  1. Everyones life matter! All races

    • Everyone does matter my dear friend named Someone but right now only African Americans are being killed in this heinous fashion, maybe the rest of us should stand with them since we aren’t being killed that way.

        You need to go get your facts pulled together because that is not a true statement…. use the govt stats, not what you read on facebook.

    Many people don’t take BLM seriously because they sit back day after day, month after month, year after year killing each other by the thousands without a peep. You should probably re-name your organization: “Its OK if We kill each other and others but if a white kills one of us its racist regardless if I pull a gun on them”.

    I don’t even understand why black “leaders” keep portraying the victim mentality because its a false narrative. Blacks are just as smart and just as capable of being successful in our world today…..there are so many examples. If blacks want to move forward then quit treating the other races like we are racist and just live life. There are just as many black racists as there are white racists so get over yourselves and move forward. Quit playing the victim, quit asking for special treatment and quit letting others tell you that the world is against. The world is not against and that’s proven and visible in our everyday lives. Many whites bend over backwards to keep from being viewed as racist…..

    Blacks would have a damn heart attack if someone launched White Miss America; White Entertainment TV; and all of the other isolationist efforts that go on. If you want to be the same; then dammit be the same and quit blaming whites for your problems. Your problems are with your leaders and the democrat party who use your weaknesses to keep you under their thumb and under control. I never understood how blacks became democrats anyway being that the Republican party stopped slavery spearheaded by Lincoln; the republican party passed the 64 Civil Rights Act. Charles Evers (Medgar Evers brother) is 93 yrs old and is a Republican to this day living in Jackson, Ms.

    The Black Panthers are racists just like the KKK are racist…. I say that we just let those 2 groups meet up on a field somewhere, charge for pay per view and let them kill each other until the last 2 are standing and that would eliminate that part of our society and we’ll all be better off. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are just 2 racists, no different than a white racist, that make their living off race baiting and keeping the pot stirred. If there were 2 whites running around spewing that same type of crap all hell would be breaking loose.

    Were blacks treated unjustly in the past? You bet they were and that’s why history doesn’t need to be erased. It happened and we need to inform our children so that nothing like that happens again. All this crap about removing statues and such is just an effort by the left’s talking heads to stir up the pot and try to change history. What happened happened. Just like the holocaust happened, we can’t erase that and we can’t stop teaching what happened. if you go to the holocaust museum you don’t see the emblems and such deleted out from that history…..

    The human race has far more in common than differences no matter what color or ethnic origin. There will never be an elimination of racism and it exists in every culture to some degree or the other. My philosophy… if you don’t like me before you get to know me then that’s your loss but I’m not going to allow your racism to dictate who I am.

    • Black Lives Matter is important because African Americans are killed all over the USA all the time for the same crime a white individual commits and yet the white individual lives, African Americans are killed unjustly, African Americans are also killed when they are innocent of the crime which is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting. White Americans are not treated this way so BLACK LIVES MATTER is extremely important and should be taken SERIOUSLY until our African American brothers and sisters are treated the same way as our White American brothers and sisters are. That is the purpose of Black Lives Matter. You mention the past and that African Americans should just live their life if you truly look at the African Americans who are being killed a lot of them are just living their life as you put it in your comment, hence Sandra Bland, Philando Castile, Alonzo Smith, Keith McLeod, Felix Kumi, Darrius Stewart, Johnathan Sanders, take a look at their stories and you’ll see they were just people my dear American friend living their lives.

        You are just spewing talking points that you picked up from social media and such. The fact that some of the cases that you referenced were justified shootings is proof enough. Again… BLM says NOTHING about the couple of dozen blacks that get killed in Chicago every single weekend.

    I’m guessing my other post won’t be allowed….. nobody in the media wants the truth told.

  4. “In shootings in these 10 cities involving officers, officers were more likely to fire their weapons without having first been attacked when the suspects were white. Black and white civilians involved in police shootings were equally likely to have been carrying a weapon. Both results undercut the idea of racial bias in police use of lethal force.”

    This is from a comprehensive study on police interactions with civilians by Roland G. Fryer Jr., a Harvard Professor, as reported in the liberal New York Times.

    Food for thought about the false sense of the frequency of these events presented by just watching media reports.

  5. Violent Protesters Matter!
