“Local news station WBTV reports that 27-year-old John Walter Miles allegedly became upset while shopping with his girlfriend last week because the store clerk would not sell him booze.
He then called the employee a racial slur, at which point a bystander took out their phone and started recording his behavior.
It’s not necessarily true that all people are bad actors, when they respond with “all lives matter”…Some are being quite genuine…
…But I do agree that “black lives matter” exists to address a particular state of emergency, currently threatening black people…and as such, it’s far more respectful and appropriate for non-black people to recognize and support the base focus of “black lives matter”.
