    The truth is ALL LIVES COUNT! There is not one life lost in this life that isn't priceless.

    I have known men and women of ALL color who have died and for their loved ones and friends like me, they are gone and will forever be missed! And I happen to believe that ALL HUMANS value ALL lives, regardless of color, regardless of how they died. And if they died at the hands of violence it is even that much more senseless.

    That is my view on this idea that Black lives count. What is your view?

    You try so hard. SMH. Unless black lives aren't part of all lives, why would you disagree?

    Oh wait. Perhaps because it goes with the narrative that the right keeps trying to paint.

    As usual, this is nothing more than white privileged ears not listening as the point of the slogan isn't to discount any other life.

    You know when you create titles like that you bring on the hard time people give you.

    Probably posted it to get a rise out of me. Just more cluttered prose from the "author".

    Could be that RD was just trying to get people to think.

    There is a way to do it without a title that appears racist.

    To think what? That he doesn't have a clue or that he just likes the attention?

    He's not so out there that he didn't know that Blacks aren't saying that other lives don't matter.

    Nothing but more of the right's narrative of thinking they get to change the story. "All lives matter" seems to be the rights response to "Black lives matter" reinforcing again that a certain level of white privilege again prevents certain people from listening and trying to understand what they are saying.

    Unfortunately for you, you're complicit in making him think that's what people want to see and hear.

    RD2, you need to take responsibility for that awful heading. Do you have the capacity to feel shame?

    Something that's difficult to do with many. I think the protesters need to get off the hype of two men who committed crimes ... and if they want to do something for black men dying by way of violence, is to march their butts to the ghettos and start raising federal interest in doing something about gang killings, etc.

    I believe the protester's have a just cause .... just the wrong target. Reset and re-aim and take your marches and die ins to your ghettos. Drugs and gang killings are what takes the largest bite out of black men of all ages.

    For years I have advocated for groups to do this, to no avail. Many community leaders tell me the participants of this kind of rally are afraid of being targeted by gangs .

    The Rev has nothing to do with what I write, any more than what and whomever influences you. I think protesters need to go to the source and work to clean up ghetto violence as well as police violence, although violence by cops is marginal when compared to black on black killings. People need to take back their communities, which I believe will bring an end to cop shooting incidents.

    Fear not RD2 for they have heard your pleas and have actually been doing what you suggest.
