I’m sure the title of this post will upset a number of individuals. If you’re one of them, take a few deep breaths, open your mind, and read this post completely, with an open heart.
“All Lives Matter” as a response to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is misguided at best, and downright offensive at worst. I’m not going to give you a history lesson about the BLM movement, and how and why it developed. If you care enough to have an opinion about the BLM movement, you should care enough to educate yourself about the facts behind the movement and what it truly represents. It does not in any way imply that ONLY black lives matter; the message is that black lives matter, TOO.
