This issue is complicated by impostors who are now being recognized as the real; the white supremacists is creating fake BLM accounts on Twitter and the press are giving all attention to the new BLM from the white supremacists while negating the original BLM. The U.S. police and media are often biased toward the white elites because the white people have the ownership, wealth, and connection for economic investment. Despite this bias toward white people, the white supremacists often accuse the police and press for being pro-black just because they do give enough support for the white supremacists who depend on false information, impersonation, hacking, stereotypes, and magical girl logic to gain political support.
I need to explain some facts because the white supremacist are still covering some facts with trolls in the hope that their opposition will get too tired to argue back. There is actually no proof that the BLM are doing what the right-wing are claiming that they are doing; the shooting against polices are not proven to have connection to BLM. I found some irony here: first, the white supremacists (in their fake left-wing accounts) claim that the black activists should not defend themselves with guns because that will 'give them a twisted sense of pride and make them no different from their oppressors'; now, the white supremacists are trying to imitate a 'black' terrorists that may not even exist.

i can't say i agree with the current movement. Although i support the fundamental idea that gave birth to the movement, namely that individuals should be treated fairly regardless of their identity, the movement doesn't seem to accomplish much that can be considered positive. yes, black lives do matter, and things should be done to prevent the death of legitimately innocent black civilians, but vandalizing someone else's property (1), attacking people's cars (2), and blocking freeway (3) is not the way to spread that idea.
There was actually a study that refutes the claim by BLM activists that police intentionally target the black (4)


We find [instead] that blacks are 23.8 percent less likely to be shot at by police officers relative to whites….


but that study doesn't seem to matter - anyone who disagrees or otherwise points flaws in the movement are automatically labeled "white supremacist" and "racist". now, there were legitimate cases of police overstepping their line of duty, but should we really blame the whole police taskforce over the actions of a few? Of course not.

Ultimately, we're but dust in the universe. We can try anything and everything, but ultimately the universe will not care.
rather than #blacklivesmatter or #alllivesmatter, it's #nolivesmatter - at least in the grand scheme of things.
