Of course all lives matter. If you disagree you are just a ignorant person that is going to burn in hell. If you are that mentally unstable and can not think clearly to make a simple decision such as this one should just kill yourself now and save people the time of arguing with you.

Starting with the specific name of"Black" Lives Matter. Extremely bias for African-Americans and rarely recognize other minorities that have been shot indiscriminately by law enforcement. Nothing more than a radical movement to use the"eye-for-an-eye" argument to retaliate against the police just because they dared shoot a black man even if that black man was guilty.

Everyone's rights deserve to be protected, even in his or her's worst times. Both law enforcement and the courts are responsible for giving equitable treatment to everyone, regardless of his or her identity -- which, in this movement, focuses on black Americans.

Yes, black lives matter. However so do the white, Mexican, Asian, and everyone else's lives! The black lives matter movement completely forgets every white person killed because of racism. If you ask me, that's racist. Not to mention that many blacks killed by cops are killed because the cop was defending themselves.

I get what Black Lives Matter is for, but it sounds like screw every other race only Blacks are important. Plus 2 of the 3 Black Love Matter starts don't live in this country, because they are wanted fugitive for cop killing and the fact they call cop killers heros. We also need to address that yes some cops are rasict, but by yelling and screaming about things with no facts like CNN for instance doesn't help anything and when someone brings facts they get called a rasict or bigot if they don't fit the narrative. It also doesn't help when apparently now only whites can be rasict. Plus the media only reports white on black crimes for tv rating and much more could be sayed, but I believe I've made my point.

We cannot look the other way as if we don't see how blacks are treated in this country. That being said yes all lives matter and we must make sure cops are being held accountable for killing anyone. Just because they are focusing on the black issues at hand does not mean they don't understand all lives matter. We must ask ourselves before black lives matter movement came along was there anyone out there saying all lives matter with tshirts and signs. No. Both sides need to find a way to work together for the better but both movements are well needed.

Same can be said for the whites that were killed also. Both issues need to be addressed and having black lives matter movement although only addressing one race is at least addressing the issue of cop brutality. All lives do matter and we need to stress that movement also but in no way is black lives matter hurting anything.

They eye for an eye seems a little harsh. They have a legitimate gripe. Whether they address the other races or not black are being shot and some for no reason. Doing something wrong does not give the cops the authority to kill you. None of those people I have seen have been shooting or holding a weapon at the cops. So there is no justification for the deaths. They are addressing those issues and simply because they are not stressing other races being gunned down does not change that what they are complaining about is happening. If that makes sense.
