Slipknot’s Corey Taylor has joined the chorus of voices in the music industry who are speaking out on the Black Lives Matter versus All Lives Matter argument. In a new video posted, Taylor speaks out on the matter like many others have been by using the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of police officers.

The All Lives Matter movement is a response to Black Lives Matter, and many see it as a phrase filled very controversy.

“To me, it’s very simple.” Taylor said in the video (via NME). “We all matter. There’s a time and a place to talk about things like that. However, we are seeing that our black friends… You know, there’s a lot of violence going against them. So what we need to do, we need to do, is band together with them and say, yes, black lives do matter, because we all matter.

He further said, “And to fight for those black lives does not mean you’re saying anything against anybody else. You can back up ‘black lives matter’ and say that cops’ lives matter; it’s all the same thing. And you can have those different ideas in the same thought, and there’s nothing wrong with that, because we do all matter.”

This is not the first time that Taylor has spoken out on racism. He gave an interview following Phil Anselmo’s Nazi salute at Dimebash Festival this past February. In the interview, Taylor expressed that it is a “bigger problem than what happened that night,” by saying that Slipknot has a deep commitment to bringing together all fans in the metal community, regardless of their race.
