Hell no, and that proves how crazy BLM protestors are. There is some question as to whether BLM movement is being financed by overseas terrorist organizations, but the organization is being used as a recruiting tool by ISIS. These gullible people don't even know what they are protesting.

They are protesting because they claim that "Elvis was a wealthy white man". They should be ashamed of themselves because black people made Elvis. Elvis took black blues and incorporated it into rockabilly and made the blues respectable for both races. Then we white kids picked up on it and started buying his records. I know because that was my generation, and I heard white racists in my father's generation complaining that he was promoting that "n***** music." Even my father didn't want us kids buying his music. After Hollywood got hold of him, it could appear that he was a "rich white guy", but he was a white guy who played Black Music. Black Lives Mattered to him, and these people are nothing but gutter trash to treat him so badly. Most of these agitators aren't from the Memphis area anyway. My husband's family lives in Memphis, and we hate to see him done that way.
He had many friends of the black race and never looked down on any of them. He and his music and that of other crossover artists paved the way for, and helped establish the credibility of Black leaders, including the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton, heck, even Mohammed Ali. These a$$hole protestors should be kissing his front porch for what he did for them.
No, it is simply attention seeking.
The irony is that it does nothing to help black lives. They won't condemn blacks killing blacks in gang shootings that take more lives in just Chicago than cops kill in a whole year. And we know they don't really care about police brutality, because they don't care about whites and hispanics killed by cops.
They are using blacks killed by cops to justify rioting and demand money, as well as pushing for policing to be pulled back in poor black communities so they can set up themselves as the authority.

Do you think that "Black Lives Matter" is designed to bring us closer or to further divide us?I am hopeful that we can find a way to live together on this planet respecting each other and valuing each other.

Why is saying #AllLivesMatter considered racist?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.

Is it seen as racist to say all lives matter now?I saw someone called a racist on twitter for sharing a story with the #AllLivesMatter. Is it somehow seen politically incorrect now to care about all lives? I'm a bit confused. I see this as a good thing, not bad.

There are too many news stories about racial tensions in the United States; violence, murder, and destruction of property amidst the chaos of racially charged events is putting unnecessary stress on this nation. The Black Lives Matter group is usually connected, if only because the group has...

There appears to be a controversy over the statement, "Black Lives Matter."It seems that to say "All lives matter" is taken as a denial of the Black Lives Matter truth, even if it is immediately followed by an emphasis that of course black lives matter too.Maybe one explanation...
