I tried to explain this to a former radio guy in Toronto yesterday. In isolation, saying "all lives matter" seems like the least controversial statement possible. Saying it in response to the current context is another story though. Despite the best efforts of myself and many others to explain this, he came away offended and upset. I can't help him and I'm only happy he's a *former* radio guy and not a current one, or he'd be boned, too.
Napear didn't exactly make these comments in a vacuum. Check out what he said during the whole Donald Sterling controversy. At worst he is a bigot, at best he is totally fucking clueless.
