I don’t think there’s anything that infuriates the Black Lives Matter crowd more than the declaration that all lives matter.
Can they deny that all lives matter? Of course not, but they’ll still call you a racist anyway. Apparently they think we need to say black lives matter because black lives are the ones under attack by police…. the same police who kill more white people each year than blacks.
The BLM debate has entered the sports world thanks to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest of the national anthem. The quarterback, earning $19 million a year, says he won’t honor a nation that oppresses black people. In the twisted world of identity politics, a black man earning $19 million a year is more oppressed than a homeless white guy because of skin color.
Some athletes have joined his protest – while others were quite vocally opposed. The other day, Lebron James had the most reasonable commentary on the matter.
He stated: “Me, standing for the national anthem is something I will do. That’s who I am. That’s what I believe in. But that doesn’t mean I don’t respect and don’t agree with what Colin Kaepernick is doing.”
That’s probably the most balanced stance on this whole debacle I’ve seen thus far. He concluded with three words that are going to drive liberals nuts, adding “I’m not up here saying that all the police are bad, because they’re not.I’m not up here saying all kids are great and all adults are great, because they’re not. But at the same time, all lives do matter. It’s not just about black or white, it’s everyone.”
And how are liberals reacting? As unreasonably as you’d expect from them. As Top Right News reported:

But some awesome folks came to LeBron’s defense to remind Blacks of how much LeBron has helped their community:
LeBron James just donated $41.8M to the University of Akron in Ohio, giving 1,100 kids a full 4-yr scholarship but y’all calling him a coon.

To be fair, Obama has made things WORSE for blacks, not better AT ALL!
