The Black Lives Matter movement is extremely important! However, there is also the All Lives Matter movement. The ALM movement is nice, and yes, all lives do matter, but it's imperative that we focus on black lives currently. They're suffering the most! They've been oppressed and hurt all throughout history and they still are. It's like there are many trees in a forest during a hurricane. Some trees are sturdy, others are swaying in the wind precariously, but one is about to collapse! Should we spread out and secure all the trees, or focus on the collapsing one first?
