POLL: African Americans Don’t Support ‘Black Lives Matter,’ Prefer to Say ‘ALL Lives Matter’ Instead

A new poll is just out that is quite interesting. The question was asked of African Americans if they support the phrase “black lives matter” or if they support the phrase “all lives matter.” Turns out a large number of American blacks don’t really think saying “black lives matter” is the best idea.

The new Rasmussen poll asked blacks if they think “black lives matter” is the right way to phrase their feelings or if they’d rather say “all lives matter.” Well apparently most feel “black lives matter” is way too harsh.

Most Americans, and especially African-Americans, believe that the phrase “all lives matter” is much close to their view than the narrow “black lives matter,” the movement started after a white Ferguson, Mo., cop shot a black man to death, according to a new poll.

A survey from Rasmussen Reports found that blacks, by a margin of two to one, say “all lives matter” is closer to their view. Some 64 percent chose “all lives matter,” to 31 percent for “black lives matter,” said the poll that asked: “Which statement is closest to your own?”

…Overall, when asked which statement is closest to their own views, 78 percent of likely U.S. voters say all lives matter.

I don’t know about you but this makes me feel a bit better about this whole “black lives matter” sentiment.
