What is your argument? Stating this is something that a political group denies or accept is not an argument. Why do you think BLM is racist?

Side: No.

Sure is. It's a racist, hate group. They want dead cops and have told White people who came to help them to get at the back of the line.

You're welcome.

Side: Yes.

Can you clarify how you are comparing the long history of KKK of terrorism against a targeted group of people based on race to BLM which is an actual organization founded on the premise that police reform is badly needed to address things such as police brutality and misconduct, lack of accountability, and the disproportionate ways these issues have impacted people of color for centuries.

No. Even though the petition-like slogan behind this racist movement sounds reasonable such a bizarre idea will never catch on.

The high rate of BONGO on BONGO murders makes a mockery of this self-pitying plea.

Side: No.

Absolutely not. The term “Black Lives Matter” is a REMINDER, because it is seeming that they are not mattered in this world. In fact the term “all live Matter” is ignorant. It was a response to Black Lives Matter to make it seem like blm was saying “only blacks lives Matter” when in reality the meaning is “Black Lives Matter TOO”. All lives matter wasn’t made until after Black Lives Matter and if all lives Matter really cared about “all lives” then they should have a problem saying black Lives Matter because they would see black Lives are being mistreated currently and have been for YEARS. Blm is fighting for BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, and you guys aren’t supporting it because the people who were tearing stuff down?!?! (In fact, majority of blm protesters were peaceful and some non blm people purposely tore things down to make it look like blacks did it... including cops). I’d be fighting with my all if I weren’t given BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, that’s like saying “I know your entire race is being unjustly killed right now but you don’t have to yell and protest about it..” and that’s just IGNORANT. We should be fighting WITH them, most of us will never even have to experience it (unless you a tree a black person) and we still can’t even help them out?!?!? That’s insane. “Actions speak louder than words” so just saying All Lives Matter and doing nothing to help ALL LIVES is just very disappointing. All lives CANT Matter until Blacks Lives do, and other poc. All Black Lives Matter wants is to not be unjustly killed and be as equal as everyone else. That’s it. Be better, we can change this world.

No one is denying that black lives matter, we are just saying that in John 7:24, Yeshua said tpp judge not according to appearance, it's racist to judge by skin color, people need to affirm everyone, the riots need to stop yesterday, and Black Lives Matter Co Founders, are Self describing, Marxists. Any question, or do you need the number to the hiring line, for the local circuc?

Side: Yes.

If you’d look into it, lots of people are saying “black lives don’t matter” actually. It’s the same people that are saying “all lives matter” which proves that majority of the people saying ALM are just saying it to incite violence because they have nothing better to do clearly. Since you want to involve the bible so will I. If Yeshua said not to judge people according to skin color, then why are you saying black lives matter are the racists. The people who were being racist and discriminatory towards black lives before the term “black lives matter” was made were the racists then. Black lives matter was made to make society EQUAL and JUSTIFIED which was the complete opposite of what was (and is) happening to blacks in America. the term “black lives matter” is a reminder, so if something needs to be REMINDED to someone, it has to be shown that it was forgotten. So black Americans we’re trying to REMIND the world, especially America that they matter because it was SHOWN that they don’t (police brutality, systemic racism, unequally distributed paychecks, white privilege, etc). I’m sure you’ve heard the term “all lives can’t matter until black lives matter”. Black lives matter supporters want all lives to matter but you can’t just say all lives matter when the world isn’t acting like it?!?! As a fellow Christ believer, I’ll include a bible verse as well, "This is what the Lord says: Be fair-minded and just. Do what is right! Help those who have been robbed; rescue them from their oppressors. Quit your evil deeds! Do not mistreat foreigners, orphans, and widows. Stop murdering the innocent!" (Jeremiah 22:3). So the Lord wants us to help those who are oppressed, and right now, it’s black Americans (i understand everyone else has issues but this is a growing issue that everyone should want to be fixed and brought attention to). Also, not very christ-like to consider someone a clown instead of wanting to educate them. But no! I don’t need the number, I’ve got a great occupation and education! I recommend you save it in your contacts for later use though!

BLM does not have a creed or history of discriminating against another group of people based on race such as groups like the KKK.

Usually when people think that BLM is a racists group they don't actually understand how, when, and why the BLM Organization was founded. They also confuse the organization with random agitators that some media entertainment shows seek to magnify to support an agenda. It is also for some to accept that BLM is racists in order to deny or minimize that there is a history of authorities discriminating against people of color on individual level as well as systemic.

BLM defends against police brutality against all people while at the same time acknowledging that this is an issue that disproportionately effect black people, hence the name Black Lives Matter.

BLM isn't against all lives matter in the sense that life is precious, but when the expression All Live Matter is used against BLM causes it is again used minimize or deny that there is an issue particularly with people of color and law enforcement. For some people it is hard to believe that such institutions that have been generally upheld as noble and sacred can have a history of corruption and racism and still do currently.

When we have people storming Capitol Hill waving confederate flags then no, the idea behind Black Lives Matter is most certainly NOT racist, it's necessary.

Side: No.
