First of all who the hell made this topic ? You talk as if African-Americans are the only people who protest. They have been many protest as of late and no just because of #BLM. Any person can protest something, hell even though I don't agree with everything people do people have the right to peacefully gather and demonstrate. Anyways, if you're not African-American don't speak for them, you have no idea what it could be like to be oppressed. Check your privilege folks

"Check your privilege," that's a crass remark. White people aren't "immune" to racism, contrary to regressive SJW logic. In America, it would seem that white people are the majority, racially. It's quite easy to point out people of color in a nation where white is the racial majority. Racism, in America, is a social creation and that's it. To my knowledge, there aren't any laws that discriminate on the basis of race, and there shouldn't be. People are simply annoyed at how BLM can get away with causing massive property damage. I think it's also fair to say that minorities themselves speak for white people frequently. BLM doesn't understand that rioting and the destruction of other's property is counterintuitive. It's our right, as Americans, to protest but for some reason their "protests" aren't in the least bit civil. Of course, this is just my opinion and I'm not here to debate with an SJW.

he probably understands how it is grow up as a black person in the USA then for example me and im guessing you so im pretty sure is more knowledgeable on the subject then us.


Well, if his bio is correct he's not American for one. For two, 15 year olds don't tend to focus a lot on broad sociopolitical issues with decades of complex history behind them. I would not describe my 15 year old self or any of my classmates as particularly knowledge on anything beyond my immediate environment and how much Playstation and Sailor Moon binging I could fit into said environment. >.>

That is not to discount his experience, but its also not enough by itself to be making proclamations on whats happening in every community or what they should be doing about it. Especially not from the standpoint of Tupac lyrics. ;p

They have been playing a number of the old Martin Luther King speeches and comments on the TV lately. He pushed nonviolence all the time. He was against the term "Black Power", since it just raises the ire of every other group. That is what the problem is with the term "Black Lives Matter", because in reality, ALL lives matter. In the end, violence begets violence.

Just like they always have.

"I must make two honest confessions to you, my Christian and Jewish brothers. First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection." - Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail, 1963.

Black people should protest as they see fit to. The problem isn't with BLM, but with miscreants who mean well, but have no restraint on their anger or are just angry at the person and not the institution. Most whites don't understand that when people say Black Lives Matter, they're not saying that Black lives matter more than any other lives. They're trying to get people to see how Black lives are being devalued and NOT treated as any other life. To kill a Black man in America isn't being weighed equally in the Justice system. We are getting little or no justice for the taking of Black Lives by a racist system that was set up during a time when Blacks had little or no rights. To the young brother from England, your heart is in the right place but you really know nothing about American Civil Rights but I implore you to learn all that you can. I can say this though. Most of the problems that arise at protest don't come from the Movements organizers but from outside agitators who don't even understand what they're fighting for. It's pure ignorance to hate a group of human beings based solely on the color of their skin. Love will conquer Hate in the end.

These don't really just apply to black protesters but rather to anyone looking to protest an issue or government action but;

1. Peaceful marches and standing/sitting protests to raise awareness of issues rather than violent riots and looting.

2. Less confrontational slogans, they don't have be be completely PC but chanting "we want dead cops" in the middle of a city street is not helping anyone.

3. Putting an end to the "us vs them" mentality that seems so prevalent these days.

4. (This is the big one) Presenting actual plans on how to make thing better plus being willing to negotiate with government officials and police on how to solve the issues rather than simply shouting angrily and expecting your voice to be heard.

At the end of the day, people can protest all the hell they want. Black or white or whatever, also white people protest more than any race. You people ever been on a liberal arts college campus ?

Black people, all people really, if they want to protest should do it peacefully. Signs and placards, sit-ins, meetings with legislators, peaceful assemblies of people making reasonable demands, running for office yourself, and most of all voting.

How do you not protest? Rioting and looting, ambushing police and killing them, chanting we want dead cops, inciting violence. Because to the majority this is what they see:

BLM: Some cops might be racist and stop and frisk black men more than they should
Police: BLM is burning down and looting stores, shooting police officers, and beating uninvolved bystanders.

They will pick Police every single time. If you present yourself as a violent mob don't expect the majority to side with you. They will see you as dangerous. They will see what the state and police are doing as a necessary evil to keep this violent mob in line. You will not change minds for the better with these methods. You will only be marginalized at best.

Whereas if you have a peaceful group doing a march, organizing, and bringing specific grievances with you most people will be amenable to you. If you have a group politicians will meet with you. Local politicians especially. Local elections (the guys who are the police's boss) sometimes have just a few thousand voters in a district so if you can bring a couple hundred voters with you local politicians will bend over backwards to meet with you, hear your grievances, and submit legislation to win your votes. And then make sure your group does vote to get that politician on your side in office and keep them there. And if no politician will meet with your group, have someone from your group run for office.

And that is where BLM went wrong. As soon as people started calling for dead cops, inciting violence, and looting they should have denounced the people involved. They should have organized and people that were inciting violence should have been disavowed and ostracized right from the start. But they didn't. They let these people stay. They enabled them. And now most people see BLM as a threat. As anarchic troublemakers. They have gone on to prove their detractors right.

Like anyone else, as long as you protest peacefully it is within your constitutional right.

Regardless of who's protesting, I don't support mob rule.
