All lives matter. Obviously.
A friend was offended, however, when she saw demonstrators recently chanting “Black Lives Matter.” She made the same point as above. All lives matter, she said.
I lit into her, but good.
Of course, all lives should matter. But black lives still don’t. There is abundant evidence to that effect, far too much to recount here.
I have written several times in the last decade that we’re now in a “fourth riding of the KKK,” and events have borne that out. That’s how history will record our time.
