I've been wondering why people say "Black Lives Matter" instead of "All Lives matter". I have read articles, books, and though about it myself, but the reason people say that is because people almost never commit hate crimes against white people. Often, Black innocent people get hurt because of hate. Let's say you cut your self when you fell down on your knee. You wouldn't put band-aids all over your body, just that one cut. Since people of color are hurting, they need people to pay attention to what injustices are happening against them. All lives DO matter. But, for America, or metaphorically our body to become stronger, we need to patch up and heal that wound of injustice and hate against people of color.
