Why Are There White People Saying All Lives Matter And Are Black People Offended By This?

white people black

All white people need to have a talk about the word “All Lives Matter.” Notice that no one was saying “All Lives Matter” before people started saying “Black Lives Matter.” All Lives Matter” is some kind of a response to “Black Lives Matter.” Is “Black Lives Matter” making us uncomfortable?

Are white and black people the same?

Now some white people might say that screaming out Black people’s lives as mattering means that white lives don’t matter. Of course, that’s silly. Something is pushing people to say “All Lives Matter” in biggest response to “Black Lives Matter.” Many of the people saying “All Lives Matter” also are fond of saying “Blue Lives Matter. That should tell us something. There’s something deeply discomfiting about the word “Black.” I think it’s because it reminds us of our whiteness and challenges our notion that race doesn’t matter.

Are white people colorblind when comes to color

Is it better saying “African-American,” or “Black?” We were raised to believe that “colorblindness” was the ideal for whites. And saying the word “Black” was an acknowledgment of the fact that we did “see color.” The problem with being “colorblind” aside from the fact that we’re not really, white people are able to ignore race. White people are not paying attention to race, white or black. The reason is because whiteness is treated as the default in our society. Whiteness is not a problem for white people it has never been. Black people don’t have the luxury of being “colorblind.” They live in a culture which constantly reminds them of their Blackness.They are saying that their lives actually do not matter as much as white lives. And that is why saying “Black Lives Matter” is something important.

Is there racism between black and white people and can it be prevented?

“All Lives Matter” is a problem for Black live supporters. It distracts and diminishes the message that Black lives matter or that they should matter more than they do. No one is asking the question whether white lives matter. The question of whether Black lives really matter is just an open question.
