    One of the most common responses to "Black Lives Matter" is "all lives matter." But that response misses the point, as this great cartoon from Kris Straub at Chainsawsuit demonstrates ...



    Next time someone tells you "all lives matter," show them this cartoon



    ... Straub's cartoon echoes this point: If a house is burning down, you're obviously going to focus on putting out the fire instead of watering a house that's just fine. In this analogy, black lives are the burning house, and everyone else is living much more comfortably in the house that isn't burning down. Clearly, one is a bigger problem ...

    Tim Scott defends use of 'all lives matter'

    [​IMG]

    Washington (CNN)South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott said it is not his problem that Black Lives Matter activists find the phrase "all lives matter" offensive.

    "If it causes offense that I say that 'all lives matter' -- black lives, white lives, police officers, jurists, all of us, even politicians, all of our lives matter -- if that is somehow offensive to someone, that's their issue, not mine," he told CNN's Brianna Keilar on "The Situation Room" on Thursday ...

    "The unfortunate truth is that the hashtag #AllLivesMatter is a reaffirmation of white supremacy.

    Let me be clear here. Yes, all language is contextual, and at face value, this particular hashtag, #AllLivesMatter, seems to be an affirmation of humanity. However, let us not be fooled into reading the word “all” as in “everyone.” We are reminded that the Founding Fathers used the same language of humanity. We do, indeed, “hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” In the language of U.S. politics, “all” has never meant everyone. #SomeLivesMatter."

    I'm willing to bet that many of the whites that yell "All Lives Matter" also was on the side of the cops that killed Brown, Gardner, and may have even sent money in to Zimmerman.

    Peace!

    Without a doubt bro. Enki, its a racist element of society and its failure to understand that of all the lives, only Black lives are burning.

    When they spout about saving the Rain Forrest, Whale, etc. Did anybody say that all vegetation matter? or that all fish life matter? No, because we are smart enough to know that protesting to save any of these things is not saying that the rest don't matter.

    Or maybe that makes too much sense:rolleyes:

    Peace!

    Why "Black Lives Matter" Because All Lives Don't Matter in America


    ... So "Black lives matter" is not a cliché, precisely because the truth it expresses is far from a given, precariously established, if at all. Its anti-truth is evidenced in the constitutively fraught everyday of Black lives: walking while black, driving while black, speaking "as" black, speaking b(l)ack, shopping while black, being at home while black, being black at school, black at the pool, black in the hands of police, black in prison. Just being black ...

    Correct Mr. President.



    FBI director’s ‘all lives matter’ message clashes with Obama


    ... And where Comey used the phrase “all lives matter” three times in his speech, President Obama used his closing remarks to explain the meaning of the phrase “black lives matter” and why saying “all lives matter” misses the point.


    “I think the reason that the organizes used the phrase ‘black lives matter’ was not because they said they were suggesting nobody else’s lives matter; rather, what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that is happening in the African American community that’s not happening in other communities. And that is a legitimate issue that we’ve got to address,” Obama said ...
