Just another way to disenfranchise black people. First of all, Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter aren’t mutually exclusive. How dumb you sound saying this can be explained in the following example:
Polar bears are going extinct, poacher’s are shooting them for sport. Polar bear advocates see this and campaign for poachers to stop, before the majority of the species disappears.
Polar bear lives matter!
Simple minded Karen see’s this, then starts “pontificating.” Well there are other animals on the planet: cats, dogs, zebras, lions, tigers…Why are they only talking about polar bears!
All animals matter!
Despite the fact that poachers aren’t shooting ANY of the animals Karen named for sport. Those animals aren’t on the extinction list; their population is thriving, unharmed and unbothered about dying when out and about. Polar bears on the other hand, can be sleeping, or playing with their children, at home, or going to get food…Still they’re killed for fun, or hate.
Saying polar bears lives matter when they are dying, doesn’t mean all animals don’t matter. Not only are you advocating nothing, because the animals you’re including are fine, but you’re an accomplice to murder. Diverting attention from the polar bear, that actually needs help, for animals that aren’t being mistreated, does nothing to stop the polar from being terrorized. It only interrupts the changes that can be made to prevent the polar bear from going extinct, aiding the poachers, making you complicit.
Funny, every time someone say’s all lives matter I reply with:
-So why did you take this land from the Native Americans?
-Why did you call all hispanics Mexican and put them in cages?
-Why did you use the Chinese to build railroads, then kick them out amongst other things, with the Chinese Exclusion Act?
-Why did you put the Japanese in internment camps?
-Why did you make black people slaves?
-Why did you label middle eastern people terrorist?
And not a single person responds, because people who say ALM are racist. Knowingly or unknowingly, “all lives matter” until it threatens white supremacy and domination, obtained through violence. Can you think of other cruel behavior to add to the list? Artist: Simone Agoussoye
