    Kudos to Urich and other Gamecocks for starting this foundation to bring light to this issue. He (and Carolina football) got great PR when his protest sign went viral. Now that the SEC office has stated teams can sport these kind of patches this year, our team should wear a "Matter is the Minimum" patch to bring more light to the cause and support these Gamecocks.

    Shouldn't each player get to choose the patch he wants to wear?

    It'd be nice if our football program mattered. They're too busy virtue signaling though.

    It's just another form of BLM, a lot of people are being guilted into believing the US is the worse racist country known to mankind and it has been mistreating all minorities with social injustice.

    Maybe “110 years” embroidered over a toilet being flushed patch since the brain trust is short-sighted enough to interrupt and flush the formally longest consecutively-played rivalry of its type in the nation

    How about all lives matter instead of focusing on one group. Focusing on one race, That’s kind of racist isn’t it? Should white lives matter be allowed? Why not? Or Why? Keep politics off the field.

    I was afraid someone would throw animals in there. For the record I'm not for rodents, Armadillos, coyotes, squirrels, gnats or mosquitoes or poisonous snakes.

    Wait a few more years it WILL be “robot live matter”. We are closer to that than people realize already.

    There is no better country on earth to live in as a minority than the United States. Hands down. Blacks are treated horribly all over Europe and Asia.

    And Africa... That all said, there is plenty of room for improvement still here. The backlash to black people simply saying their LIVES MATTER (that saying does not mean others don’t..) proves we still have a long way to go.

    Because of the act of one very stupid cop coupled with a pandemic that has a bunch of people with too much time on their hands has lead some of our population to get behind a movement that has labeled most white people as supremacist , and racist, That the country doesn’t care about helping anyone that might or might not be less fortunate than them. Is our country perfect? Heck no, but there is no better place to live and it’s time most the the complainers put on a pair of Big Boy Pants and learn that not all things are fair. Hardwork and honestly will open more doors than calling out any race of people

    So then why is considered racist to say "all lives matter"?

    And, not so sure about the Africa thing (though a continent and not a country). Apartheid was going on until the 1990s.

    I didn’t say I personally felt it was racist to say all lives matter. My point was that having an issue with black people simply saying their “lives matter”, implies you do not feel that they do matter, right? Like what other rationale can anyone apply to people who say black lives do NOT matter? If you are a white person denying that the lives of people of color EVEN MATTER.. You most certainly are the walking talking definition or racism. Yes, plenty of people have responded to BLM with that exact notion. There was a guy who posted a compilation if him (a white guy) standing in front of a Wal Mart in the rural south recently and... Well just watch it:



    That is racism. Now, as to the question “why is saying All lives matter considered by some to be racist“? Type that into google and read any of the billions of articles on the subject. Here is the first that popped up for me:
    https://www.distractify.com/p/why-is-all-lives-matter-considered-racist

    In essence- if you were just talking with a friend and said “I love all people, all of their lives matter to me”... That is fine in the context of normal conversation right? If you say it in response to someone protesting the racist treatment of black people in America it is viewed as a denial of even the existence of racism... Implying we are all on a level field and no one race needs help over another. Something along those lines, explained a thousand different ways... Again, google can explain it better than I- being a white man I cannot pretend to fully understand the plight of other races/sexes...

    Yes, I am aware Africa is a continent. Thanks for the geography refresher! LOL

    I had once thought a good bit about that issue but with everything else forgot. You are right....be interesting once the robots get beyond their programming and start thinking for themselves how all of this would go.

    Yeah... I was being totally serious, not picking on BLM or ALM with that comment at all. AI may already be out of control... It is the central theme of a ton of modern sci fi because most of the smartest “futurists” believe AI will likely end us eventually.

    Do yourselves a favor and educate yourselves on BLM as a group.
    Read their mission statement, watch interviews with their leadership.
    They are a Socialist/Marxist activist group , and they make no illusions about it.
    They are anti-capitalism, anti-nuclear family, and anti-democracy by their own admission.
    They appear to care very little about any "black lives" that don't forward their narrative or increase their undeserved power.
    I am all for addressing police accountability (start by busting the police unions). I am all for addressing the manner in which minority communities are policed. I have no issue with people of color saying their lives matter, as long as no one has an issue with me saying all lives matter. Because the "all" encompasses ALL, including black lives.
    But the ORGANIZATION calling themselves Black Lives Matter, is a crock.

    How many BLM members have you spoken to? Because if someone directs others to "educate" themselves, I'm certain they've done more than just read the internet. I'm positive someone like that would have already engaged the people they claim to know so much about. So, tell us, what did you discuss with them?

    I've watched virtually every interview and video available where the leadership of BLM is laying out their background and plans. They openly admit they are trained activists. The Socialist/Marxist, anti-family, anti-Christian rhetoric is on THEIR OWN WEBSITE.
    I don't need to speak directly to anyone in the group, when they have so brazenly shared their philosophies.

    Wow, you're insinuating all the leadership of BLM are lying when THEIR words come out of THEIR mouths, and that they're lying in their mission statement.

    You just presumed I'm not black myself, and insinuated I'm averse to conversing with black people.
    That's reverse-racism!
    It's stunning they allow your intolerance to exist on this site.
    You're a damn monster!

    Says the "educate" yourselves guy that has never held a conversation with the group he claims to know so much about. Imagine Reagan just nuking Russia instead of actually meeting with Gorbachev. Sounds kind of stupid, doesn't it...

    That may literally be the most ignorant analogy I have ever seen.
    And the assertion that an opinion can't be based on the vast amount of information readily available on the group in question, most of it directly from said group, is beyond nonsensical.
    By that logic, we could never understand any group that existed in the past, because we can't speak directly to their members. Sounds kind of stupid, doesn't it...….

    Not everyone who utters the phrase BLM is a member of said organization or an embodiment of their beliefs.

    The phrase is a cry for help from the black community. The organization that named itself that IS a “community organizer”- basically an antifa spinoff. Do not confuse the two things... I can completely see how that is horribly confusing for many though.

    Again- do the lives of black people matter? If you personally believe they do not you most certainly are a racist.
    If you feel that a person saying “Black lives matter” is somehow implying they matter more than other lives or implying other lives don’t matter... You should firmly reassess why you feel that as virtually nobody who is saying that is also saying white/Asian... Lives do NOT matter.

    *The complication to this is when they add in “f@$k 12” and comparable sentiments- which most certainly implies the people saying that do NOT feel that “Blue Lives matter”, and I cannot personally support anyone who feels attacking police or destroying their buildings, cars or the cities we live in is a suitable form of protest. These are all separate issues that get muddied because of the madness we are living through in society today.

    Hence why I specified I was alluding to the "organization" BLM.
    And specified I have no issue with the desire to discuss police accountability etc..

    No, your comment is stupid. You actually have an opportunity to discuss, try to find common ground, perhaps even educate your fellow American, but you refuse. You have all the knowledge you need from the internet. Lol. I hope you have a nice weekend. Its beautiful outside.
