Controversy has continued to erupt as seemingly well intentioned people have posted social memes with the words “All Lives Matter”. It is generally believed that those people making the postings are oblivious to the fact that only select groups of people should be mentioned when it comes to lives mattering. A group of legislators have proposed that the government release a guideline list of lives that “matter” to remedy those mistakes.
“Look, we have spent a lot of time splitting ourselves up into separate groups, and demonizing each other, we can’t just have people going around willy nilly saying every life matters. It’s so very racist to lump us all together as human beings for goodness sakes”, said a legislator working on the list that asked to not be identified due to the sensitivity of his work.
The committee working on the list hopes to have it released by October so voters can make more informed race based voting decisions instead of worrying about distractions like the economy, jobs, the healthcare debacle, devastating trade agreements and undeclared wars.
