  • All lives matter.

    Jennifer Lopez should not be under fire for these comments. The African American community seems a bit prejudiced to me for saying #BlackLivesMatter. How about Whites, Asians, Latinos; the many that live and have immigrated to this country? It's time to stop thinking about this issue racially, and start thinking about it as one community.

  • All Lives Do Matter

    Jennifer Lopez was not wrong to say that all lives matter. If people are interested in reducing the number of police shootings, then they should be advocating that for all people - not just one race. Saying that Black Lives Matter implies that black lives matter more than other lives, which is divisive and not helpful to their cause.

  • Agree, the first amendment gives you the right to say all lives matter

    The first amendment gives you the right to say whatever you like as long as you are not directly endangering anyone else. So, yes people of any race can say all lives matter. The critics of Jennifer Lopez also enjoys this first amendment right to criticize her for making such statements. The first amendment does not protect Jennifer Lopez from the repercussions of her statements, just the right to say them.

  • Yes, in deed all lives matter/

    There was nothing wrong with Jenifer Lopez saying all lives matter. Black lives matters and so do any other life. It may seen anti-black for one to say that other lives matter but if you look at it from a wider perspectives, there is nothing anti-black about it. There would have been more criticism if the same sentiments came from a white fellow.

  • People need to understand that Black Lives Matter deals with a circumstance that has been in the Black community for many decades.

    Only difference is that now we can see it on video, cellphone recordings etc...

    Did people care to write all lives matter, 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago, 40 years ago? When the Black community had to go trough police brutality and police harassment.
