“Black lives matter” is only half the story. The whole story is that all lives matter. Most intelligent Americans, black or white, are or seek to be colorblind. And those of us, black or white, support efforts for the equality of all people. So those of us who are or seek the erasing of color differentiation will march in deeds or in our thoughts, individually or collectively, in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.  

We are side-by side and march with you in promoting and strengthening the equality of ALL people, regardless of gender or heritage. But when you, black or white, individually or collectively, indulge in criminal behavior for whatever reason, we, individually or collectively, black AND white, will march against you.
