    It appears that it is only politically correct to say "Black Lives Matter" in the Democratic Party. To add white lives matter and all lives matter receives boos forcing a Democratic Candidate for President to apologize.

    Finnegan posted about #NotAllMen, stating that it's something used to deflect the conversation away from those who feel uncomfortable about the implications of men and rape. This "all lives matter" mantra may have been "booed" for being similar with whites and systemic abuse toward blacks.

    And perhaps some may have also thought he could have been referring to the lives of aborted babies. Who knows? Anyway the liberal convention did not appreciate it for whatever reason.

    It's really pretty simple. Recent events have focused interest on police treatment of blacks, notably deaths. Hence the need for action, a part of which is to say black lives matter. This draws attention to an issue that whites apparently don't have. The protesters are protesting what is (apparently) mostly white police treatment of blacks. "All lives matter" may be true, but it diverts attention from what the protesters see is a race issue.

    Universities have already implemented affirmative action which enables them to use the pretext of diversity to accept certain minority candidates with far inferior credentials. It is fair to question whether certain liberal segments a truly interested in treating the white majority equally. If you wish to focus on race issues, lets start by eliminating institutions ability to favor certain races. Unfortunately, that really isn't the goal, right?

    The incidents behind 'stop affirmative action' don't seem to be as gripping as the incidents behind 'black lives matter.'

    Bernie Sanders had his own troubles with the only-black-people-matter crowd the other day. Watch the following for a minute or so for the shouting to start. It calms down for a bit but by 7 minutes the shouting starts up again.

    You know, I saw one of those "Cops' episodes where white cops stopped a car and opened the trunk and this crazy white girl pulls out a gun and starts shooting at the cops, missing them all, but they wrestled the gun from her, got her under control and started yelling at her 'are you crazy'? and hauled her off.

    Does anyone here seriously think if that had been a black girl or man for that matter, popping out of a car trunk, they would have handled it the same way?

    It is pretty clear, they would have shot the black person 20 times or so,

    Then claim, He (she) had a gun, what were we supposed to do? He (she) was a direct threat to our lives.

    But that is not how they handled the situation of a nutter white female actually bearing a pistol and shooting at cops. Kid glove treatment.

    You think that cops are a monolithic group?

    Sure sounds like it from your post.

    Not all people react to stressful situations in the same manner, cops are no exception. Surely, they would have been within their right to pump the crazy girl full of lead, but to bring race into the matter is something that is not justified and only leads to more division and strife. I could say more, but I am going to try to be nice to my enemies today.

    Did it ever cross your mind that Cops is a grade D television show and that perhaps you should get your facts on how a police officer handles a situation from something more substantive?

    All I know is that all this criticism of affirmative action will end the very millisecond that whites become just another minority.
