Issue 2 {Thread}: In the midst of all the calls to NOT say All Lives Matter in response to #BLM , why is it that we do exactly the opposite in terms of #FarmMurders ? The argument is: yes, all lives matter, BUT we are highlighting a very specific issue right now.
It is therefore insensitive to bring up #ALM in response to #BLM. So let's say we agree to this notion. Why, then, is it that when people express concern about #FarmMurders in South Africa the overwhelming response from activists and the Media is that All Murders Matter?
And that singling out the plight of farmers and farm workers is somehow morally reprehensible? I don't have a dog in either fight - I'm not black and I'm not a farmer. However, I do believe in consistency, and I don't like double standards and hypocrisy. So what's it going to be?
