Saying 'Lives Matter' After Anything Other Than 'Black'...is Racist?!
When we say "all" or "olive" followed by "lives matter" we're called raaaaaaacists! (see OUTRAGE! Lebron James Says He’ll Stand for National Anthem. ‘All lives matter…’ and Restauranteur Sticks it to Angry Liberals with “Black Olives Matter” Slogan…). But now we learn from Western University that indeed, anything other than "Black Lives Matter"? Totally is racist. Because a college somebody said it. So it's totes official now, you guys.
First, the offensively offensive picture. TRIGGER WARNING!
Just a few bros being bros, bro. At least that's how you, a sane person, sees this photo. That's why you're a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobic, transphobic, asexual-hating ninny pants. How dare you.
Of course to a liberal with a giant, knobby staff up his/her/ze's anus, these four dudes being dudes, who are white (and male, the audacity) all SMILING and showing school pride by culturally appropriating spray paint from gangs, written on a WHITE SHEET from the KKK flee market, saying their college lives matter is OUTRAGEOUS!
Ergo the CTRL+ALT+OUTRAGE...
One anti-racism activist said the young age of the students is no excuse for the offensive banner.
“We can minimize racism as we always have done, we can minimize the experiences of people of colour, we can say kids can be kids, but they are adults,” said Mojdeh Cox.
“The reality is, that is racism. Anyone who tags anything and sticks “lives matter” on the end isn’t fooling anyone.
“There are well-informed people who will say that is racism.”
FACT CHECK: If you say this is racism, you are not well-informed. Take the paint can away from your face. If you want to sniff something, may I suggest a flower? No? Perhaps a nice cup of coffee? No? Well if the coffee is hot enough, might I suggest you tip it all over your face? No? Your lap then. It's already soiled, so what's the harm?
That banner isn't offensive, yo. The sheet is just a sheet. It's not actually from the KKK. It was a joke. A "joke" is a device meant to tickle the funny bone. Which you were born without. Twit.
Now, lives matter. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Asian lives. Unborn lives. Human lives matter. Saying human lives matter isn't racist. The movement #BlackLivesMatter? They might actually be racist. Not people who believe that black lives (and every other life) matters, but the group who cares not at all about facts and who advocates for violence against police? Yeah, they're the racist ones. Read Black Lives Matter Founder Tweets About 'Killing White Folk.' Lashes Out at Critics.
So seriously, man. Put down the paint. Sniff something less toxic. Your own flatulence even.
As for lives mattering and all that jazz...
