I’m sorry you had to get a reply like the above. Even though I disagree with you, that replyer is a moron (or probably drunk posting). @Jasmine1 way to have zero arguments and an abundance of insults, most likely in response to some simple trolling, and just insult somebody with the most stupid stuff that pops into your head.

This question I find to be almost a trick question when i ponder on it. Not meaning you specifically on here, but just in general. I guess as a start I will say that just as a basic view, to me, all lives do matter. There is literally no reason any human life is above or below any other. But when I think about it, black lives matter is in fact saying all lives matter but as a reminder. Because if all lives matter, then why does a minority group have to remind others that their life matters. A message that spawned from the feeling that they are not viewed or treated as important life like all other lives. That there are people who so easily without much if any harm or harassment towards them find it acceptable to take their life with such casual ease like squashing an ant. Individuals who unfortunately do see black people as lesser, unimportant. The specific situations are where it gets iffy for me. I take each one of these stories about cops killing black people individually. I make my judgment about it based on how it went down. I hate that certain people who happen to be in a position of power , wielding deadly weapons can be racist and violent, messed up personally, and act wildly and take a life thus causing turmoil in the country. Sad fact is there are lots of racist. Not all are in a position to act upon it in such a hateful way and even get by with it most the time. One persons personality flaw divides the nation. And I also know that protesters who destroy cities and hurt people and loot as outcome in the name of BLM, are only hurting their cause. I know they are angry and sick of it all. Until I’m in those shoes I cant say how I’d act upon those feelings though. So basically, I’m going to stop rambling and conclude with, all lives matter. Practice this belief if it’s what we all truly belive and this wont be an issue. Black lives matter is to point out that they are excluded from this right to life, not to say they are more important or that only their life matters. I can imagine saying all lives matter makes them feel even more angry and helpless and irrelevant. Like theyll never get it across and must accept this cruel reality they were born into.

Improve your grammar. I know it’s stupid to not be able to get through your honestly good thoughts just because you dont English well, but yeah, I couldn’t make it through a post that long with grammar that bad.

BLM doesn’t mean that other people’s lives don’t matter, it just means that we want to spend some time focusing on Black Lives since they need our support right now.

on October 17, 2020

Blacks are by far not targeted and don’t need the most time being focused because in the Middle East woman just got the right to drive. America isn’t perfect but it’s not that bad to be in since many people come over here for Better lives and many other countries aren’t as good as us when it comes to freedom and rights. Now I understand don’t compare yourself to lower standards but we are the highest standard

on November 3, 2020

@whysomad_hsksksnnsms way to stroke your own ideological ego through straw man arguments. BLM is an American movement. Keep it to the USA. Women in the middle east is a silly thing to bring up in response to an American issue. I cant even reasonably attack your first statement because it’s a straw man and I’d like to show you how you’re wrong without that nonsense. (If you think I cant tho bet)

on November 28, 2020

Bet. Let’s go. Your so wrong it’s not funny. I’m about to end your career. BLM is a ridiculous movement to glorify black punishment. If people truly realized that blacks aren’t oppressed then it wouldn’t be a big thing but because media can make huge amounts of money off BLM they will keep milking it. How are they oppressed. I have many facts to back up my reason. I’ll let you answer how they are oppressed.

on December 30, 2020

Ahh I’ve found our first big disagreement. Probably my fault for the somewhat toxic reply but I love the toxic shit so whatever lol. Happy I’ve found you friend.

Okay, so I’m a big believer that on paper (in the USA, which I hope we stick to) we enjoy something pretty close to legal equality. However one form of minority oppression manifests through the legal wiggle room inherent to our system. I also don’t think that most legal minority oppression is done consciously, so I don’t think that when a judge is harsher on minority sentencing its because he hates the black person in front of him, but more that they’re probably more likely to be from a bad area with a more prevalent criminal culture, and therefore is sort of justifiably sentenced more harshly from a very narrow viewpoint. Repeat petty criminal from a high crime culture with criminal associates gets sentenced worse than a suburban white guy. Justifiable. Sort of. But if we zoom out, the narrowly justifiable solution results in furthering both criminality in those areas and external views of that culture as inherently criminal. There is a compounding effect which drives both criminality but also further harshness upon the people we are driving to be more highly criminal.

The wiggle room thing applies to enforcement too but in largely the same way and would make this reply too TLDR. I happily await your response, and I am willing to move on my position if you can prove the oppression doesn’t exist. I also agree that there is a ton of profit motive behind popularizing and commodifying BLM and selling it back to the people who are angered over oppression and its disgusting. I would push back on it a little but I think thats best argued separately.

All lives cant matter unless black lives matter.

on November 28, 2020

Who said BLM. People say this and I want to laugh. White Americans have the lowest poverty rate in America but blacks are oppressed. Female blacks have a higher graduation rate then white men for college but blacks are oppressed. If anyone wants to challenge me like @bangaalore then we can debate

on December 30, 2020

Hell yeah we can lol. First, maybe you misspoke, but lowest poverty rate is a comparative advantage. Also, yes there are problems with affirmative action. I agree. Also between you and me @whysomad this all lives matter comment is a shitty meme lol not worth our time. Everybody knows that any argument using the words “all lives” is crappy regardless of which side it comes from.
