“No, #NotAllLivesMatter. It’s just not true...#AllLivesMatter denies the discrepancy between condemning President Obama’s remarks regarding Trayvon Martin as 'divisive' and 'race-baiting' while also praising presidential candidate Donald Trump’s remarks on Mexicans and Latinos as 'refreshing,' 'honest' or 'telling it like it is.'” - - Morris O'Kelly (The Mo'Kelly Show)

PITTSBURGH (July 31, 2015) – The “Get To The Point” Panel from this episode of “NightTalk: Get To The Point” on the Pittsburgh Cable News Channel chats with political commentator and social activist Lenny McAllister about why the hashtag slogan #BlackLivesMatter has more significance for a social movement than the upstart response on social media, #AllLivesMatter. A quote written by BBC political analyst and KFI radio host Morris O’Kelly (“The Mo’Kelly Show”) is featured as an initial point of discussion for dialogue during the ongoing conversation from the July 31 show.

Pitt’s professor Waverly Duck (author, “No Way Out: Precarious Living in the Shadow of Poverty and Drug Dealing”), community activist and motivational speaker Leon Ford, Jr (www.LeonFordSpeaks.com), and the Nation of Islam’s Minister Victor Muhammad (Mosque #22, Pittsburgh) drive the conversation with McAllister to discuss the development of the movement from its social media beginnings to its ongoing impact on local, state, and national politics as well as policy discussions during these segments aired on PCNC.
