Thank you. I've always felt the best response to "Black Lives Matter" is not just "All Lives Matter", but rather "The most important race to respect above all others is the Human Race". Only when we stop singling out specific races to be treated better (which is very different from focusing on eliminating laws with negative consequences that single out specific races) will we be continuing the great improvements regarding Blacks and other minorities that have been made since World War II. It is the very highlighting of differences between races that eats away at what most of us really want to see: a society in which it is one's actions and not one's appearance which are evaluated on their own merits which are appropriate measures of how one should perceive others around them. The BLM movement is based solely on pushing an elevation of one race; it excludes Asians, Latinos, Indians, and so forth and wants everyone to pledge their support of those who are "Black". Not a healthy theme.

Clap clap clap! Thank you for addressing the true motive of BLM. They are very sneaky. It’s not what they want you to think it is. Of course we agree Black Lives Matter, as well as ALL other lives. But they are doing more damage to divide and to promote racism than to help it.
