Most people would definitely agree that all lives do matter. Today in our society, a really big discussion is if all lives matter, do black lives matter, as well? Many people are left to wonder if black lives are included because there are so many incidents where white police officers are killing innocent black lives. Most of the police officers who killed African-Americans while on duty haven’t been charged with murder or found guilty of any crime.

There have been many things that people have done to try to resolve this conflict such as holding protests. There have been many peaceful protests in regards to this issue. However many of those protests transpired into violent riots, as was the case in Baltimore, Maryland and in Ferguson, Missouri. Perhaps one day the world we live in will be a safe place where there aren’t police shooting or violence in communities. We will just have to wait and see if the these conflicts get resolved.
