All lives matter. That should be obvious, but apparently, it's not.
The #BlackLivesMatter movement began as a way to draw attention to racially motivated police brutality.
Unfortunately, the power of this slogan has been lost, by these same community activists' refusal to protest something far more widespread: the epidemic of black-on-black crime.

Yet the media and many activists play down this reality to push their own selfish, cynical political agenda.
After yesterday's horrific shooting in Virginia, many people rushed to politicize, and racialize, the killings. Why can't we embrace the idea that "all lives matter" instead?
