Now, I'm sure you all have the most loving intentions at heart, but here's a quick analogy to what I picture when you say "all lives matter".

You sit down with your extended family for a holiday dinner, and everyone starts passing the food around. Your favorite, the potato salad, is heading your way, but before you can scoop some for yourself, your sister next to you places the bowl in the middle of the table after getting her share.
"Hey," you comment, "I need some potato salad too."
"Shush!" Your dad rumbles from the other end of the table. "Everyone deserves some potato salad."
He glares at you, doing nothing to reprimand your sister or secure you your portion of potato salad. In the end, you are left without potato salad, and the rest of the table follows your father's lead in giving you the cold shoulder for instigating a disagreement on a holiday.

Black lives matter.
Blue lives matter.
And yes, white lives matter too.
But saying "all lives matter" is like saying "all people should be treated equally"; we end up passing it off as an ideal and silently dealing with a world where "some [people] are more equal than others". This ride is only going to collapse if we keep duct taping the outside rather than fixing the odds and ends that keep it moving.


But saying "all lives matter" is like saying "all people should be treated equally"[/b mate systematic racism was never proven and is currently not proven.


Ooh, bait. Nomnomnom...

Inequality is a thing and has been proven. In this "land of the free" where people "pursue their happiness", obviously the poor are only poor because they refuse to make an effort, right? Therefore, they are deserving of less. Less happiness, less dignity, less equity. This thought has poisoned society to the point that the poor themselves believe it (1). Before they even have a chance, it's ingrained into the minds of our children when they're deemed to be from undesirable backgrounds (2).

What makes an undesirable background? Here's a question: If I ask you to picture a slum, or a ghetto, what do you imagine? Who do you picture living there? Regardless of what you thought of after you realized what I was getting at, those human beings in the first image are our undesirables, whether they want to be or not.

EDIT: New info; even if some "big evil system of racism" isn't proven, racial bias is. Though the slightly higher percentage of fatal black shootings by officers is not significantly different from fatal white shootings, "[e]ven when officers report civilians have been compliant and no arrest was made, blacks are 21.3% more likely to endure some form of force" (3). Divided up, data shows that during Stop and Frisk situations, blacks are 18% more likely to be pushed to the wall or ground, and a whole 24% more likely to have a weapon pointed at them, and this is after correcting for gender, age, reason for the stop, time of day, area crime rate, and more.

BLM does call for the killing of whites dont be a idiot, and cops


"Ew, you watch anime? So you condone the sexualization of prepubescent girls, having them ******* and ********* with ********************* when they ************ to the **************? It must be so satisfying when they all surround the cardboard cutout of a main character, who only exists to let you live in the show vicariously, helping you forget that you're a 35 year old sage who lives in his grandmother's basement and hasn't held a steady job in his life. But even though you're a virgin, you fornicate with a character pillow every few hours right? That's a must for anime fans; I hear they go crazy if they don't pretend kiss their 'waifus' regularly."

So now we've perfectly encapsulated Black Lives Matter people and Anime people. Which group is next?

Seconded. You can oppose police brutality without wanting police to be murdered.


This. My uncle is a police officer, and my mother is black. So I support both sides, as everyone should, honestly. But overall, I'm pretty sure that more police officers are killed at the hands of black men (only saying black specifically since that is the who we are talking about), than black men are killed at the hands of police officers. Regardless, none of it is right.

I don't and won't support people who I have to fear more than some of the thugs and gangbangers where I live nor will I support a group that is committing just as much crime as the cops they are claiming injustice against and mind you, I am a Black man.

All lives have their own individual, subjective value that changes from each perspective.

None of them.. shouldn't support either.
Cops doing their own silly game...
BLM doing something childish that makes people mad or angry.
To mobs of hatred against each others....

F** them both.
Atleast some cops are doing Very Well, and being a saint... while some others are "allowed" to be aggressive or evil.

How fights are with cops, if a cop shoots (maybe by no reason) the other cops will begin to shoot (as they think only the "runner" can dangerous or armed or did something wrong)

And then we end up with dead innocent people ;_; either by shooting, ganging up on 5 vs 1....even if that 1 being a child/teenager and the rest big "strong" men..

I will not support this simplistic mentality since this conflict is planned by the right-wing extremists. The white supremacists actually carry out the sniping to kill the white police officers who oppose racism against black and gain sympathy. They get a black scapegoat, bribe the news to distributed false information, use photo-shopping, and bribe the social media administrator to hack into BLM accounts. By glorifying the successful sniping in their hacked accounts, the white supremacists gain pride for their success while creating fear toward successful African-American.
If the Black Lives Matter are glorifying the attack right after carrying it out, then they would use a disorganized mob attacks which is way more practical and way more likely to succeed; they would not expose the identity of the sniper who are supposed to conceal their identity. Many African American are in the low class where they cannot afford the time and resource for such demanding military operation especially in a time with more peaceful political alternative.
The white supremacists, on the other hand, are more likely carry out the attack since they are more desperate to disrupt the political shift toward the left. They also have the wealth, connection, political authority, and time to carry out such attack. The white-supremacist snipers would be able to hide their skin color, escape with the secret assistant from certain police officers, and use the police officers to set up a black scapegoat.
A loosely-organized guerrilla organization without military training cannot possibly carry out a successful sniper attacks with its high risk. A sniper operation need high skills, knowledge of good hiding place in advance, and knowledge of enemy's movements in advance. Even if they can gain the skill with long-term intensive training, they also need to solve logistic problems: 1) How can some civilian smuggle an illegal weapon and the large amount of ammo for training? 2) How can some civilian maintain a complex weapon with many fragile parts? 3) How can they transport a non-portable sniper in an urban area? 4) Where can they find a large area for long-term sniper training?
This racism is used as a diversion from the Capitalist elites. The Capitalists set up puppet government to ruin third world economy and create wars to promote immigration. They prefer foreign workers who accept low wage and human right abuse to escape from wars and oppression. They weaken the union power by displacing many domestic workers with foreign workers, force the union to recruit foreign workers to gain enough member, and create conflict between the workers. Advertising promote investment but foreign workers demand too little for investment.

it's deliberate ignorance, and time we stopped being sidetracked by it-people who choose to read BLM somehow as ONLY black lives matter reveal a lot about themselves. And the fact they can go straight from "all lives matter" to "Blue lives matter" shows it was the 'black' part of BLM they really had issue with and not some imagined exclusivity. It would be better for these people to get back under their stones because the second they step outside their hateful little echo chambers they're getting shredded by those of us who know better.
