If you say, “All Lives Matter,” to a white liberal, they’re likely to call you racist.
But say it to an African-American person? It’s likely what they’d prefer to hear.
A new poll by Rasmussen asked Americans, “What statement is closest to your own?” and gave them the choice of “Black Lives Matter” or “All Lives Matter.”
