I don't think it's that all lives don't matter. It's that police have always targeted black people more, even before we started seeing an increase in police abuse across the board. Black people don't feel obligated to speak up for police abuse against white people... I don't blame them, because most white people won't speak out against that themselves. In fact, most white people will thank the police for violating the civil rights of the victim in question (even if the police have beaten the victim beyond recognition.) But let black people speak out against violations against their people, and conservatives have a fit that they're not saying "all lives matter." Well, the next time police violate the civil rights of a white person on side of the highway, put your money where your mouth is. If you think "all lives matter" turn off the TV and take it to the streets.
