some people don't know that?

It just makes too much sense to use.

They would if that was true. When black people ever hurt white people, it isn't because they are white.
Also when it does happen, it doesn't get media coverage if they are taking the investigation seriously, which clearly isn't the case for all the black victims we see on media (only until it gets recognition though, but even then, it's still not really taken seriously). This one white guy got shot by a black police officer the same month the Ferguson protests started. Nobody heard about it and it wasn't all over the news.
I'm sure it would have, if they let them, and you know, didn't take it seriously.
What they really do to fan the flames is mess up stories like Baltimore & Ferguson, by telling/showing people stuff with no context and/or post make them look bad.
Some even went so far as to make fake twitter accounts of black people supposedly bragging about how they robbed stores in Baltimore.
It's real sad that news outlets often gotta do that to dehumanize black folk to justify their deaths and make them seem like savages.

Edgy teenagers are the ones that need to be told that all lives matter.

Let's just agree on the fact that the media is a bunch of
assholes

and I guess I could see where you come from.

I saw a video of white police officers singing
a song about Michael Brown that
was talking about how happy they were
when the police officer killed him
and that his brains were everywhere

That is taking it WAY too far...

God Bless 'murica -_-"

I think Matt McGorry hit the nail on the head.

When did we white people become so sensitive about these things?

From what I've concluded from the reactions of anything promoting or acknowledgment of black people from them, it's because they feel left out I guess. Because for once, the attention is not on them at all, and excludes them completely pretty much.

It doesn't matter if you are black or white or any other color, the truth is that we are one and yes, all lives matter.

It's a case of victim envy. We want to be oppressed for some reason. But since we're the ones with power, there's no one to oppress us, so we victimize ourselves by imagining offenses against us. For as much grief as blacks get for seeing racism everywhere, whites are every bit as paranoid and insecure about race issues, if not more so.

I'm glad you see/understand this. :,)
If you ever seen me on some of the racism threads a while ago, I got a ton of people saying they have experienced racism/are oppressed. I wonder if any of them will see your post.
I would only say more so, but I won't deny that black people often are paranoid about it. Like...one of my mothers friends said she wasn't hired because she was black. When in reality, it clearly showed she wouldn't take her job seriously or probably just couldn't do it.
White people seem to feel uncomfortable when they acknowledge their race. In history class, me and my teacher whenever we sorta discuss things, and it's has to do with white supremacy and/or racism, whenever he and I say "white people", you could clearly tell how uncomfortable most the white kids seem to look whenever we say that.
So for that alone, I think they are/can be. People who make jokes about white people get called racist like all the time on the internet. :/

Comedian that puts it in a funny way. I do recommend watching his full show though it's hilarious.

It seemed to be a black lives matter rally..

one of the political democratic speakers said "Black lives matter" then he said "White lives matter" then he was cut off by the whole crowd screaming at him yelling "NO"...

Anyone else think that's kinda messed up??

I mean all lives matter equally....



By saying "Black Lives Matter," nobody is insinuating that other lives don't matter as well. It's just that the lives of blacks aren't seen as equal to the lives of whites, which is why people are reiterating that black lives actually do matter. Do you see white people being manhandled, injured, and some even killed by police officers for the smallest things? I think not.

The saying "Black Lives Matter" is like "Save the Rainforest"; Yes, all forests matter, but rainforests specifically are in danger and people need to be aware of that. Yes, all lives technically do matter, but the lives of black people aren't seen that way by many, which is why attention is being brought to that matter.

that's because white people aren't killed by black people because they're white you idiot. 99% of the time there's no racial motivation when it comes to black on black, black on white, etc. murders
