Just stay within the law and we'll be fine. Not much more to it than that.

They're certainly not entitled to vandalising property just because they're an "oppressed" minority group. They ought to try peaceful protests instead.

You know, today we learn about the civil rights movement in the 1960s and MLK and all that in history class, and most people think that is how you should protest. Non-violence and all that. But the irony is if you go to a library in the south and dig up the old newspaper articles from the actual era MLK lived in, you will see that at the time white people were outraged and offened by the civil rights movement, even more than the outrage at BLM today. "Outside Agitators", "People from out of town coming to cause trouble", "civil disturbance in downtown people are advised to stay out", "N***** riot", etc, etc.

There is no right way for black people (or muslims) to protest. You know the people cheering on the white terrorists armed with bullet proof vests and rifles who take over federal governement buildings while threatening to kill the police? And the people cheering on the fools outside abortion clinics shouting abuse and threatening pregnant women all day and occasionally bombing and massacreing doctors and nurses? And the people voting to deny health care (Affordable Care Act, Planned Parenthood, etc) to the poor while supporting conmen selling sugar pills at $49.95 a bottle? They are the people calling BLM violent.

*On an unrelated note, I don't actually agree with BLM's assertion that black people being shot by the police is a big racist problem, but that's a matter of interpreting statistics one way or the other. I certainly believe they have the right to protest and voice their concerns. You know, freedom of speech and democracy and all that, yeah?

Peaceful, legal, ARMED protests.



If you're going to commit yourself to a cause, may as well do it the right way instead of smashing shit and throwing rocks.

I'm Black.

Yeah that's right I love chicken, hip hop and most of all BIG BOOT...boots. Big boots.

And I'll be entirely honest with you. The #BlackLivesMatter movement is a steaming pile of nonsensical rubbish.
Black Lives Matter cares much more about the very infrequent (although completely immoral and unfair) homicides of innocent unarmed Black people by police, than the significantly more concerning issue of Black on Black violence and INTERNALISED HATE.
The fact that gang culture is promoted when ultimately all it leads to is mindless unnecessary deaths and adding to mass incarceration.
Of course I don't believe we're Super Predators like Hillary says but Black Lives Matter seems to condone such actions.
Violence and destruction in protest will do nothing to aid our cause and will only justify such false proclamations and allow us to fall into a bottomless abyss of discrimination.

BLACK LIVES MATTER SHOULD BE ABOUT SORTING OUT BLACK COMMUNITIES NOT BLAMING POLICE.
If these "protesters" (rioters and in cases terrorists) truly believe that "Black Lives Matter" then they wouldn't be so ignorant to follow a brainwashed crowd thus not accepting any kind of responsibility and actually try to ACHIEVE REFORM.
Black Lives Matter, so stop wasting yours rotting in hoods and actually do something productive with your lives.
Black Lives Matter, so stop ending each others and condoning such actions as being acceptable.
START FIXING YOURSELVES and you will be much more likely to defeat racism.
You will appear more civilised and deserving. You will be taken more seriously.
I'm sure MLK Jr. and other inspiring protesters of the Civil Rights movement would be disgraced with what our movements have become.

Lastly, I will leave a 2Pac quote that hits me hard.

Is it the "White Man" you should fear? Or is it yourselves that you should fix...?

According to a good portion of their fellow Americans: Quietly, somewhere else, where they don't have to see or hear them.

So, business as usual~




Cool Story Bro.

Luckily for everyone involved the melanin content of your skin doesn't automatically make you an expert.

Lmao bro I wasn't boasting the fact that I'm Black. I'm stating it so you understand my position in all of this. I'm "supposed" to support BLM but I don't... I feel as though that is important. I also don't believe myself to be an expert in this area at all. I actually desire to learn so much more about this topic. I'm just a 15 year old kid peacefully expressing my opinions and views. And "Luckily for everyone"? Are you implying that what I'm saying is complete nonsense? Are you against reform?

If you don't believe you are an expert, do not make directives or proclamations on a subject you willingly admit you don't fully understand.

Never should white people tell POC how to protest.. BLM Kapernick MLK Malcolm X etc etc etc.. In every instance white people said no not like that.. The question should be how scared of the future are you, knowing your time is almost up..
