Why “Black” Makes Us Uncomfortable

Dear fellow white people, let’s have an honest talk about why we say “All Lives Matter.” First of all, notice that no one was saying “All Lives Matter” before people started saying “Black Lives Matter.” So “All Lives Matter” is a response to “Black Lives Matter.” Apparently, something about the statement “Black Lives Matter” makes us uncomfortable. Why is that?

Now some white people might say that singling out Black people’s lives as mattering somehow means that white lives don’t matter. Of course, that’s silly. If you went to a Breast Cancer Awareness event, you wouldn’t think that they were saying that other types of cancer don’t matter. And you’d be shocked if someone showed up with a sign saying “Colon Cancer Matters” or chanting “All Cancer Patients Matter.” So clearly, something else is prompting people to say “All Lives Matter” in response to “Black Lives Matter.” (Huffington Post)

Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter

I worry about all these community organizers who talk about working with police telling you to be submissive and compliant. What they are really doing is telling you to give up your rights and go along to get along. I wonder why they can’t see police shooting unarmed Black men. When we say ‪#‎BlacklivesMatter‬ we are talking about a race of people And when they talk BlueLivesMatter you are talking about an organized group of people who operate under the motto of to “protect and serve”. What they don’t seem to realize is that’s a job. In my opinion they should quit before killing a person arbitrarily. If you are under pressure and feel your life is in danger go do something else less stressful. Again we misunderstand They don’t mean protect and serve the people, they are protecting and serving the government and each other. How many Black people have to die for us to understand we are the subjects of their racism. A targeted people. I find it offensive that all those good cops can’t find the bad ones before they kill someone, but they can find your ass.
