· Yes, of course, all lives matter. But responding to the cry of “black lives matter” with “all lives matter” is exactly why nothing ever gets accomplished. The Black Lives Matter movement doesn’t mean ONLY black lives matter. It’s more of a reminder that black lives matter, TOO. Don’t worry, your life is still important. Just remember that black lives are also important. Far too many throughout history, and even today, haven’t necessarily felt that way.
