Anyone that keeps spewing this nonsense is a racist or willfully ignorant. Please stop by chanting this moronic phrase. The irony is that the people who are mainly chanting all lives matter do not actually believe that!

Saying all lives matter is a direct insult to African Americans and ignores their struggle and plight. I'd suggest you stop please. It is extremely offensive.

Thank you.

I guess one can say that not all lives matter. But that is the problem with the black lives matter chant. It implies that others don’t. And the all lives chant is the direct result of that racist battle cry. Of course that makes enemies.

Okay ... All lives don't matter. Better?

How's this for a phrase I just heard again which I thought had been retired as too moronic ... Blacks can't be racist because they don't have power.

I was going to assume this post was a piece of sarcasm...until I checked some of your prior posts.

Yes, Black Lives Matter; but so do White Lives, Asian Lives, Hispanic Lives, Native American Lives...shall I go on?

It is NOT "racist" to state All Lives Matter. On the other hand it IS patently racist to opine that ONLY Black Lives Matter.

You're welcome.

Really? Why do you even care if All Lives Matter is offensive (even though it isn't)? You've said some of the most offensive stuff on here, so you've got absolutely no right to complain about somone saying something "offensive".

I don't see how expressing concern for everyone, all inclusive, is racist. Within the set of all people, all blacks are included in this concern.

What a moronic statement.Saying all lives matter is not racist. If anything is racist it is saying black lives matter which suggests other lives don't matter. Which is extremely offensive.

Re: FYI "All lives matter" is a racist statement


Damn straight. Who comes up with these little sayings anyway? People sure get worked up over the damnedest things. It's almost like they want something to get worked up over. It might be that. Otherwise they'd be doing something useful, like trying to stop violence in some places where it seems to frequently happen. Nah, as usual I'm probably wrong.
