    Just a heads up that I'm keeping an eye on this comment thread, and I will be very unkind indeed to anyone who turns it into a flame war. If you want to discuss politics, please post on the forums (in Small Talk), or take it to private conversations. Thank you.

    You know, I was going to write a long winded comment about why I don't believe saying "All lives matter" isn't racist, but I realized that's likely just going to spawn a flame war and that's the last thing I want.

    All I'll say is I don't feel like we need to know this on a Pokemon site. I've seen like...one person who probably doesn't believe in it, and I'm not about to start a witch hunt over it. The major demographic on this site is teens/preteens and most feel this way anyways, including me. And most of the adults don't live in America and thus where it isn't a problem, or are fairly level headed and support this anyways. But you do you, I guess. You don't have to agree with what I'm saying, I'm just putting my opinion out there.

    This is beautiful! The world is extremely f'd up, and discrimination over one's skin color is humiliating. Personally, I definitely agree on the whole 'All lives matter' subject, as in it's accidental racism. Yes the title does make it seem like they care about every race, but it was created by white people trying to get attention saying that 'even white people have it bad to', instead of saying 'All lives actually matter' Tbh. The 'Black lives matter' movement is incredible, for the race has been looked down on for centuries. It's extremely important for the world to know their history, so we can move on and not repeat it.

    @Starry Phantump @SS-I Never Saying all lives matter is like having a straight pride parade. It is accidental racism, and here's why.
    Black Lives Matter is trying to highlight the racial discrimination when it comes to the government and the justice system. There is evidence that black lives matter less to the criminal justice system. Just look at all the police killings of unarmed black citizens. Although some may believe it, white citizens have it better. In the past. white people have never had to go through any hardships in american history. Black people have had to triumph over slavery and segregation. White people were the starting problem. Have you ever heard of the KKK? They would lynch and torture black people. The KKK still exists today. The victim who was killed in the Charlottesville, Virginia attack was a anti-white supremacist protester. They were killed because white supremacists were upset that a statue of a confederate general was taken down. A life was taken because of a statue. Black Lives Matter is pushing the point that all lives should be equal. All lives matter is taking attention away from this much needed protest. All Lives Matter is pushing toxic racism and making it harder for America to go through a positive change. But here's a great thing- you can stop the accidental racism right now. It's never too late to learn.

    I say "All Lives Matter!"

    It doesn't matter the color of your skin, your beliefs, or sexual preference! We're all human!

    We shouldn't hate on each other just because we're different! We should instead learn from each other, and see everything from anothers perspective!
