Yes. The alternative is that we make some people disposable.
Then all lives matter.
The trouble is that to some lives are disposable. People throughout history didn’t value other’s lives or valued their lives over others. It’s how we ended up slavery, segregation, sex trafficking, child soldiers, the holocaust and mass genocides.
The real question is, do all lives matter to each other. Also does anyone have the right to determine whose life does and does not matter? Too many people put too much value in their own lives over others.
Hello. Let me know what you think! Thanks!

The answer to this question depends on the point of view used to find an answer.
If we answer that question from an internal point of view, then we must honestly answer 'no'. There are far more lives on earth that don't matter to me- they have no effect on my life- than there are lives that do effect my life.
But if we answer this question from an external point of view then all lives matter to someone.
Most importantly, answer this question from the point of view of your Standard of Truth. On what do you base your beliefs?
If you believe the Bible to be God's word and a worthy Standard of Truth, then from that point of view, absolutely yes, all lives matter.
Evolution, on the other hand, teaches that all lives are accidents, therefore none of them really matter.
The Hindu vedas teach that some lives are more valuable than others. Islam teaches that only Muslim lives matter. And on and on...
Personally, I believe the Bible is God's word and that all lives matter to their Creator.
All lives matter in the eyes of God, but among the people, we have been killing one another since Cain and Abel. The bible speaks of oppression, the oppressors, and the oppressed. And it gives us specific instructions on where we each stand.

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 is saying #AllLivesMatter considered racist?I see this everywhere: on Twitter, on forums, and on the news. I am asking this out of pure curiosity and confusion, because I don't see anything racist about the statement/hashtag.

There are too many news stories about racial tensions in the United States; violence, murder, and destruction of property amidst the chaos of racially charged events is putting unnecessary stress on this nation. The Black Lives Matter group is usually connected, if only because the group has...
