WHAT IT MEANS: All lives matter, Wendell Griffen explains.
  • WHAT IT MEANS: All lives matter, Wendell Griffen explains.
Another few words from Judge Wendell Griffen growing from the controversy over the sale of Black Lives Matter T-shirts at the state black history museum — removed by the administration and restored after protests from Griffen and others stirred by a story in the Arkansas Times:

Writes Griffen, in part:

All lives matter.

Black people live.

Therefore, Black Lives Matter!
To say “Black Lives Matter” does not mean that only Black Lives Matter.

To say “Black Lives Matter” does not mean Black Lives Matter more than other lives.

To say "Black Lives Matter" means, rather, that Black Lives Matter also!

It is important to affirm that Black Lives Matter because U.S. history shows how official threats, abuses, and destruction of black lives have occurred often, systematically, and inexcusably.
