Laila Ali Believes “All Lives Matter”

Laila Ali is the latest A-lister to chime in on police brutality. The famous daughter of Muhammad Ali and retired boxing champ admits that she isn’t vocal publicly about her feelings about the black lives matter movement and part of her hesitancy is because of how some of her sponsors may react. Bossip reports, that during a recent interview, she says

By me not posting, it doesn’t mean that black lives don’t matter. To me, it’s obvious that black lives matter. And then… I’m like, what is posting going to do? What is speaking out going to do? “Yes, black lives matter. Yes, white lives matter, asian lives matter. All lives matter. And that’s kind of what my focus is.

But it’s hard because, you know, you’ve got sponsors and you’ve got this and you’ve got that. And you don’t want to step on anybody’s toes. And you’re trying to be politically correct, but at the same time trying to uplift your people.

Do you agree or disagree with Laila’s comments on All Lives Matter?
