I was just wondering because I don't support them nor do I want to. I don't know but when I see BLM I want to scream and curse sometimes. But I ignore it and keep it to myself. I understand that my race is going through some struggles pertaining to their race but it means nothing to me anymore. Probably because most African-Americans are racist and hypocritical and full of shame. Luckily, not all of them are like this and some people know that their race is like this. I don't support BLM or WLM or anything else because it is all pointless bullshit in my opinion. I am not racist towards my kind I am just disappointed in them. Not that they would care about how I feel. I guess I am at the point where "to hell with this and what about human lives mattering" even though I can care less about that too. I know that I am coming off as bitter and probably not making sense, but I felt like sharing this.

Maybe I am ignorant of things but I can't help feeling this way and I pretty secret to the whole thing. So, as an African-American should I be for BLM or not or do whatever you want.

This is as silly a question as if I made a topic asking if I should support the Aryan Brotherhood because I am "white".

Having to support something BECAUSE you are a certain race is racism through thought control. The fact that you don't automatically support it because you are "suppose to" means you are a freeman and your mind belongs to no one but yourself. Keep questioning and thinking for yourself it will get you far in this world.

There are many blacks that don't support or even care for BLM because they are just black Americans being American. Being black isn't even a concern for them because they are successful based on merits not skin color. Some even have recognized that they are being controlled by being told what they should and shouldn't support because they are black, see Candance Owens: https://twitter.com/realcandaceo what a smart beautiful woman.

Personally I support #americanlivesmatter because AMERICA FUCK YEAH!

I'm disappointed in the human race myself, but if you don't feel a connection to any sort of group, whatever they are representing you don't have to follow them. well unless you're trapped in some situation that you must, then you have no other choice. you then begin to play a catch 22, you have to be develop a love/hate indifference.

Same here. I rather support American lives than BLM and I am not really the supporting type. I mean it depends on the situation. I knew it was silly but I needed to ask it.

A better person for it? Are you saying that I would fit right in there?

There will always be a gap between the movement and the ideals. I think it is entirely fine to not support the movement (because as with any movement, it brings a lot of baggage). However, I think the ideal of reducing police violence and bias against black individuals should be largely supported, especially if you are someone who has come from a community affected by such things.

For me it would be A(all)L(lives)M(matter.

For myself, race / skin color / ethnicity / or anything else that is thought of as being different from others doesn't affect how I am towards anyone.

I only go with my feelings on how anyone acts.

With my mixed heritage of Celtic, Choctaw and Cherokee I should have a high dislike for Anglos, but I wasn't raised that way. I accept people for how they are, not what they are.

I support the message, I just don’t support the organization because I’m a conservative independent.

I see you as one of us, we're Anime Nerd, and Role playing games nerd! :p Doesn't matter if you're green, purple, pink, black, white, grey... Just because you have same skin color as other doesn't mean you have to be like them, that like them looking at you and thinking should they start watching Anime or write stories :p.

Each of us are different base by how we were raise and thing we enjoy doing.. Self-Love...do thing you like doing.. I never understood why people do negative thing that lead short hateful life.. >.<

Yes, Yes Qualeshia I'm Souther and I don't allow love and compassion! :p That because I don't want you all to experience the true meaning of pain! :p j/k

Don't let it bother you Qualeshia.

No is the answer, as you are not obligated to support any group/organization you do not agree with. I would not want to be asked to support a group for the reason of similar melanin levels, though interesting that I have heard such comments when I was a child in regard to music or movies.
