All lives matter all the time. Why was George Floyd any more important than any other black or white or any other color life that has been taken? Where are all the protests for the nonstop killing that happens in Chicago? Why hasn't one black person ever said that black lives matter when a 'black life' takes another black life? A black life must only matter when it is taken by a white life. The hypocrisy is fucking mind-blowing.
Black lives matter when it is killed by gangs. People are outraged all the time in the community. George Floyd life is no different than any other black life but black lives are being killed at the hands of police and there is no justice. Not only that but there is racism as well that needs to end
When it is killed by gangs? You mean they don't matter all the time? They are being killed in all sorts of situations, just like any other race. My point is, why does it only matter when it is a cop or a white person killing a black person? Nobody says jack shit when it is a black person killing another black person. I agree that there is racism that needs to end, but it is not only white people that are racist. Most black people are taught to be racist as children, having a predisposed hatred for whitey because someone they never met was a slave, owned by someone none of us have met. I don't think any black person in this country that is alive today was ever a slave, and no white person alive in this country has ever owned one. That time has long been over. It's time for you all to get over yourselves and stop trying to make it about being wronged only when it suits the narrative.
I'm glad you see that
Say black cops were killing white guys more frequently and someone's been recorded doing it and now there are protests. Would blacks be with or against the whites
Seeing as BLM tend to blame cops on general regardless of race they would probably side with the white people, but I don't see hour example happening, so we will never truly know.
I'd really rather the answer ha e to do with America though
In America they'd say that it doesn't matter because white people are the majority and that the country is led by white people, and that's whites are therefore the privileged group. So the answer would be "no".In South Africa however the country is run by black people, black people are the majority, and the white minority really are targeted and discriminated against. Unable to get jobs because they're white, white farmers having their land grabbed, the government singing about killing them off, whole families being slaughtered. Much worse than American blacks in fact. There are no white lives matter marches there by the black. Liberals here would also say that it doesn't matter there either, in fact they prefer to call that a conspiracy theory and pretend that it isn't happening. Or worse, they say that it's justified because of the past.Don't be naive enough to think that America is somehow different. If things continue you'll see the same outcome.
Ya thats kinda my feeling on it too.
Have you seen the pictures where white people kneel in front of a black person to "show respect". If I was a black person I'd not allow any white person to kneel before me because it would be racism to blame innocent white people for the crimes some white people might have done in the past. Thus accepting the kneel from an innocent white person is racism from the black person. They should decline the kneel.
Chill and answer the question.Would blacks have our backs or no (no rioting included)
I am shocked at this question.Yes, many of them do care.I will leave it at that.Young lady, you need to look in the mirror and ask yourself what kind of person you want to be. I suspect your sense of empathy needs to be developed more.
Lol "shocked", come on, grow up, its a question, i never even said my own opinion or view. But thanks for answering , I think
I have to admit.Maybe I have been too hard on you and you deserve a much better answer than the ones I've given here. I guess my frustration has just reached a boiling point... and part of that frustration is that, at my age, human nature is not getting better nearly at the speed that it needs to given the speed of technological improvement... It's sort of an arms race between the technology of sharing and information improving people's education and experiences which eradicates ignorance and self-centered bigotry versus the technology of sharing disinformation and hate facilitation which thwarts the improvement in humanity. It's very heartbreaking seeing what is happening and that it really won't get better for centuries and, perhaps can get much worse because the technology that a single hate-filled person can employ to kill hundreds or thousands is already here and will become easier to obtain. We won't need countries with nuclear weapons to kill each each other; we will have pissed-off neighbors the world over doing it.And it all starts when we are egocentric narcissists instead of trying to be empathetic and "walk in someone else's shoes". Confrontation breeds confrontation and that results in only one of two things:1. Mutual annihilation or2. Someone stops and listens and de-escalation happens.I owe you a better answer.I need to calm down and write you one later.Good luck, young lady.
Ur acting like black people treat white people like animals. U realise all the racial protest started when white people tried to opress black people back when jim crow was a thing. The ideas of racism hasn't gone away so i dont understand what your getting at
I didn't act like anything actually. It was only a question and you assumed my entire view on life after that.Do you have an answer to the question though?
Just say there was. Would they have our backs?
If everything was reversed and white slaves had been dragged from Africa 500 years ago. Then yes wlm seems possible.
I see but I want the answer to relate more to now. But thanks
Oh I know what you want, I’m just trying to give you a more complete answer. People who say all lives matter includes black lives matter come off as insensitive because it’s like saying slavery never happened. It did so let’s work together to improve our society.
Why not?Do u have an answer?
I’m not Black so I don’t know and anyway that wouldn’t happen to White people so it’s insulting to ask. It’s White people who have looted countries and enslaved people for centuries. The queen’s most precious diamond the kohinoor was stolen from India and what did she then do she caused a split of our country into two and then mass rapes and killings happened and then eventually what was a united India split into three countries.
Thanks for answering
I take that as a no, they wouldn't
There wouldn’t be anything to protest about, white people do not experience oppression because of the color of their skin. So a “white lives matter” protest wouldn’t make sense, it just takes away from the groups of people who are actually suffer discrimination by implying white people are just as oppressed, which we all know isn’t true. So no, nobody with a brain is gonna go out and support white lives matter protests.
The question is, if you could ever understand it enough to answer is, do black people care about white people? Would they have our backs if we had a protest (and rioting isn't supporting us)
Yes black people care about white peopleBut no, they would not have your backs during a white lives protest. Nobody would except for other ignorant white people. Supporting that protest would suggest that you don’t care about the oppression of black people
Ok thanks for finally answering. Im going to have to report the post qere you said bitch though, its not allowed to called names like that on this app.
Boohoo, cry about it
I'm not. Im just giving u a heads up on the rules. 😊
