I don't understand why #blacklivesmatter, #alllivesmatter, and #bluelivesmatter must be combatant movements. Despite possible negative motivations in inception, the foundations of all the movements seem like they come from the similar places. A nice compromise would be to come together in a #livesmatter movement. At a rally people could have signs with whatever specific movement they want. Everyone can speak. Everyone will be heard. Everyone is on the same side, and they would develop respect and compassion towards other movements organically. People will have different specific goals within #livesmatter but the overall goal will be the same: to stop purposeless death and violence.
