Certainly they did to black people, to God, and to the few supportive non-blacks in the society. But not to the oppressors. Pretty much the same as today.

During apartheid, which began by the Dutch who separated fighting gangs in cities in S.Africa, it was because all lives mattered to the Dutch. Later on, the rules were changed to suit the leader of the day, many of whom were black leaders picking fights politically with their black neighbors.

Are you going to go through every era in US history and ask if black lives mattered? and if so, why?

Human life has always had value. Whether or not people living at a specific point in history were willing to recognise that is another question. On a personal note, I think that people who post anonymously matter far less than people who don't.

If you mean the organization "BLM", no it didn't exist then.
