Why didn't conservatives say "All Lives Matter" before the BLM movement?

    Because they exclude born lives.

    They're mad because they didn't think of it first.

    We really don't care all that much about race. A lot of conservatives didn't have any need to talk about it.

    Because we didn't think it needed to be said. We didn't think Black lives matter needed to be said either. Black organizations and leaders like Al I'm a huge liar Sharpton have decided to divide themselves. Fact is BLM doesn't care about ALL Black lives, either. It only cares about the 2% of Black lives taken by the police. The other 98% that are taken by other Black lives, they couldn't care less about--even when they are babies.

    because they have no idea what to say until something big happens

    Long story short:  because they are RE-active, not PRO-active...  Also, because of who the "Conservatives" co-opted in recent years.  (Even after Bush II).

    Burn/Loot/Murder doesn't say that, sparky.  Why should anyone say the obvious?

    Because we thought it was obvious. I guess not though.

    Because there was no need too. "Black lives matter" exposed an ignorance by those who chanted it that somehow, Black lives didn't matter to police, odd when 40% of police are minorities. "All lives matter" is a response to put some rationality to that! 

    In 2019, 10 unarmed Blacks were killed by police and 20 unarmed Whites were. This when there are around 600 arrests a day with 2 of those turning violent to one degree or another.

    Everyone knew it was true back then

    No need to say what everyone already knows.  The racist BLM movement has set back race relations 50 years in this country
