Is it seen as racist to say all lives matter now?


I saw someone called a racist on twitter for sharing a story with the #AllLivesMatter. Is it somehow seen politically incorrect now to care about all lives? I'm a bit confused. I see this as a good thing, not bad.

    Why can't it be viewed as including them instead of diverting if it is for the same cause, such as stopping police brutality? "All" does not mean white, it means ALL races. If all races are impacted by the same problem they should unite it seems.

    My sole purpose of #AllLivesMatter is to show my support for ALL people being murdered by the police. It's sad that I can't voice that because I look white. I don't want to take away from the cause, but contribute and add to it.

    So you're saying bad apples ruined the phrase for those of us who actually mean it? That's sad.

    See this bothers me, I'm sympathetic to all people hurt or treated wrongly. I understand black people have been through a lot. It IS to shift attention in sort of, from any one group to all people. Doesn't mean racism doesn't exist.

    Ok so if a white person is murdered by a cop why is there an issue in saying #alllivesmatter, isn't drawing attention to police brutality the point? Or is it only the point if they murder black people. I really don't get it.

    My point exactly. Equality incorporates all, not some. Instead of dividing us we should unite against these problems. Being part of a diff group is ok, but to end racism we have to fight together for all of us not just one group.

    I think I get this. People who disagree with you are both morons and idiots. It reminds me that BLM truly ignores black lives in developing nations. It should be American BLM. Truly amazing how nationalistic BLM is. With the 35 million from Soros?
