Is It Bad to Say ‘All lives matter’?

It’s a crazy crazy world…

The president of Smith College was bullied into apologizing after writing “All lives matter” in the subject line of an all-campus email last Friday.

In her email, President Kathleen McCartney used that subject line to kick off her email about the “struggle” and “hurt” the Smith community was experiencing following the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Mo. and New York. She also announced a new Chief Diversity Officer for the campus…

But despite the message, the email’s subject line set her campus on fire. McCartney was immediately criticized for using “All lives matter” instead of the Ferguson rallying cry of “Black Lives Matter.”
