Unfortunately their agenda is not equal rights or protections so such a thought runs counter to their strategy and ideology. It makes me feel what I can only describe as anger that such a group that promotes racism would receive anything other then public disgust and condemnation.

I'm also shocked this article fails to paint a broader perspective. you can tell the author of the article is pro black lives matter. at the bottom of the article they state that 266 "Black people' were killed by police. This is an attempt to demonize a white demographic. What percentage of those 266 shootings were non white officers? how many white people were killed by police in the same time frame?If the Authors goal was to suggest people of African heritage have some great threat from the police that protect them. Then such a myth needs to be corrected. in the same year over 10,000 people of African heritage were killed by people of the same race/creed. This is a political sleight of hand so to speak to make something out of a trivial issue. Thats not to say any human life is trivial... just that saying the African communities greatest threat is the police is incorrect and holds no weight

The implication is BLM is "Black Lives Matter Too" not "Black Lives Matter Only". Despite what some people seem to insist on thinking.

That's kind of what happens when every intelligence agency you have concludes that a foreign power who has been historically opposed to the US and its interests fucks with one of America's most sacred tenants. That you *aren't* alarmed means you haven't yet fully grasped the implications of such a thing.

Well, I'd brand them idiots first and foremost. It wouldn't make any sense if they did as they don't exactly have the same history behind them do they?

they actually have yet to conclude Russia did what they did on the scale that is being claimed, yesthey hacked the DNC, not the election tho,
it hasn't been proven that "trump is in putins pocket" so to speak tho
you cant honestly thinkputin has that much power when congress has more power than trump do you?


as for the other, people always seem to forget the irish, their status as slaves were lower than Africans over here and were treated as such
and in Europe middle easterners always took white Europeans as slaves, whites to this day are treated horribly over in Africa and the middle east, what is left of the white population there that is, so yes whites have had and do have systemic oppression in dfferent places, particularly where we are a minority, like south Africa

do we have it over here in America and some of Europe? no
does it exist stil? yes lol
why cant we just fight against injustice for all instead of singling out a particular race,and sorry but its not black lives matter "too" otherwise that would be in the name tbh, and their actions
speaking of minority

on the grand scale of the whole world , we are a minority, compared to "poc" which would include middle easterners, Africans, som south americans etc

BLM is such a complicated issue when it comes down to it. It has less to do with racism and more to do with inherent poverty and bias formulated from that poverty.

I think what people need to realize is black people aren't to blame for what they inherited and white people aren't to blame for what they inherited.

When you have a lineage that goes to poor slave farms and a couple generations of families getting by in communities that have no money and look to each other to survive (Us vs them) you are left with conditions that foster crime and then you are left with a bias that sees these communities in a more racist and dangerous way. Add in the fact that many come from racist families and are given the opportunity to hate in these conditions and you have a recipe for complete and total dissociation from Black people and Cops (Which both can have fervent racism!).

People need to stop blaming each other on this issue. It's complicated. Almost as much as my last relationship .

With that said the justifications seems ok. Why are we getting mad at who gets the peace prize award? That seems so petty to me.

I think that the Nobel Peace Prize has lost all credibility. For example: No matter what you think of Barack Obama, giving him the peace prize before he even took office makes no sense. The other Nobel Prizes might be OK, but the people doing the selecting for the peace prize need to be replaced.
