Matt Damon apologises for diversity in film gaffe | Film | The Guardian
“Many white men are taught to believe that they can tell any story well that they choose to tell. Whiteness, particularly white maleness, is situated as a marker of universality. The experiences of people of colour are marked as too particular to be universal. The idea that our experiences of race and gender shape and inform how we perceive narratives and how we tell stories, makes many, many people uncomfortable.”

ELI5: Why is it so controversial when someone says "All Lives Matter" instead of "Black Lives Matter"? : explainlikeimfive
Imagine that you're sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don't get any. So you say "I should get my fair share." And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, "everyone should get their fair share." Now, that's a wonderful sentiment -- indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad's smart-ass comment just dismissed you and didn't solve the problem that you still haven't gotten any!

The problem is that the statement "I should get my fair share" had an implicit "too" at the end: "I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else." But your dad's response treated your statement as though you meant "only I should get my fair share", which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that "everyone should get their fair share," while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out.

That's the situation of the "black lives matter" movement. Culture, laws, the arts, religion, and everyone else repeatedly suggest that all lives should matter. Clearly, that message already abounds in our society.

Trump’s Ugly Flag Football Game - POLITICO Magazine
If you love liberty and free thinking, the NFL protests should be received as a blessing. The alternative that Trump proposes, compulsory patriotism, all but defines totalitarianism, as the Supreme Court eloquently expressed in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, a landmark case about whether a school can compel students to pledge allegiance to the flag.

In 1943, in the violent throes of the global struggle against fascism, Justice Robert Jackson wrote for the court: “To believe that patriotism will not flourish if patriotic ceremonies are voluntary and spontaneous, instead of a compulsory routine, is to make an unflattering estimate of the appeal of our institutions to free minds.”

As for those who would say today that the kneelers are offending a sacred American symbol, Jackson had words for them, too. “Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much,” he wrote. “That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order.”
