All Lives Matter, and why that doesn’t really matter right now.

apple.news/A1IYIGPXiQJWux4tSHO2eNA

The ethical retort to Black Lives Matter, ie All Lives Matter, expresses an attitude that should be. It is an idealism. The issue is not that all lives do not matter. The issue is that when we look at what occurs through all social and economic sectors, black people, and people of color in general, are not mattering. Indeed, systemically, black lives are worth less than white lives. This is actuality.

The problem is in the color blindness which accompanies human idealism. This idealism is, In fact and actually, whiteness.

It is the deliberate act of turning ones view away from what is actually occurring toward the way things should be.

This reliance upon what should be is a way of avoiding that things are not what they should be, and relying upon the status quo as the “common senseway of getting us to where we should be. What this means most often is a return to what was.

In order for black lives to matter we have to stop repeating what was as an ethical goal.

On a more philosophical note: Hegel (but Western Philosophy in general) is the philosophy of systemic whiteness Because he asserts reason as something that every human being should have.

But, in actuality, there is no traversal across a common category. In other words: not all human beings have an ability to reason as the manner Hegel assumes of the common human being.

It is not that all humans can reason sensibly; it is that as we proceed, we do not know which ones will be able to, so we act as though everyone can and does.

Typically, modern humans project our ideas upon the world and judge it by our intension, Instead of encountering the world for what it actually is and adjusting our view accordingly.
