Do Black Lives Matter or do All Lives Matter? That question has been the cause of many debates and conversations across America recently. The All Lives Matter response was created to criticize the Black Lives Matter Movement and operates under the assumption that the movement isn't needed in America because it is a post racial society. This thesis reviews race theories, racial formation in the United States and racist ideology in the pre- and post-Civil Rights era in order to show why the Black Lives Matter Movement is needed. It looks at the influence colorblindness has on the United States Criminal Justice System and the All Lives Matter response. Finally, this thesis explains why the Black Lives Matter Movement is important and suggest next steps that can be taken by the Black Lives Matter Movement to reach its goal of social justice for black lives.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, University of Bremen, course: Concepts of Race and Racism, language: English, abstract: When we look at the history of African-American protest, two of the most prevalent issues are racial profiling and institutional brutality. And when the topics of racial profiling and institutional abuse of power, namely police brutality, are discussed, two facts become abundantly clear: (1) The two are closely related. The tendency of police in the United States to show a bias towards specific groups and the even more disturbing tendency of police officers to use unnecessary physical force against those specific groups unfortunately tend to go hand in hand. (2) The issues are not as recent as some would think, with the major evidence of this being the ubiquity of said matters in popular African-American media culture throughout history. However, it is important to acknowledge one fact: Movements and reactions to fight racial profiling and police brutality against African-Americans have become increasingly strong with activist groups having managed to use popular media to their advantage to spread a message of awareness and resistance. The fact that almost all modern liberal news providers have sections for the coverage of issues related solely to African-Americans proves that there has been a surge in media interest in the matter as well as the movements which are created as a counterculture to the popular zeitgeist of apathy and obedience to a system which still promotes institutional racism and shows a terrifying tendency to systematically disregard the lives of African-Americans. Music has always played a major role in the fight against racial bias, especially covering issues of racial profiling and police brutality. From Jazz to Rap music, African-American musicians have, for many years, chosen to use music as a way to challenge political and institutional systems and have been successful in spread their message of discontentment and anger. The discontentment is directed not only at a system which expects obedience from groups it chooses to disregard and systemically prejudge, but also at one which discourages support for their cause. Apart from entertaining people, music is often used as a tool to help people either see the misrepresentation of the African-American community and to encourage changes or to help people who are at odds with their own identity, see that they are, in fact, being misrepresented and prejudged and how to go about finding healthy ways of dealing with those feelings and fighting the issue.

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) hashtag is now a robust feature of the Twitter landscape. With millions of Twitter mentions since 2013, the Black Lives Matter hashtag eventually grew into a top 10 trending topic across 2015. While claims of origin are easily substantiated, the idea that user behavior on Twitter built this movement has not yet been closely investigated. Social sharing of emotion and gratification of self expression scholarship inform this research. Tweets from 2015 were used to identify the most prominent themes and names shared under the BLM hashtag. A grounded theoretical approach also investigates how tone and the presence of critics impacts the attitudes represented on Twitter. This case study aims to reveal what themes and events inspire Twitter users to generate content about racial justice. Measures of tone and analysis of how dominant attitudes can shift over time provide insights for future activists. In a content analysis of 1,001 tweets spanning an 11-month period, criticism was the third most prominent theme in the data set (15%). Regarding tone, only 65% of tweets using the BLM hashtag voiced support for the movement and levels of support fluctuated throughout the year. Opponents of BLM were most vocal during the month of August (27.5%) and shared the least during March (6.6%) of 2015.
