All the pointless analogies are just that. Saying "All Lives Matter" is not like saying anything else. It is simply saying "this is not a race issue". Black Lives Matter, at its core, asserts that police shootings are a race issue at large, but the statistics just don't support those claims. Saying "All Lives Matter" is saying "Lets find real solutions to real problems instead of twisting the problems to spin a narrative and proposing solutions that don't actually address the core of the issue".

Okay!

Thanks for letting us know!

But the real question is what's the consensus from the RNC on puppet shows. That's what I want to know. Sock or marionette. I'd imagine heavy marionettes would be cumbersome to control. "Puppet size matters!"

What's that? No, I'm not crazy. Have you ever thought that maybe you're crazy? Maybe the whole country is crazy. You've all got a fever and the only cure... is more puppet shows.

And yes, this is relevant! It's directly analogous! "All lives" are like "puppet size" - someone said they matter... well someone probably said it, anyway.. Can't get more relevant than that! Especially in a thread involving politics!

What's wrong with saying all lives matter? I don't see a problem.

"Black lives matter" as a movement is named so in the same way as "feminism" is named the way it is. Focus on what's broken, not just everything. The movements are named after those without power, instead of just the status quo and ignoring what needs to be fixed.

Daily reminder that Black Lives Matter dont give a honest fuck about black people. The only time a black life has any value to them is when its taken by a non black person.

I am confused by what both of you are saying


The whole point of "Black Lives Matter" IS "All Lives Matter" the reason they say "Black" instead of "All" is because they feel their lives are worth less than others in the eyes of law enforcement, and that's why so many are dying to police.

The normal republican response of "All Lives Matter" in response to Black Lives Matter is because they think the group BLM is saying black lives matter more than others.

My original response automatically assumes that the "All Lives Matter" chant at the RNC is aimed in response to the BLM movement, but closeded pointed out that since it was at a RNC rally that had nothing to do with BLM, they could have just been innocently chanting "All Lives Matter".

Personally I think most of this confusing shit can be avoided if the BLM movement just changed their slogan a little to "Black Lives Matter Too".



That's not what I meant. Them chanting "all lives matter" is obviously directed at BLM; I was just picking at your analogy.



*sigh* they really don't get it, that's like chanting "All tree's matter" at a save the rain forest rally.


They weren't chanting "All tree's matter" at a save the rain forest rally, they were chanting "all trees matter" at the RNC in response to the save the rain forest and kill the pigs rally.

If you're going to make oddly arbitrary analogies, at least make them accurate.

He's right even if it was an attack on black lives matter.

The problem here is that blm doesn't even know what they stand for, they are totally racist and have been lead to believe that a large amount of black people are being oppressed by police. This actually isn't true.

The RNC is actually, contrary to most belief, is much more likely to benefit the black community than blm or democrats. BLM deserves to be attacked for the blaspheme they spout. BLM isn't helping black people they are another group of people trying to gain attention and play to this hipster "down for the cause" bs and none of their supporters are in the least bit intelligent.

Most of the posts on this thread are ignant as hell.

I saw one blm supporter say, "if there's a house fire do the fire department spray all the houses? No they spray the house on fire, we (black people) are on fire." That would actually be a good argument... if it were true... we are not victims.

Yes we know "black lives matter too" and so do the police I mean they showed up when black people called the police to help them from other black people. Black lives matter says racism is crazy, while most of the members of their group are also racists that don't know black people can be racist.

Regardless the chant is not by any means malicious to humanitarianism, it is definitely in response to blm in my opinion though but rightfully so.

No, seriously. Go and make a sock puppet and then talk to the hand. Kids love it. I should know - I was once a kid.

A duo of tall space- alien conquerors once said "Everyone loves puppets". I'm happy you enjoyed my post, but I was just speaking the obvious. I was promoting puppets... but it turned out I was the puppets' puppet all along. And I'm okay with that!

Finally, a meaningful discussion! Much obliged, comrade!
