All lives matter, but the purpose of black lives matter is to draw attention to the fact that for many people of color, America is a police state. A police state in which they may be arrested or killed for any reason or no reason at all. Black lives matter points out white privilege which most whites take for granted because there is one law for whites and another law for people of color. Guns are used to intimidate people of color. Open carry by a person of color is justification for the police to shoot first and ask questions later. Open carry by a white person is justified by the second amendment and supported by the NRA. Until every life matters, guns will be used in the US to kill far too many innocent people.
