Girlfriend of Slain Black Man: ‘All Lives Matter.’

The girlfriend of Philando Castile, the black man shot dead by police during a traffic stop that was broadcast live on Facebook, has publicly pleaded for people not to use the issue to stoke racial division, telling reporters today, “all lives matter”.

During a tearful explanation of what happened during the incident, which has garnered global attention, Diamond ‘Lavish’ Reynolds urged all races to unite.

“Everyone will see that this was a very detrimental situation….to everybody in this community, everybody in this world, not just blacks, not just whites, not just Asians but everyone, this affected everyone,” said Reynolds.

“Not black lives matter – all lives matter – every single life out here matters, no matter the color, the race, the nationality, we all deserve to be heard,” she added.

Reynolds’ use of the phrase “all lives matter” is interesting given that ‘Black Lives Matter’ leaders have repeatedly claimed that the term represents a disparaging racial remark.

Back in February, Black Lives Matter co-founder Marissa Jenae Johnson told Fox News’ John Roberts that the phrase “all lives matter” is a “new racial slur.”

Leftist commentators have also repeatedly insisted that saying “all lives matter” is racist. Just today, Advocate.com writer Rachel Lewis asserted that, “when you say #AllLivesMatter, whether you mean to or not, you’re being racist.”

If saying “all lives matter” is racist, then the black woman who is currently garnering global sympathy over what happened to her black boyfriend at the hands of police is a racist.

What an excellent perspective and response on Diamond’s part. Despite her devastating loss, she has the vision and fortitude to keep her head screwed on straight for the good of the entire US populace.

I don’t know the guilt or innocence of the police or her boyfriend here. Time will tell. But if more people would be like Diamond, racial tensions, rioting and untimely deaths would be far less common.

She might best serve her country in the future by giving a private tutorial to Obama and a public one to the nation on how to promote racial harmony, rather than strife.

God bless her (though he most likely already has).
