The same people who were pretty hot for ‘all lives mattering’ last month seem to have changed their mind after being asked to wear a small piece of fabric over part of their face.
In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, a lot of the more tedious people on your Facebook wall were countering with “All Lives Matter”, supposedly out of a desire to express the fact that all lives are equally important, rather than to shut down any conversations about racial inequality in the West.
