I remember when BLM first became a thing years ago and there was either a tweet or a Tumblr post that summed up ALM perfectly. It was something like 'Saying ALM in opposition to BLM is like going to someone's funeral and screaming at their friends and family that you too have suffered loss.

It is literally that, just with more racism.

Is it something that needs exposing? Anyone that isn't a special type of dumb, insecure and racist can already see it for what it is.

‘All lives matter’ and ‘let the asylum seekers drown’ seem to cross paths a lot, anyone notice that?

All Lives Matter in response to Black Lives Matter is essentially saying that Black Lives do not matter since the whole reason why BLM exists is because of the US police's violence towards black people. By saying All Lives Matter in response to that is to say you're happy with the status quo, that you're happy with the violence towards a specific minority because you lie to yourself by pretending that all lives matter while trying to quash a minority from saying that they matter too, not that only they matter, not that they matter more, just that they matter.

It's a phrase routed in bigotry, hatred and hypocrisy.

I personally think you give people too much credit in assuming it to be racism in the majority of cases. I genuinely think a lot of these mouthbreathers just genuinely think that people who are saying it mean "only black lives matter to them" and they get butthurt about it. Which is more "unfathomably stupid" than racist.

Racists are unfathomably stupid anyway so how can you distinguish the difference.

There you go again, who said it would be fixed or exploitation will end?
All I suggested was if western democracies get a handle on it at ground level then that would.be beneficial. We've come a long long way in the last 50yrs so Im not sure why you're so negative as to the possibility of future progress.
