I confess I am somewhat bemused by this “Black Lives Matter” lark.
In my humble opinion, all lives matter so is it not implicitly racist to distinguish one race from the rest? Are they saying that white lives are of no consequence? That would be distinctly racist, but as I say, it’s just my opinion.
What really bemuses me though is what all these demonstrators hope to achieve? I can understand the Mercans getting worried as their cities burn and the population goes into full Rambo mode, but do they really give a shit about marches in Ireland or anywhere else for that matter? Is the ambassador going to phone the White House to tell Trump that he is shitting his pants and could Trump please do something about it? I can imagine the response [on Twitter, of course] – “Grow a pair of BALLS” [Trump cares not for gender or CAPSLOCK]. Naturally Trump would immediately fire the ambassador as that appears to be a standard response to anything he doesn’t like.
So I won’t be joining any marches. I will only be going down on one knee to search for something else Herself has dropped under her bed. I don’t go for virtue signalling, if I even understand what virtue signalling is.
It’s all pretty pointless.
