The phrase “all lives matter” is now a racial slur.
That’s the opinion Black Lives Matter co-founder Marissa Jenae Johnson expressed on an “O’Reilly Factor” special Sunday on Fox News.
She insisted that black people were “literally being gunned down in the street” and “being rounded up and mass incarcerated and forced into prison slavery” while white people say all lives matter.
She didn’t mention that the easiest way to avoid mass incarceration would be to not commit crimes; rather, she put the blame on white supremacy.
“What it’s gonna take to dismantle white supremacy is white folks actually gotta give up something,” she said. “You have to actually sacrifice yourself. You have to be willing to give up the things that you currently benefit from.”
Give up what? Living?
Johnson said that Democrats have taken the black vote for granted and black people need to “look outside” of the current political system for solutions.
“The Democrats have always been reliant on the black vote,” she said. “Part of what we’re doing is waking black voters up to, sort of, their power as a voting block within the Democratic Party.”
