Black lives matter? To who?



(Couldn’t locate a relevant anime image for post)

Since early December 2014, people have been screaming black lives matter, primarily black people. Every single time a white police officer shoots a black man, every black person in America screams black lives matter. But do they really? The answer depends. Do all lives matter? Again, it depends. For a more blunt answer, no, not all lives matter. Some lives do matter, some lives do not. When it comes to police officers, their lives matter. When it comes to firefighters, their lives matter. When it comes to a very important person, their life matters. The importance of somebody’s life does not depend on if they are human or not, but how important they are to the general population and the world over. And I do not mean popular, I mean important. If you do not know what I mean that, I will spell it out for you.

Which life matters more, the life of a man that is trying to make the world better or life of a homeless person with no job, no education and no real future? Which life matters more, the life of somebody trying to protect people or the life of somebody screaming in the face of that person, for no reason other than the fact that they are in uniform? The answer is damn obvious.

To expand my reasoning further, overall it comes down to the inferior and the superior. There is no such thing as all lives are equal – That is just a bullshit myth. It might reign true in the mind of a kindergartners, but in the mind of an intelligent person with reasoning, all lives do not matter, only some and others do not matter at all.

Speaking of which, isn’t it funny how the people that say black lives matter, only directed that crap towards police officers, but whenever a black person is shot by another black person nobody says a fucking thing….you know, other than police officers seeking justice for the murdered black man. Do you know why that is? It is because black lives do not matter to the people screaming BLACK LIVES MATTER, this black lives matter movement is just another anti-police movement NOT an anti-police brutality movement.

Hell, black people seem to kill each other more often than police officers kill black people, so if black lives did mattered, why direct your crap at whites and particularly police? 90% of blacks that are murdered in the US are murdered not by whites or police officers, but by their own fucking kind. This is according to the FBI’s annual crime statistics report. Around 13,000 people every year are murdered every year in the United States, a little over half were blacks. If you do the math, almost 7,000 blacks are murdered every year, 6,300 of those black murders were done by other blacks(not police officers).

So, stop saying “black lives matter” or “all lives matter” and start saying “some lives matter” because, in the real world, that is the actual phrase people should be chanting.
