It’s great to see a black police chief driving Black Lives Matter insane for a change.
While it seems every-time a public figure declares “All Lives Matter” outrage comes fast, that’s just coming from an extremely vocal minority. Just look at the polls and you’ll find that two-thirds of blacks prefer the phrase “All Lives Matter” over “Black Lives Matter.” Are two-thirds of blacks racist then, as the BLM movement would probably have you think? Of course not.
Personally, I think that “All Lives Matter” is even preferable to statements like “Blue Lives Matter.” I don’t see any point in criticizing Black Lives Matter for being exclusionary, and then advocating another exclusionary phrase.
One black police chief in Mississippi agreed. As Breitbart reports, following the violence against officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, one police chief is putting up his own money to send us a reminder.
A black Mississippi police chief has caused somewhat of a stir by putting the slogan “All Lives Matter” on the back of his department’s patrol cars. He paid for the slogan to be affixed to the cars with his own money.
Edwards, Mississippi, Police Chief Torrence Mayfield decided to put the slogan on the cars following the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, and the shootings of the police officers in Dallas, San Diego, and Baton Rouge, according to MS News Now.
The chief said it should not just be about one race, or even just that police lives matter. “Hispanic, Muslim, Jewish — all lives should matter and nothing warrants police officers’ lives lost,” he explained. “We want this to resonate far and abroad. Everywhere. All communities should embrace this.”
“‘Blue Lives Matter’ is not going to be welcome by everyone and neither is ‘Black Lives Matter’,” the chief told the local news outlet. “You are not going to be able to please everyone, but 100 percent of my officers completely agreed, the Mayor agreed and everyone has absolutely loved it.”
If you take a peek at Mayfield’s Twitter, you’ll quickly find that he’s a liberal Democrat who supports Hillary Clinton for President. And yet, the Black Lives Matter movement is too insane for even him.
