When Does Or When Will Reality Settle In For Them

All Lives Matter is a tangential semblance of an implied or an inferred maintenance of the status quo

All Lives Matter is true only if Black Lives Matter

Earlier this month, hundreds took to the streets to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter in Poland. On the same day, Tokyo protesters marched and carried signs that read “Stop racism in Japan!” and “Black Lives Matter.” In Bogota, Colombia, local protesters burned an American flag and also called attention to police brutality and racism within its own borders, including the death of Anderson Arboleda, who was killed by Colombian police for violating quarantine. From London to South Africa, thousands are taking a stand in solidarity with African Americans in the fight against police brutality. -Vox

The slogan All Lives Matter is a misnomer at best and at worst is the dismissal or motivated ignorance of the socially constructed scam, injustice, and predation of white peoples on people of color, which in turn unjustly and unduly elevates the social status of whites as a collective at the detriment of others.

U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson is a proponent of All Lives Matter,[7] as is Senator Rand Paul, who has claimed that Black Lives Matter “focused on the wrong targets.” Paul stated that “I think they should change their name maybe — if they were All Lives Matter, or Innocent Lives Matter.”[8] In 2016, presidential candidate (and subsequent president) Donald Trump claimed that “Black Lives Matter” is a divisive and racist term.[9]

This does not comport with the reality principle.

This explains why the likes of Ben Carson whom so otherworldly placates and aligns himself with the vanity and insanity of whiteness can be so motivationally ignorant as a person of color. Carson as well as his sponsors and groupthink affiliations with racializations have distorted views of reality due to their hyper-rationalizations that attempt to ward off an inconvenient truth. He is no different than a man who has rationalized smoking several packs of cigarettes a day knowing full well that it can lead to cancer (even though it actually says this on the carton).

The world is experiencing a health crisis — the coronavirus pandemic — yet we don’t see all lives mattering when it comes to recognizing that we need to keep each other safe. There is no reliable or plausible method to just keeping yourself safe from the virus it must be twofold and this is the way PPE works in coordination as we all need to interact or interdepend on one another. There is no such thing as a discrete individual or class or group — the boundaries between us all are blurred by our own humanity.

Unfortunately, you have these white entitlement stunts and silly white privileging but dangerous incidences more frequently making it through the media cycle. On full display are these racialized confrontations premeditated by this delusional notion and belief that white supremacy actually made America great. The cause of which culminates into civil rights and resistance to immoral attitudes and behaviors that offer grounds for marches, protests, removal of the ahistorical social value in certain monumental statues, and confrontations with the police and their brutality, is followed by the effect of white supremacy which exposes people of color to dehumanizing inequality, injustice, violence and institutional callousness.

Part of the reason why so many white Americans know so little about the Black experience in America is because they choose not to know. It is willful. For white people to not know that Black people are treated a particular way by the police means they are hiding under a rock. — Interview with Megan Ming Francis, June 26, 2020, Vox

“I hate Black people. I hate (n-word). I hate Black people,” the woman is heard saying in the video. A man is seen approaching the woman and she tells him, “You better kill that (n-word).”

White supremacy never made America great, it held the potential of America back for quite some time and seems to be trying to destroy it altogether. White supremacy is the sort of cognitive dissonance that satiates while cannibalizing its own tribe. Without acting on it, hating Black people for instance, may seem harmless, even as an individual right of expression, but it informs all sorts of cognitive biases that systemically does harm to everyone including the hater since we are interdependent on one another as a species. And since those sinful thoughts and incorrigble beliefs do fester they are also inconsistent and incompatible with reality. It doesn’t inspire confidence and it doesn't enlighten, rather it exposes negativity and unhealthy outcomes both physically and mentally and for society this would not make it great — just the opposite.
