    Are there any similarities between Black Lives Matter and the KKK?

    It seems that BLM, despite its protestations, has been shown to be working purely on hatred along racial lines. This is similar to the KKK of yesteryear.
    With the BLM murderers openly advocating violence and murder against white individuals, is the movement just a thinly-veiled version of the KKK?

    All organizations based in hate have more similarities than differences but if you look at the photo you've provided one glaring difference between the BLM and the KKK should stand out. Only one organization is trying to hide who they are.

      Doesn't that simply mean that black racism is acceptable whereas a white person would be knocked down for similar views?

      No. It just means that in the photos you've supplied you're saying that the black racist is not afraid to been seen for who he is and the white racist is. They're both racists and they're both only helping the hatred keep its foothold in this world

      But that would be the reason the black racist isn't afraid to be seen - there are no consequences for him. On the other hand, the white racist knows of the severe consequences and therefore does not reveal himself.

      I grew up in North Carolina. If you think there were any consequences to being a member of the KKK then you are delusional.

      If you expect any sane person to believe there are people in North Carolina going about their lives in KKK robes minus the hat, like BLM activists and Black Panthers, you are telling lies.

      I left North Carolina in 1967 when I was 21. No they didn't all walk around in robes and hoods but that didn't mean they weren't participating members. if there's one thing evil knows how to do it's to hide in plain sight and they do it well.

      Yet the BLM and the Black Panthers members do not even have to do that. Funny how welcoming and accepting of racism Americans have become.

      I wouldn't call it welcoming and accepting, I'd call it apathetic. As for not hiding, I'd rather see my enemy than have to wonder if everyone I meet is one. The horror of discovering a beloved teacher is a KKK member is not an experience to be envied

      So you judge your personal feelings of discovering a racist to be more important than the acts of racism themselves.
      That is actually welcoming and accepting of racism.

    The similarities include:
    * demands for racial segregation, such as BLM kicking out whites from meetings, calling for only black teachers and police for black communities
    * demands for racial superiority, like telling whites to always defer to blacks who are speaking and don't be in front
    * demonization of other racial groups, calling whites crackers and evil, along with routine guilt tripping of whites for things that happened generations ago; diversity training has devolved into this 
    * BLM calling for the death of whites as the KKK called for the lynching of blacks - and this is separate from the black on white violence that is at least fifty times as common as white on black assaults, from the knock out game / polar bear hunting to black kids beating up white kids and posting it on Youtube for kudos

    Black Activists Call for Lynching and Hanging of White People and Cops … -and-cops/

    BLM activist advocates white genocide at Harvard

    The fact that kill all white men, kill the crackers and similar hash tags not only exist on Twitter but aren't condemned as racist.

    Hi Terrex! How's it going?

    If I may say a word about the much maligned Black Panther Party. Did you know that Fred Hampton, a Black Panther Party leader formed something called the Rainbow Coalition in Chicago, Illinois in the late 1960s?

    "Rainbow," as in "all the colors of the..."? Did you know that members of this coalition included: The American Indian Movement; the Black Panther Party; Brown Berets; I Wor Kuen; Patriot Party; Young Lords, Young Patriot Organization; and last but not least the White Panther Party, a leftist, anti-racist, radical "White political collective founded in 1968 by Pun Plamondon, Leni Sinclair, and John Sinclair"? (Wikipedia).

    And those are not all of the coalition the Black Panthers built. Is this not evidence that the Black Panther Party was fighting for social and economic justice for everyone?

    And "Black Lives Matter." Do you really want to suggest that they are saying that black lives matter above all others? Is that really what you mean to suggest? Surely not!

    You were just testing us, right? You just wanted to see if we knew what's happening, correct?

    Thank you for keeping us on our toes around here!
