    If all black lives matter, then ALLLLLLLLL black lives matter..... not just the ones that the media will be interested in bringing their cameras out for. The slogan is very empty when it's obviously only used during certain situations.

    The cumulation of this post and all your others posts in this thread shows your racial prejudice, and I am saying this in a honest way, not a personal attack, trolling kind of way. You can't argue one minute that race doesn't matter and all you see is people, and all lives matter, and then try to criticize black people for not using the hashtag when black on black crime happens. You yourself are seeing race in this discussion, and you're obviously showing bias.

    You're not black, but if you care that black lives matter and think the hashtag isn't utilized properly, then next time a black person is killed in south Chicago gang violence, you can trend it yourself. You don't have to be black to show the black community support and love. It should be obvious that black lives matter no matter who takes the life.

    As TPD already gave you the lecture, black lives matter to black people in the ghetto, in south side Chicago, and when another black person murders their son or brother... why do you need them to tell you that on twitter? You said to TPD, well all families care about their members, blah, blah, blah, and then your color-blinders suddenly get switched off somehow and forget what you just said.

    I want to see the #BlackLivesMatter people raising hell when a black man kills a white man (because, you say, that the quote really means that ALL lives should matter). It never happens. Ever.

    Why would I use such a divisive hashtag? ALL lives matter.

    I think that this is separating by color, which should not be happening.

    I also agree with what Josie said - I want to see #blacklivesmatter trending every single time a black person shoots another black person. Not only when a black person is shot by a white person. But then that's all that would ever be trending. Nothing would ever else have a chance to trend, because black on black crime is so ridiculously high that nothing else would ever trend.

    I do not have sufficient knowledge to answer this question in the affirmative and therefore deny the same

    I want to see Shaun King, DeRay, Marcus Lamont Hill and others tweeting how ALL lives matter when a cop shoots a white "kid". They won't.

    How is it divisive? Almost every Black Lives Matter rally is interracial so it isn't dividing by race.

    I care about innocent lives like McKenzie Elliott, which I bet the majority of protesters have forgotten or never even heard of. I personally couldn't care less about thug lives, but those who want to chant "black lives matter" need to quit the BS selective outrage as you've argued.

    All of them. It just seems that some people think some matter more than others. The black lives campaign is merely pointing out that discrepancy.
