Fact is there is no fact in that post.

And that's a fact.

Ummmm...No...

Quote:
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people. BLM regularly holds protests against police killings of black people and broader issues of racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

In 2013, the movement began with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin. Black Lives Matter became nationally recognized for its street demonstrations following the 2014 deaths of two African Americans: Michael Brown, resulting in protests and unrest in Ferguson, and Eric Garner in New York City.

I should have said in response to racism, It is still in response.

While they claim it is in response to racism, they would do well to focus on the major causes for the problems in the black community as that would go much further in saving young black people from untimely deaths than attacking a perceived racism issue with Law Enforcement.

If they want to work to end racism, they should start with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson who have created an industry out of it.

When non-blacks presume to know how to fix a black community issue, I would think it's a bit insulting to the black community, to be told they don't know how to handle it. Lashing out at non-black community people isn't going to fix the problem.

Yes, there have been some questionable LEO shootings, and someone is not going to like the outcome, but as with Sharpton and Jackson, they incite the black communities to act out based on their skin color.

I don't know if you meant it this way, but I will point out that I did not attempt to identify any problems in the black community nor did I offer any solutions. I simply stated that they would have more success if they looked inward instead of looking at Law Enforcement.

Exactly.

No, I know you did not, I was agreeing with your post, not arguing it. I got distracted (by work, lol), and my wording may have been off, apologies.

I feel there is more stress on the black communities from supposed 'outside influences trying to do good'... how many times does one need to hear that they are incapable of helping themselves, before they start believing it?

You have this unique ability to read into someone's post things that where never said nor implied. If you have such insight as to what I was attempting to convey, could elaborate on how you came to that conclusion? Are are you just being a typical troll?
