Gurnelista, people from all races/ethnicities suffer racism on a daily basis. This isn’t exclusive to the race of black people.
I just don’t understand if this movement was for real good, it would choose not to band together with the 90+% of non racist white people.
“I understand that point of view WG, but the problem with only saying ‘all lives matter’ is that it loses the focus on black lives”
Anybody could quite easily counteract that and say with this movement all about black lives mattering, aren’t the other races/ethnicities being ignored ?
White people don’t face the same racial discrimination as black people. Not in this country or the USA, where it originated. So to focus on it as some equivalent would cause less focus on what’s needed to be done for black people.
Given the movement is to bring to light issues black people face I don’t see why it should be made to include others. Not including others doesn’t mean they have a dislike for other ethnicities. It just means they want to focus on issues which affect them as part of that group/movement. If they encompass others the issues they want to focus on would become sidelined.
