Black Lives Matter is like pie

So says former Fox News personality and current conservative advocate Glenn Beck. While Beck stops short of supporting the movement, his analogy captures the issue fairly well. BLM is about not getting pie.

Republicans have struggled with BLM. The most prominent response by conservatives to BLM seems to be that “All Lives Matter”. As if “Black Lives Matter” accidentally omitted the “only”. But BLM isn’t about getting more pie, it’s about getting any pie.

It’s not like Republican supporters are incapable of understanding this distinction or what BLM is actually trying to accomplish. Many simply don’t know much about it. But both sides need to do a better job in conveying the message.

It’s about pie.
