Saying that all lives matter is an affirmation of the value of human life in general, not a rally cry for white hate. The "black lives matter" mantra, on the other hand, is an affirmation of the systemic victim mentality that pervades the African American community.
By invoking that hashtag, African Americans are reiterating the belief that we're constantly being "picked on" by the white establishment. It completely ignores the empirical evidence that statistics on education, crime, domestic violence, and socioeconomic status can provide. It's simply true that more education leads to higher income. It's also true that blacks (especially black youth) don't value education in the same way other racial groups do. Is the quality of the education lesser? Yes, but as a result, the grading system is much less stringent than in predominantly white schools. An easier path to passing grades should lead to increased matriculation, and yet, in overwhelmingly black schools and neighborhoods, it doesn't.
When we don't prioritize education over the "hustle", we set in motion a chain of events that leads directly to increased poverty, drug use, crime, and incarceration. Is the white man to blame for our lack of ability to set priorities, or take accountability for our choices and actions? Nope. We actively choose that fate, and then have the audacity to complain about the self-fulfilling prophecy that we've set in motion. Nobody throws up the #blacklivesmatter when some gang bangers shoot up a neighborhood, and kill 3 or 4 of their own people... The truth is that "black lives matter" is only relevant to black people when they have a white person to point the finger at. That makes the hashtag - in my mind - inherently racist and intentionally divisive and inflammatory.
Do black lives matter? Of course they do, but not more so than Asian, Hispanic, Arab, Native American, European, or white lives. We need to stop with the cop-out, stand up and say, "yep, my problems are partially my fault too".
So on that note - #Alllivesmatter
On a side note, I also find "Black Twitter" to be a joke... If "White Twitter" was a thing, blacks would be screaming "racism" until they were blue in the face. Yet another example of blacks intentionally segregating themselves from society in an attempt to create the perception of exclusion where it doesn't exist.
This is an inverted 24 hour watch, with a dial divided into 10 minute segments. It will only make one full rotation each day, but the accuracy is on point. As the second image shows, the unique nature of the watch dial also accurately tracks the position of the sun. There's additional description in the watch file itself. Enjoy guys!

Sorry for any confusion with the sun location image, guys. While I pulled it directly from the Botta website, there's no way (at least I can't find a way) it can be accurately replicated in Watchmaker.
The MLS may look at this as a win - they'll certainly gain more Mexican viewers as a result - along with the signings of Gerrard, Lampard, and Kaka, but the truth is that the designated player (typically over-the-hill former EPL players) is hurting the American game. Our problem is that we don't develop young talent properly, which is why we fail in major tournaments (and no, the Gold Cup isn't a major tournament). Instead of tying up $21 million on 3 designated players per team, we should be pumping that money into youth systems, but nooooo... This is 'Murica, where we're, instead of taking a steady approach to building the game, we're splashing out cash (on antiquated former stars) in a vain attempt to be relevant. This is why - when it comes to football - America can't have nice things.
