Essay Topic: "The #BlackLivesMatter movement was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman. Zimmerman was acquitted. Many have criticized the #BlackLivesMatter movement for focusing on specific injustices done to African Americans, stating instead there should be an #AllLivesMatter movement.
If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive, would he argue that blacks should focus on the #AllLivesMatter movement to focus more globally and generally on all lives, or would he support the #BlackLivesMatter movement to focus more on black lives.
Please discuss why or why not."
