Looks Like Someone Finally Cleared Up The Whole '______ Lives Matter' Mystery For Jerry Rice
You know, it's really a shame that we can't take anything at face value anymore. Pretty disappointing that this is what the world has come to. I mean, expecting public figures to think critically about the polarizing social issues that they choose to support on increasingly large platforms? What's next, we start demanding that only qualified people run for President?
Poor Jerry. He just got caught up in the inclusive semantics of 'All Lives Matter' and didn't even realize that it was something that was popularized in direct opposition of 'Black Lives Matter'. He hardly even noticed the all-too-subtle differences in the two phrases. Been going around for months marginalizing the hardships that people of his skin color face when he really just thought he was an advocate for world peace. Was convinced he was doing his white friends a solid by expressing concern for their well being too and - whoopsie - accidentally turned his back on his black friends while they were fighting for equal protection under the law.
Can't even imagine the look on his face when someone explained to his that 'Black Lives Matter' - at is core - was founded to bring awareness to the deaths of innocent African Americans, and 'All Lives Matter' - at it's core - was meant to take the focus off the people whose lives were actually in peril. Just wait until he finds out how the 'Blue Lives' tie into this whole spectrum of human importance. That'll really blow his mind. Considering how...uhh...meticulous (Also See: Slow) he's been in truly understanding what's going on in the world, I am expecting that tweet to pop up sometime around Thanksgiving.
P.S. Jerry Rice's use of brackets might even be more head scratching than his denseness regarding racial issues.
