    It should be a fact that all lives matter,that includes poor people of any race who have not enough to eat(adult and children)..and the homeless should not their lives also matter?
    Mainly,in what the Christians call the final judgment,a LOT of people will have a LOT to explain about why those lives did not matter to them.(Guy in SF said he wants the riff-raff(homeless) off the streets because their presence offends his rich butt.

It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    Here is a link to the story about the Riff-Raff guy

    A quote:
    Justin Keller, a self-described wealthy tech company founder and entrepreneur living in San Francisco for the past three years, has had enough of the homeless roaming his city. He published an open letter to Mayor Ed Lee and Police Chief Greg Suhr on Feb. 15, decrying the "riffraff" walking his streets and bemoaning a commute that forces him to see the "despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day."

    I believe that life is sacred. There is no race, color, creed or anything else attached to that belief. All life does matter yet I hunt and kill for my food. I grow vegetables and fruit and ripp them from the tree to consume. I do take the time to show my respect for the life that is given to sustain me just as I take the time to respect all life. When it comes to humans I tend to love unconditionally. That means that I love each person enough to help where I am able and also enough to allow them to accept the fruit of their labor.

    I know the world is less than the perfection that I would like it to be but there are things that tend to maintain the divisiveness in the world. Quoting numbers and statistics about how likely is to be arrested or shot by police is at best misleading. Police, at least those I know, don't target a particular race to arrest. If "black lives" truly mattered then the people who "believe" that should be working in the south side of Chicago where the black on black death rate is the highest in the nation. It is so common that the media ignores it. The tag line, "black lives matter" is only used in the events that a non black takes the life of a black. It is never invoked when blacks kill other blacks. It is therefore just used to feed the hatred of one group for another group. A tool used to create and maintain divisiveness.

    Maybe, just maybe, if blacks weren't disproportionately affected by poverty, the drug war, a skewed justice system, an apathetic society, police brutality, and hundreds of years of slavery violence in the ghetto or the ghetto as we know it wouldn't be a thing.

    Black Lives Matter is divisive. It should be divisive. These people have been getting fucked for centuries. It's time for their voices to have power. The more they make old white people uncomfortable the better.

    I worked in predominantly black communities around St. Louis as an AmeriCorps volunteer before I joined the Navy.

    The only lives that matter are the ones you think matter and no other. So when you take the 'you' and divide it by the population. Then add in someone's biases toward sex, race, religion,location,etc....you get no lives matter except the ones I think matter. Let's be real clear on that. Every person has their own definition of all. And if I pressed really hard...I could find the life that doesn't really matter to you.

    I just wanted to add an opinion from the 'I don't really care about 'all the lives' group'.

    I know about slavery in America. There were white, yellow, red headed, and black slaves and there were white and black slave owners. There are still white, yellow and black slaves in some parts of the world. When people are born and educated in the USA there is no reason for them to blame someone else for who they are today.
    For me it all comes back to personal responsibility. The individual is the only one who can bring change to their own life. You can either make it better or worse, or you can wallow in it and blame others for who you are. I don't have the desire or the means with which to feel sorry for people who don't try to make their own lives better. There are successes of every color and ethnicity and there are those who would rather live in other ways. I have spent my life trying to be the best person I can be. I made mistakes too but I took the responsibility for them and corrected them where I could. I got an education that I paid for myself. It wasn't easy but then it was worth it in the end.
