"All lives matter," generally speaking an obvious truth even if banal, has nonetheless been deemed by Black Lives Matter to be racist. I kind of get their point, which is that black lives matter, too, and so pointing out the obvious, general truth that all lives matter misses the point. Fine (even if dismissing obvious, general truths is not such a good idea). Then, the comeback is that "Blue lives matter." Well, sure,... but that ain't workin'. That just sets up a tit-for-tat us against them.
 
Is it not time for the BLM movement to take it to the next, fully forthright ethical level, indeed, not by dismissing the obvious, general truth that all lives matter but by combining it with the idea that black lives matter, and advocating for the position that "ALL black lives matter"??? #AllBlackLivesMatter
 
How can one make the "ALL Black Lives Matter" movement happen??? Well, try to incorporate in the movement's platform and protest signage and rhetoric some information and photos of these black people who have died trying to do good ...

... the refrain "black lives matter" is just used by antifa! For them, racism, no less George Floyd, is NOT what this is about.

Oh, and no arrests. Probably never will be...

 
... OR, MOREOVER, these black people who have been dying en masse, which would be more indicative of "systemic or institutional racism", insofar as it exists, than the 10 unarmed black people whose lives ended at the hands of police in 2019 (this is the Memorial Day weekend leading into the Floyd incident) ...
 
At least 50 people were shot in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend. The next day, another 28 were shot, including a 5-year-old girl standing with her family. TEN DEAD!
 
A little, FIVE-YEAR-OLD girl! For God's sake, you want support for a movement that advocates for raising awareness about the (systematic/incessant) loss of black lives in America,... alongside George Floyd's and Amaud Arbery's faces and stories, get the faces and stories of this little girl and these TEN black people who lost their lives in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend as well as David Dorn's and Dave Patrick Underwood's out there! Then, you have a wholistic movement that a whole country (and not just opportunistic,... Marxist antifa members, wealthy athletes and entertainers, and privileged academics, media pundits and politicians) can get behind!

Cannot take a joke to which there was even a somewhat slightly self-deprecating aspect, mind you? Ugh... Sorry.  
 

 
Actually,my comment was made before your joke yesterday. I did infact appreciate the jesting in your text.

... in a scenario that seems plausible.
 
I will go first...
 
I wish the Chiefs would go make an offer to the 49ers and pluck Matt Breida off their roster.  Breida on the Chiefs would be... DELISH!  In that offense, he would give defensive coordinators nightmares -- with the speed of his slashing and cutting -- the likes of which would put Freddie Krueger to shame!

Philip Rivers now at the helm of a pretty good Colts' offense and good team overall. Is he the missing piece? Can he get them over the top? Or, is his arm really shot as it often seemed last season?

 
Rivers just looked awful last year.   Not sure what the Colts are thinking, especially at 25 million.  
 
I still think the Colts will trade Brissett to the Pats.

The sky really is falling this offseason, and there may not even be a season for all this fallout to even matter.  Maybe that is why it is all happening...
 
At any rate, it is crazy how fast the fall from grace happened for Gurley.  Now the question is...  Is he/Can he be the same player he was from a couple years ago?  I do not know...

Yeah, but you put Prater in as your drop for BOTH rounds. It is (well) after kickoff now and no longer really appropriate for you to now tell me who you want dropped in the second round. As such, you will only get one free-agent this week. Sorry, bro.

Whoops.....

Favorite holiday of the year even if my beloved Hawaii is not the ideal place to celebrate it.  That said, I am thankful to Hawaii for serving as the home for my family for, all in all, over a decade now.
 
(I am also thankful to Kenny Golladay for his performance here during the first game. )
