• Witness: Sen. Tim Scott: If ‘All Lives Matter’ Offends You, That’s Your Problem

    Senator Tim Scott said  Thursday night that if people are honestly offended by him or anyone else saying “all lives matter,” that’s their problem.

    “If it causes offense that I say that ‘all lives matter’ — black lives, white lives, police officers, jurists, all of us, even politicians, all of our lives matter — if that is somehow offensive to someone, that’s their issue, not mine,” he told CNN’s Brianna Keilar on CNN’s “The Situation Room.”

    He deplored the “regression in race relations” over the past few years and said people offended by messages of unity need to “look into their own hearts and figure out why that is.”

    Scott, South Carolina’s first black senator since Reconstruction, said that racism has historically been a problem in the U.S. but unity is required for moving forward.
