Do black lives matter?

That one's pretty straightforward:
Morality is largely a pragmatic construct. The question at hand almost always "would society function better or worse if people behaved in [x] manner?"
In the case of which lives matter, we all generally agree being murdered is a bad thing. So killing people is wrong in most cases. We generally agree that rodents are a nuisance, so their lives don't matter so much. Pet animals are in a middle ground because they provide us comfort and utility.

If you're wondering why humans come first: the simple answer is because WE'RE human.
yeah but morality and society is gay

It really depends on how your judging it.

In a cosmic sense? Fuck no, human life means nothing...

In terms of value relative to humans? Very little, like everyone else...

To quote Moonman: "They're worth less than fecal matter"

Alright to be serious yes Black lives do matter. ALL lives matter. Police brutality should be an issue that transcends race and all the other nonsense the media tries to divide everyone with. By framing it as a racial issue it prevents half the country from coming together on the issue thus preventing any attempt at really fixing the issue outside of B.S. sensitivity training courses and Nogs chimpingout every now and then.
It only prevents people 'coming together" if you lack empathy. It's a racial issue due to A). Media sensationalization (black death gets ratings) and B) the sordid history between law enforcement and African Americans (Jim Crow, the War on Drugs, etc.) Police brutality would transcend race if white people actually cared about the times when it happens to their race. Those deaths are used as a form of whataboutism to silence the concerns of others. Both sides ("Nogs" and 'White Devils") of the coin refuse to see the others' perspective.

There's an actual conversation to be had about the increased militarization, the quality of the training cops receive, ways to repair the damaged image of law enforcement in the US.

I never had any issues with black people ever, until they made me dislike them. Good job, BLM.
Congrats, you're just like the black people who stereotype whites as all being racist.

deep thought: does a mouse's life matter? if not, why does a human's life matter? what makes a human's life more valuable than a mouse's life? intelligence? if that's the case, stupid people's lives matter significantly less than a normal person's life and retard lives are worth no more than a monkey or dolphin's life.
It's not human intelligence that makes them matter more, it's genetic similarity.
