Nope, I just want to stop them from dismissing pleas by saying "all lives matter."
Well ask them how can all lives matter if Dylan Roof and those like him can go around lynching people of color, don't those lives matter? If they can't come up with a answer that supports their position of all lives matter then it makes their argument void.
So yes or no?
They shouldn't change what they are currently doing. I just feel that changing the name would be beneficial.
Why? First of all the thing about marketing is that you dont change the message. Secondly they will take that as a victory and undermine your movement and thirdly they would just find an equally undermining statement against whatever you switch your name to.
So, can you tell me the what the best remedy in your opinion is?
"Black lives matter" is a slogan that insinuates that black lives need to be saved and protected so I don't think the message changes with the name.
Well first of all black lives matter is about as direct and uncontroversial as you can get it, attacking the message it conveys is already a sign that they are completely shameless so trying to win them over by diplomatic means is a waste of time.They do not have an argument and they do not have a moral ground to stand on. They are just there to use whatever dirty means to undermine you at which point the solution is simply to refuse to sink to their level and actually push through since you already have the winning argument.
I hope many people read my idea.
You want people to see your an idiot? Well at least your anon so no one can really know the idiot who said this
The reason that the organizers used the phrase Black Lives Matter was not because they were suggesting that no one else's lives matter... rather what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that is happening in the African-American community that's not happening in other communities. If you think that all lives should be saved and protected then you should pay special attention to the black community. Responding by saying "save all lives" without giving special attention to people of color is a complete non sequitor.
Not really i don't see race anyway... i just see that as human rights been messed with. why would i concentrate on there color? White guy was killed by a cop brutally, black guy brutally killed by a cop no difference so why would i take out the "Black" from this sentence rather than the white when both were killed?
I think it's because blacks are being targeted because of their race.
again that's not really argument other races are targeted too. Even whites you have heard that there such thing as black extremists who kill whites right? In the end it is just killing and stepping on rights no matter the reason why it is all wrong and should be all equal treat wrong and should all be equal treat under a name that don't "Target" One race and pick that as the name
However, that would really make no sense. If i see my house on fire and tell the neighbors to save my house, it would be irrational of them to dismiss my plea by saying that they should save/protect all houses. The same goes for racial equality. Mutatis Mutandis.
It makes perfect sense. You're literally just changing the noun from one thing to another thing that's in the same category. So going to your example it would be like you telling your neighbors that they should save your house and oultjer houses burning.
I don't think you understand my analogy. Blacks are facing certain specific problems right now that no other community is facing. If you think that all lives should be saved and protected , you should save and protect the blacks. Replying by saying "save all lives" is a complete non sequitor.
Well that's a matter of political opinion. I couldn't care less about that.
They want to save all lives? That's brilliant. So why not save the black ones?
Do we look like Superman? Step one is to save your own ass. If you happen to be black then its #BlackLivesMatter... its not that hard for you to get out there and say the same about whatever you are. Just dont be surprised at the backlash that comes with freedom of speech
