Why do only white people use the term “all lives matter”? Is it a code for “I don’t think black lives matter”?

    Uh, that's not true. If you step outside of your comfort zone and acknowledge people from white, black and anything in between who are more conservative and disagree with BLM, they will say the same. And no, it does not mean that black lives do not matter. It means that all do. And if more BLM folks were less exclusive and really did call themselves All Lives Matter, more people would be open to it as we understand when they say all lives matter, they mean that black lives matter too. But when you exclude other colors of people or when there is not outrage from them when white people or Hispanic or Asian or whatever are targeted, people will get the idea that what they say is literal. Black Lives Matter and no one else. They show not only with words, but with actions that they do not care about the rest of us.

    It certainly seems that way

    No, it is a way to say exactly that ALL LIVES  MATTER and not separate the value of life by race.

    I don't really use any such jargon. But the fact is, every human being is God's beloved child, and God is not pleased when some of His children persecute others of His children, especially for such absurd and irrelevant reasons as the shade of their skin. And "All" obviously includes people of every color.

    It's code for "they're killing us too".

    Because all lives DO matter. God didn't create black people / white etc be be above the other. We are all equal like or not regardless of what color a person is. And please note I do not post Anonymously.

    no it's code for 'i don't understand what blm really means'.

    however don't waste your time explaining it as they wouldn't give a fk even if they did.
