ESPN host attacked for telling ‘Black Lives Matter’ they are WRONG – from a black man’s perspective

Black ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith blasted the Black Lives Matter crowd for its outrage at Democrat presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley saying “all lives matter.”

And they fired back.

“There’s nothing wrong when a presidential candidate says ‘All lives Matter’!” Smith, who months ago suggested all black people should vote Republican in 2016, said on Twitter Tuesday.

He expounded upon the sentiment in a longer tweet asking where the movement is for the much more prevalent issue of black on black violence.

“I’m not debating the significance of ‘Black Lives Matter.’ I’m a BLACK MAN! I know this,” Smith said.

“Where is all this noise when Black folks are getting killed in our communities every single day?” he asked. “Does it only matter when we’re getting killed OUTSIDE OF OUR COMMUNITY, by folks who look differently than us?”

“If we’ve reached a point where a PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE is forced to apologize and engage in clarification when choosing to say “ALL LIVES MATTER” — while a few Black Folks are allowed to reign terror throughout our own community by killing one another with nary a word said about it, then the problems that truly permeate the Black Community will never be resolved,” he added.

The response from black people on Twitter was less than understanding, but Smith did have some supporters.
