Default The Black Lives Matter movement

Mindful that the movement named "Black Lives Matter" does not represent everyone who is disgusted at George Floyd's murder, this is a separate thread specifically to discuss all things about that movement.

Please, let's be respectful to each other - it's okay to have different opinions.

Ok then, let's also be aware that many of the protesters don't represent BLM either, and that those protesters, many looters, and many of the violent thugs are just using Floyd's death to cause trouble for their own ends... All of which makes BLM look like the bad guys.

An exceptionally good video with lots of information together with statistics to back it, and including:
  • Open Society funding of BLM.
  • Open Society funding of Democratic mayors and governors ensuring their will be no opposition.
  • BLM donate button literally links to ActBlue, which is fundraiser slush fund for the DNC.
  • BLM wants to destroy the nuclear family yet this youtube very clearly blows the lid on the very strong relationship between black crime and deaths and fatherless parenting.
  • Bidens role in filling up the prisons with extremely high numbers of black people.
  • More black people getting killed as a direct result of these protests and BLM has said nothing about this.
  • Statistics that show that the overwhelming majority of black murders are carried out by black murderers. BLM has said nothing about this.
  • Welfare and it's impacts on black communities.
  • Systemic destruction of nuclear families.

The GoFundMe link goes via a YouTube page to a Charleston, SC group teaching 5-11 yo's to dress and act like gentlemen. Nothing about BLM or the DNC...

And if your link is in the video, I'm not stopping the video to review links.

As I said, the written word please....

No---'all' lives are not equally in danger for many reasons. However police brutality and prejudice is not acceptable regardless of the target.

''Black Pride' ---was a movement which seems to be less mentioned. All should be able to be proud of their 'roots'-----remember that programme?

So let's just take a look at your words again shall we?

And you seriously believe that to be a message that all lives are precious.
Not a diatribe in any sense, oh no.
