So a nice lady tries to throw oil on the waters and emphasize that ALL lives matter in the wake of the idiot savage murder rampages after the Ferguson non-incident, and she gets butchered for using the word “all” instead of “black”?
“We are united in our insistence that all lives matter,” read the e-mail, in which [Smith College President Kathleen McCartney] made clear she was strongly behind the [Eric Garner/Michael Brown] protests, writing that the grand jury decisions had “led to a shared fury… We gather in vigil, we raise our voices in protest.”
But she soon received backlash from students for her phrasing. They were offended that she did not stick with the slogan “black lives matter.”…
In response to student backlash, McCartney apologized in another campus-wide email Friday, saying she had made a mistake “despite my best intentions.”…
“I regret that I was unaware the phrase/hashtag “all lives matter” has been used by some to draw attention away from the focus on institutional violence against Black people,” she wrote.
Alright, check. It’s not like His Imperial Majesty is surprised, but at least we’ve now confirmed that some lives matter more than others. How very racist of you.
This country is fucked.
At least until somebody has the stones to stand up and say “shut the fuck up” to the worthless wastes of skin.
