I am hopeful that we can find a way to live together on this planet respecting each other and valuing each other.

I think that sometimes movements such as this one are formed by well-intentioned individuals and then those who have ulterior motives jump on board and turn it into something it was not intended to be. Thank you for commenting.
BLM is a social issue that government cannot fix, as with any other social issue.
Acknowledge it all you want, it can't be fixed. If a 2 term black president didn't help what would help? nothing.
The black stereotype is a composite from real life.
I agree with you, dashingscorpio. BLM is all about creating awareness of the issue of institutionalized inequity and maltreatment of African Americans in the US under the law, which of course can be ameliorated if enough people demand justice.
I think you stated this rather well. It must be acknowledged or it will never be fixed. Sometimes I think the injustices against black people in America are a reaction to the fact that some Americans dislike the fact that they had a black president.
Change does come slowly but it can come if we make it our business to reach out to others. It must begin at the grassroots level...in our neighborhoods and communities, I believe. We cannot affect change if everyone is not invested n making it.
It important to keep this input in mind when involved in a discussion on the topic.
It's really sad and frustrating to see people buy into their crap, and Obama's racist crap as well.
This is all about bringing in martial law and blacks are falling right into the president's plan. I wish some eyes would open. We are going to be controlled very soon letting the government stir up trouble to gain control. Hillary will follow Obama.
One time I saw a T-Shirt with Black Lives Matter on it. I live in a very mixed neighborhood with many many African Americans -- they just don't seem to be present here. Are they just a very small minority with violence and shouting?
Jackie Lynnley, your comment about martial law struck home with me. I've been saying the very same thing for 3 years now. If we look back at history, Mussolini & Hitler did the same things this administration is doing now. Welcome to the 3rd Worl
If everyone would look at the big picture they could easily see it. Look how Hillary right now is almost inviting blacks to kill cops. I know her and Obama are getting illegals ID'd to vote by the thousands if not millions, it will be a fixed electio
Eric, sometimes my posts get deleted when I add links, but google "blacks in Russia" or "blacks in Europe" and see who is backing this movement.
This is a very difficult topic..and it would be almost impossible to determine the right and wrong in shootings without cameras to catch every bit of action that occurs.
Simple these people stand side by side in unity a global brother and sister hood.
They get along in peace.
If you got a problem here on earth .
God the Father will not tolerated in his realm ,the reason satan was thrown down here.
Whatever its intentions, the results are divisive. In LA years ago, the mostly black crowds rioted, pillaged, vandalized, and set cars on fires, because their sports team won. The Blacks like the Muslims need to build up their image with deeds.
We need to do as Rodney King said....we all need to just get along. Unfortunately there are those of both races who are filled with hate and rage and like to stir the pot.. It is NOT everyone...there are so many good people of all races.
I agree and I have heard many blacks say the same. These BLM are not of any benefit to the black community just being used by the government to bring in a one world government. They will see once it is too late.
Open Society Foundation and Soros directly support organizations directly tied to and even to BLM. Very interesting. Hillary and Obama seem to be closely allied also. I wonder what that says about the group.
That's a point that I don't like. I don't like everything they advocate, but I can't support Trump. In the late 1970s, a businessman proved in our state that you can't run government like a business. It took Bill Clinton to get us out of the hole.
I heard someone comment on BLM saying if it really did to black community why are they not protesting abortion clinics? I for one do think blacks do not realize how the party they prefer keep down the black race through abortion 4x more than white.
The fact of the black community being targeted for abortion by early promoters is in the historical record but today a good segment of the population knows that. Only a portion of blacks do not know it today. It's important to never forget that fact.
Aw Jeeze, that trite old stuff again. Welfare blacks may have been targeted, but abortions are expensive and medicaid doesn't pay for abortion on demand. I doubt if enough rich or upper middle class black women seek abortion to use that argument.
Abortion is free in many places MizB and I am sure woman wanting one will find them. Here is a little info on that. https://www.guttmacher.org/state-policy/explore/st...
Of course your opinion is important. This is not just an issue in our country. Some countries are more open it would seem but it still exists (I lived on foreign soil for 4 years and felt what it feels like.)
Arabs took ten times more African slaves than the Americas, and there are no black people in Arab lands - too high a death rate among the slaves.
MizJ. Just because something happens does not mean nothing will be done about it. Our time and calender is not God's time table.
What ever he has allowed he is in control to undo it when he is ready not based on humans dictating his power to act
KT, God's time table? If you believe in God, you will know that there is no time in heaven. Time is man-made so humans can have a concept of their lives. The "time to live, time to die" is a requirement for earth, not an infinite God.
MixJ. You are correct our Heavenly Father is eternal . But my comment said nothing about heaven. I did say our time table which is on earth , not heaven we humans live here on earth.
Too often we overlook all of the positives our nation offers...and the transparency that exists too.
conclusion, Are we one of these?
Re 7:9 After this I saw, and look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes;
K&T, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but God gave man free will and then stepped back to let us love or kill each other. What we do with that free will is no concern of his, otherwise he or the angels would intervene.
MizJ. Human have free will now to do things and are trusted by law to abide by it. if you decide to break the laws of man .you will pay one way or another.
Now God who is much different is mercifull also trusting you to do the right thing.
All lives do matter....and we need to work to that end.
