I see this everywhere: on Twitter, on forums, and on the news. I am asking this out of pure curiosity and confusion, because I don't see anything racist about the statement/hashtag.

The BLM is a scam, and if a two term black president is enough for them, then maybe they are in the wrong country. BLM rioting and destroying businesses and other property hardly seems like a valid movement. Start by respecting others.
I understand what you are saying. What does the BLM movement hope to achieve? and why some are being paid to protest?
If there intent to save blacks from being shot by police, the best way to do so is education. Just like Eric Holder, with his son.
I agree that rioting is never the way to get a point across but there are plenty of peaceful BLM protests.
BLM does aim to educate to by exposing the fact that systemic racism still exists & that people are willing to speak out against it.
BLM is known for their rioting, not for their education of their issues. If a black president didn't make a difference, then what will it take?
"Known for" by whom? I wasn't aware that you were the appointed authority on how everyone else perceives issues.
Why are you under the impression that having a black president for 8 years can fix hundreds of years of racism?
The BLM rioting of last year was in the news, and it is the same as it is in NC today. If a Black president can't fix it then the blacks have a real problem internally. How many pure blacks do we have today, with all the interracial marriages?
white presidents have had over 200 years in office and they haven't improved anything for anybody, so what's your logic,
The diff is that a Black pres should be more empathetic to the average black person more so than a white pres. the Black should have less reason to riot under blk pres. You don't see the logic in that? And why should skin color determine race?
Brad, Two world wars have been fought in Europe. White on white violence under white Presidents and white rulers. Having white rulers has never stopped white on white violence. Your point is absurd, pedestrian, and illogical.
I agree, we are being played, and most of the people being played don't have a clue. Dance monkey dance.
Billie Kelpin if I hadn't given my vote for best answer to ALT Prime earlier I'd give it to you You expanded on Alt Prime's Truthfullness Maybe this truth is coming from the daughters and sons of the fathers that sin against The lost tribes of Africa
ALT Prime you will not have your answer chosen best answer to an ALT RIght type question such as asked above but you got my vote. Yours is among the best I heard but , your answer is too real too truth full.
I am disappointed in your answer.
bradmaster, I know you and you know me this is not the first time we've disappointed each other but , this must hurt I never heard you say ouch before. Are you disappointed in what I wrote or I didn,t write?
What you said. BLM versus BLM in action. For the last 150 yrs blacks have done this Rioting, and that is not consistent for what they say they want, Justice. They have failed over and over again, but Justice requires intelligence not riots. :)
bradmaster, intelligence, not any action or slogans will bring about justice and stop the police killings of Blacks That comment is without substance. Go to my profile and read what I think about BLM its at the top. There is substance read if you can
Let me get this straight. In 2016, wr have a black President, a black attorney general, a black police sheriff in Charlotte, NC, a black police officer shooting a black driver, and a Democratic mayor controlled for 50 years...
it's white racists?...
This doesn't explain why my comment is not valid.
Rioting didn't work last year, and it didn't in the 60s. It is not intelligent to continue a failed tactic. So the blacks that kill cops are Justified. And creating riots that kill people is OK
Brad not only is your comments without substance they are too vague. A lot of blacks & whites died before and after riots by white mob violence Do you suggest armed revolt is more intelligent than peaceful protest? You two speak with fork tongues
THX Junko ~ I was RAISED by Parents who STRESSED "Honesty is the BEST Policy" & FACTs Rule my WORLD, not Ridiculous RIGHT Wing CONSPIRACIES & Lies from "DARK Spaces" like FOX Loser Network that PEDDLEs CON-Man Trump ~ Rational MINDs Know "BLM
We have 250 chars. Blacks are being manipulated by liberals, they are their indentured servants. They own the blacks, they are the ones behind the violence in the riots.fact,blacks have not progressed, their own fault, no one else
Whites riots, not black: NY City Draft Riots 1863: Omaha Race Riot 1919. Red Summer 1919, Black Wallstreet 1921. Since 1860 over 1000 blacks have been killed by white rioters who were the aggressors. Black people have excelled. You live to lie,
Ronnie, some people do live to lie " There is one truth and many lies the truth is sometimes ugly that's way most people love a lie even when they know the truth"
There is nothing plain about it, your logic is flawed.
BK, You are right on the money. Furthermore, the primary purpose of BLM is to end police brutality against black people, regardless of the cops race. The racists have only focused on the racial aspect of the controversy in an effort to demonize BLM.
Here is Harvard study by a black professor-
How is that working out? Racism wouldn't exist if people would stop calling everything Racist.This is a presidential election year, the Constitution should be used by BLM not riots.
Sorry, you are wrong in this case. The shooting in Charlotte NC is not a race case. You have a black police officer shooting a black victim and a black police sheriff... and a Democratic mayor... Why is BLM protesting and rioting...?
No, you are wrong. BLM is concerned with cops killing black people.It just happens to be the case that they are often white, but overall the color of the cop is irrelevant. Are you suggesting it's OK for white cops to kill white people?
No, you are wrong. BLM is about fighting against police brutality and the killing of black people by the police. It is irrelevant what color the cop may be, although it is often the case that the killer cop is a white racist.
You are losing your argument and common sense. All data has shown cops are not targeting blacks. The few cases of bad cops shooting blacks have been prosecuted. In many of the shootings, it it due to the escalation of a person not obeying...
Then your data is wrong. Furthermore, if there is no weapon, and no threat to the cop , the fact that a citizen may not "obey" a particular command is no cause for a death sentence. Tamir Rice didn't have time to obey in 3 secs.
What does BLM want to happen? What is the end game? Do they want the police to stop policing? When you have disorder, it leads to chaos and the people will suffer and society breaks down. Is rioting and looting the answer?
Obviously they want to stop miscreant cops from killing innocent people. And they want accountability. The U.S. government uses violence to further it;s agenda. Do you consider WWI,WWII, Korea,Vietnam,and Iraq to be "peaceful protests"?
The one place in America that is truly Racist are the Prisons. In prisons, prisoners identify with race and form a prison gang. And all the gangs are racist according to any definition of the word.
