    Bottom line is, if we stop the hyperbole, the truthful statements are as such:

    To me, all lives matter, regardless of skin color.
    To some cops (a very small minority), black lives do not matter.
    To some cops (a very small minority), white lives do not matter.
    To some cops (a very small minority), hispanic lives do not matter.
    To some cops (a very small minority), asian lives do not matter.
    To the vast majority of cops, all lives matter, regardless of skin color.
    To some blacks, black lives do not matter.
    To some whites, black lives do not matter.
    To some blacks, white lives do not matter.
    To some whites, white lives do not matter.
    To most blacks, black lives matter.
    To most whites, black lives matter.
    To most blacks, white lives matter.
    To most whites, white lives matter.

    Let's stop with the generalizations of an entire people group and start talking factual. Until you can do that, you, Zaac, are just spouting nonsense that does nothing to help people of any skin color.

    So Zaac, if someone were to break into your home, steal your car, etc. - do you imagine that you would call the police for assistance?

    The purpose of this thread was nonsense as its entire purpose is to deny that black lives matter.

    Everybody knows that the "Black Lives Matter" movement was started in reaction to the fact that black people were saying that even though they fully recognize that ALL LIVES MATTER, that they weren't seeing that in the senseless murdering of unarmed black men by police.

    And every time racially prejudiced individuals try to lessen what they are saying by proclaiming that all lives matter, the more the point is made for why black lives matter.

    So once again, white people need to stop trying to undervalue and marginalize Black people and what they say just because white people want to be the ones to set the narrative.

    Their narrative isn't your narrative when it comes to police brutality. So say "ALL LIVES MATTER" . No one has ever said otherwise.

    But saying it just because you think folks should be saying that "all lives matter" instead of "black lives matter" while blaming the dead people for their own murders doesn't speak to a belief that all lives matter.

    This board and the many statements about them getting what they deserve, etc speaks to why they say "Black lives matter" instead of "ALL LIVES MATTER".

    SO stop it with the forever attempts to marginalize black lives. This is in direct response to police brutality against Blacks. When the same thing starts happening to everyone else at the hands of the police just as it has with Blacks at the hands of the police, then we can talk about all lives mattering.

    You did not start this thread so...

    I am sure that righteousdude2 - and just about everyone else - would also be intersted in an answer to my question.

    But I won't be expecting you to break form by answering. :smilewinkgrin:

    Black lives will no longer be marginalized by white folks who don't give a flip. Blacks should go straight to the UN and file Human rights violations charges against the United States.

    If a lot of white people and police thought this, we wouldn't have police murdering so many unarmed black people.

    And the more that white men proclaim that all lives matter, the more the world sees that to a lot of white people, the only lives that matter are the white ones.

    Human Rights Violations.

    "Tell me who's the terrorist" that picture says.

    This is another claim without the numbers given. But if the police have killed more blacks than were killed 9-11 and that makes police "the terrorist," it's just as relevant to ask how many murders black people have committed; and if it's greater than the # killed 9-11, then blacks in general are terrorists.

    Then that means that white people, in general, would be terrorists too.:thumbsup:

    Yep; sure does. "Terrorist" can mean those who threaten and carry out violence in pursuit of their intolerant aims, or we can put that label on whoever we want with whatever excuse; including, as I read not long ago, parents who spank their children (or threaten to do so). If you want to label a group by comparing numbers to 9-11, we need to check how many whites the Apaches killed to determine if we should put up signs saying ENTERING TERRORIST COUNTRY outside Fort Apache and San Carlos.

    In the cesspool of hate, you continue to sink further downward!

    Again, I have not heard of any cops doing drive-by shootings. No cops have mugged, robbed and killed the victim in a city park or on the street corner.

    So, prey-tell, where is it that cops are terrorizing and murdering blacks?

    Your inflammatory use of the terminology, terrorist cops, is disgusting! I am surprised you are permitted to continue to spew such hatred on this forum! :tear:
