Church Gets Violent Threats Over ‘Black Lives Matter’ Sign??
Readers, a predominantly white church in Chicago changed their sign in front of the church to say "Black Lives Matter" and received criticism and threats on social media from people who thought they were endorsing terrorism.
In my opinion responding to "BLACK LIVES MATTER" by saying "ALL LIVES MATTER" diminishes once again the lives of the black community. "Black lives matter" is an exclamation, a voice to be recognized. It points out that black lives have not mattered for hundreds of years. Of course all lives matter. They always have! With some folks inability to agree with "black lives matter" is precisely the reason for the need of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
