The movement is trying to prove that all of our lives should be equal not one life is better than the

Some people say that “All Lives Matter”, which is true because life is a precious thing. But when it comes to interacting with police officers, “Black Lives Matter”, black lives are in danger during interaction with the police because society treats black people different from other races.
