    What is needed to be said? BLM is a hate group that doesn't give a shit about improving its own issues or coming up with a constructive way to handle their grievances, instead they want dead cops, and destroy their own neighborhoods. Fuck them and anyone who tries to rationalize their actions.

    My opinion is going to be largely unpopular either side, but I believe the overall message is good, stating that there is an issue with race on America and that needs to be addressed.

    However, the issue with a group like this, is that there are people going overboard, whether it be from the leaders of a number of people who see this as a way of causing shit.

    It doesn't help the cause at all, and I do want to separate those have legit concerns and want to start change and those who see it as a way of attacking a race of people.

    Even if the leaders have more malicious intentions, the overall message of the group needs to be the focus.

    Part of the issue is due to the class system in America, and a lot of it is down to many black people being apart of it.
    The point is that in many lower class communities, schools are under funded meaning many students don't get an education, those teenagers also have to find other groups of people and tend to latch onto those who commit violent crimes, earning respect and making money.

    Many of them can't get a decent job due to education being so poor. And while this isn't exclusively to black people, many of them bare the brunt of it.

    It's not as easy as putting out one data full of statistics and I know there are people out there who are a lot smarter than me who have the specific stats on this plus a bunch of other arguments.

    It's an issue of perspective

    Poverty is not an excuse for being only about 13% of the population but making up the majority of crime.

    Why not HUMAN lives matter? Why black? White folks dying everywhere doesn't matter, or matter less than black folks? Is this movement fueled by hateful racist ideology or what? Questions, questions..

    "Saying all lives matter is racist and trivializes what BLM represent. Whites in this country are privileged therefore their lives are not as important as oppressed minorities." ~ Average BLM activist or regressive leftist SJW.

    Reminds me of a vid I saw about this rich YouTuber who claimed his wealth didn't make him privileged and that white homeless folk have more privilege than he does.

    Yeah I saw that too. In fact, come to think of it, a lot of these people who scream about "privilege" are people who are very wealthy and well off.

    Isn't claiming an entire race is priveliged kind of... Racist and petty?

    What rubs me the wrong way is that there are couple of hundreds people shot by American police every year. White, red, yellow, black, and perhaps even green or pink! If any true American sees this as some injustice being committed by American government on fellow Americans, he should have protested against this injustice as a whole. Trying to exclude just black folks from the process without giving any shit about other folks seems to be pretty much racist to me.

    Nope, all whites are racists and only whites can be racist. Didn't you get the memo?

    EDIT: There are issues in the US that need dealing with, but BLM are going about it the wrong way. The very wrong way.

    If they say "BLM" but "fuck everyone else", it's another stupid divisive "movement" from idiots that feel important by doing "justice", saying shit from the comfort ability of their house and Internet or by killing police men treacherously. Hell, the police chief Brown in Dallas is black
    I doubt that ANY of this people would move a finger for "justice" in the Apartheid.

    Remember, black lives matter. Expect for the lives of black police officers and black business owners. Fuck em, am I right?
