The Black Lives Matter movement started on social media after the aquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting of African-American teen Trayvon Martin back in 2013. Many people missunderstood (and still don’t understand) the meaning and purpose of BLM and started the All Lives Matter campaign to include the importance of all races and people.
People fail to understand that by saying ‘all lives matter’ you’re just neglecting the institutional racisme and oppression against black people.
Every human life matters, however black people are being systematicaly targeted and oppressed by court rooms and armed police forces right now. It’s only natural that we should support the BLM campaign.
So Twitter started to remind us how all lives didn’t matter and how some people can be hypocrites in terms of outrage on violence. Here are some of the best tweets.
This is too deep:

Not to forget the shooting of Dylan Noble by Fresno PD last month and how All Lives Matter supporters were surprisingly silent on his death:
It’s safe to say that the ALM operation is simply to silence the BLM movement and not to actually demand justice for useless violence. The BLM movement sympathised more with Dylan Noble (a white male) than ALM ever could.
