Funny because Black Lives Matter is only concerned with supposed white racism and doesn't care about black lives. So in your example the fire department would only put out the fire if a white person set in on fire but if another black person did they would not care and let it burn down.It's like you're house being on fire and fireman turning up and then saying "Wait a minute !! All houses matter. What about that house across the street ?"For once and for all, I wish someone would explain to me how "All lives matter" is a racist statement.
I said that last night in a Facebook discussion and was immediately attacked for being a racist. When I asked for an explanation, I had some white girl tell me that, since I'm not black, I couldn't possibly understand. When I pointed out that she, too, was white, she shut her hole.
To me "All lives matter" is about as inclusive as you can get. Anything else breeds divisiveness. Anything else says that some lives don't matter.
So, anyone wanna' help me out on this?
You see there are two types of advice that people give.
The difference is all in the context.
- Advice you give to try and help someone with their problems.
- Advice you give to help yourself feel better about not knowing how to help them with their problems.
If you tell someone to brush and floss their teeth every day, that's good advice, but if you're talking to someone who just lost their teeth, because they were in a car accident, within that context, your advice is terrible, and that's what's wrong with "All Lives Matter"
All lives matter is correct in the abstract, but useless in context.
Thanks for the clarification. Go back to being a victim now.
