A Sharp Look at our Society

In the newspaper an editorial asserts that the phrase "All lives matter" is a "morally offensive utterance." Someone should alert the Buddhists, who have for generations asserted that all sentient beings are important, and that all life is precious and worthy of respect. If we really held this belief, it would lead to treating all people equally regardless of race. Isn't that what we want? I don't know how others are reading it, but I take this phrase to mean "Let's look beyond our differences and figure out a way to value all life." But I guess it's politically incorrect to say so.

Does anyone else see anything wrong with this or is it just me?
