All lives matter Breanna jackson

Black lives matter is a topic that seems to come up a lot. I do agree that black lives do matter. Everyones lives matter though. No matter what race you are or what you believe in. We are all human. I understand they are making such a big deal about "Black Lives Matter", because that seems to be whats being forgotten for some people. I do not believe that racism is completely gone. Some people still are racist, and choose to treat people differently because of their color, or where they came from. I agree that this is a big issue. We can't forget though that all lives matter.

"Black Lives Matter", has gotten very big, and very extreme. Cops have been the main target for the whole thing. People say that the cops don't treat black people the same as white people. That's not fully correct though. Some cops are bad, not all cops though. Just because one cop does something wrong, doesn't mean you should start hating all cops. Since July 17th, 2016, there have been 11 cops shot dead, and 9 more wounded by supporters of the BLM.

I believe everyone needs to work together to make this world a better place. Killing cops because one cop killed an African American, is not helping anything. If anything, it's making it worse.

This is something that is very important to me. My dad is a cop and risks his life everyday. In no way is he racist. I worry about my dad when he goes to work because what is going on in this world. Also many African Americans fear for their own life, and also there loved ones. No one should have to fear that they're going to get killed for what color they are, or for what job they have.

The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that's wrong with the world. (Paul farmer)
