Black Lives Matter; All Lives Matter

Seems like the OP of a Facebook message I shared the other day about Black Lives Matter deleted her post, causing my post to disappear as a result. I wonder what happened to her. Anyway, in all seriousness, I’d like to recap on the message I said in that deleted post:

Black Lives Matter; and, for that matter, every single life matters, regardless of what race they’re told they belong to by the so-called conventional wisdom.
Yet, with a backdrop of the current disproportionate discrimination against blacks, I feel compelled to emphasize once again that Black Lives Matter.
However, that is not to say that the discriminated ought to resort to violence. Force is never the answer; it would only backfire, as can be observed in America proper recently. Their frustration is palpable; it has been so. But only through meaningful, genuine discourse can we solve the deep-rooted issue.
I am for one against all forms of discrimination, which, categorically, includes reverse discrimination, in which the initial discriminator is now being discriminated against.
Black Lives Matter; All Lives Matter.
 
That’s all that matters.
