While interviewing actor Terry Crews on Monday, Don Lemon of CNN said the Black Lives Matter movement was not about “all black lives matter." He said the movement is primarily focused on police brutality.
The interview came as a result of Crew making some comments about the Black Lives Matters movement that triggered the Left.
“The Black Lives Matter movement was started because it was talking about police brutality,” Lemon said, per Daily Wire. “If you want an all black lives matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities, including, you know, black communities, then, start that movement with that name. But that’s not what Black Lives Matter is about. It’s not an all encompassing [movement].”
“So if you are talking about — if someone started a movement that said cancer matters,” Lemon continued. “And then, someone comes and says why aren’t you talking about HIV? It’s not the same thing. We’re talking about cancer. So the Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice, in that manner. Not about what’s happening in black neighborhoods.”
Crews countered by pointing out that “when you look at the organization, police brutality is not the only thing they are talking about.”

Growing increasingly indignant, Lemon tells Crews that BLM should NOT care about black-on-black crime since it's not in their mission, and tells his guest to start that organization himself. He also compared it to saying "cancer matters" and people asking 'what about HIV?' pic.twitter.com/g6xsaqKOKn

Ben Shapiro pointed out the lunacy in Lemon's statement that "Black Lives Matter" does not actually mean "all black lives matter."
So apparently we cannot point out that black lives taken by those who are not cops matter, even though those deaths are far more common. Because it's all about police brutality. But it's not -- the BLM rubric has come to include everything from removing statues to reparations.

More complete insanity from the left. At this point, it's par for the course.
