The All Lives Matter movement does exactly what it says it does; it stands for all life. In 2016, American football player Richard Sherman, who is African American, supported the All Lives Matter message, saying, "I stand by what I said that All Lives Matter and that we are human beings." He wanted African Americans to be "treated like human beings" and did not want innocent police officers being killed. In June 2015, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced severe backlash after using the phrase "all lives matter" at an African-American church in Missouri during her presidential campaign. Clinton has proven herself in the eyes of the African American community, which shows that she should have been credited and not backlashed for saying the phrase "All Lives Matter".
