"The documentary named “The Greatest Lie Ever Sold“ depicts that the media created a narrative that explained a summer of global riots and helped the rise of Black Lives Matter and how they used the turmoil to raise a whooping amount of 90 million dollars after the death of George Floyd.
George was an African-American man who was killed by a white cop named Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis, Minnesota. People strongly criticized it and protested to stop violence against black people. Candace Owens has also depicted how money was spent, where it went, and where it didn’t.

I recommend watching this, it is fascinating.
BLM (Black Lives Matter) is a social and decentralized movement depicting the criticism, racism, discrimination, and racial inequality Black people face. Black Lives Matter was started in 2013 in retaliation to the discharge of Trayvon Martin’s murderer.
And yes, Mike, I "clicked" on her and this "30 something" does not speak for me.
If BLM brings the grievances from me and other black people to the national stage and forefront, it is serving a greater purpose as far as I am concerned.
While there has been much to complain about regarding BLM, it can't be any worse than Qanon and the myriad of sordid Republican based lies and conspiracy theories.
"...it is serving a greater purpose as far as I am concerned."
Does that mean you would give them money to help buy their real estate mansions?
Probably not, but as to more protests and making public issue of continued disparities, yes....
Now thats what we need - more "protests" by BLM, destroying more and more of our cities and businesses! More crime to go with the "defund police" cries. More division and hatred spread everywhere. Yes, we certainly need these things.
Yes, there is sarcasm there, but we ALL need to recognize that BLM has done far more damage and harm, to both the nation and people completely innocent of any of their complaints, than they have done good. When an organization decides they don't want law and order, when the glorify a common criminal, when they sponsor and aid in months of destructive rioting, well, we are far better off without them and their "voice" screaming about issues they themselves foment and add to.
With current inequity, racism and discrimation in how the law enforcement and legal system operate, your concerns and fears are just yours alone.
The division is already here, instead of covering up and denying it, it will be brought front and center and I am all for that.
But again, a protest for you is always a riot, but our message is going to be relayed, regardless. The voices of dissent and complaint will not be silenced.
From your side, it is always convienient to ignore an issue when it is contrary to your beliefs. But many of us will not be dissuaded so easily.
Of course my fears are mine. But mine alone? You might ask the owners of the businesses in Portland Or. that are still boarded up today if those fears are theirs or not. Ask the people of CHAZ. Ask the small business owner that went out of business rather than be subjected to your message again. Ask the larger stores if that fear is why they hired additional security. And when you are done, come back and explain that it is only me that has fear of rioting.
"But again, a protest for you is always a riot, but our message is going to be relayed, regardless."
"Your" message is one of violence, destruction and hatred. Plus, with the increase in crime we're seeing, an exceeding stupid call to defund police. As such I'm not interested in hearing any more of it, and would do anything I could to put a stop to the rioting "your" message always seems to bring with it.
And from "your" side, terrorism (harm to innocent people) is an acceptable, useful tool in spreading the message that every person in the country has already heard.
Here is my take on it. Your exaggerations and distortions don't always play to a packed house.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics … d-capitol/
Your message offers not an alternative except to silence the concerns of me and mine, and that is not going to happen.
So, ANY protest in this matter is a riot to you as you have expressed in previous threads and posts here before. So, I have seen that movie, too.
"So, ANY protest in this matter is a riot to you as you have expressed in previous threads and posts here before. So, I have seen that movie, too."
Yes, we have been over this before. With the same result - you put words in my mouth that were never there (all protests are NOT riots, in spite of your claim that I said they are). All while you maintain that the ends justify the means, and that the harming of innocent people is simply the price "you" and "your people" will inflict onto others because your cause is just. Terrorism, in other words; the inflicting of pain onto innocent people in order to change something that they have nothing to do with.
A large part of the problem, which you have acknowledge is true, is that your concept of a "protest" is that if it doesn't inflict at least some harm then it is worthless in promoting your goal. A concept that takes it from a "protest" to a "riot" in my mind, for "peaceful protests" harm no one, while a "riot" does.
"The division is already here, instead of covering up and denying it, it will be brought front and center and I am all for that."
The only thing being brought front and center by BLM is how is scams people out of money. It has done nothing for the black community other than take huge sums of money for personal gain. That's it. This is a corrupt organization. This is a fact.
How do you know what benefits the Black Community, Mike? It is not like you would really have an accurate perspective from which to express that opinion.
In spite of what "little miss muffet" says, that, too is a fact....
Ah, but many black conservative voices are being heard. They have opinions on what benefits the Black Community because they are from a black community.
"little miss muffet"
Ah, attack someone who provides facts you don't like. That is the way of the democrat party.
There are segments and factions of virtually everything, why is a considerably smaller faction having a conservative opinion within the Black Community considered by your people to be the predominant one? It is not, you know.
I can tell you from personal experience that your assessment is not the correct one.
I know all about her, she is just a Republican mouthpiece with a opinion that simply is not shared by the vast majority of our group.
I wanted to add this, Mike, it might help you understand why so many of us avoid the GOP like the plague.
https://www.politico.com/magazine/story … op-214209/
"The party has to commit to changing its image and consider policies that are attractive to black voters that remain within the boundaries of traditional conservative thought."
Are you folks capable of this, Mike?
I think the bigger picture is creating policies that benefit ALL races. That is why the numbers of black conservatives is growing. They are able to see the bigger picture and not just part of it.
"Understand why your embrace of some prominent black conservatives—the sheriff in Milwaukee, Ben Carson, the South Carolina pastor who tweeted an image of Hillary Clinton in blackface, Herman Cain, etc.—is making your job harder, not easier. If they could help you effectively reach a broader black audience, the black vote total you’d be receiving would already be in the double-digits. They simply underscore the belief that you are OK with black people as long as they make you comfortable and say only what you already want to believe about black people. They are a barrier to your long-term goal, not a bridge."
And this includes Candice. So we agree to disagree.
I'm not Mike, but will answer your last question anyway.
No. Magic is not actually possible, and that is what it would take to change the image in the minds of some people. The reality doesn't matter, only the perception and image generated...generated by those with a lifetime of dislike and hatred of anyone with light skin.
The truth of the matter is that conservatism is, and has been for some time, doing far more for blacks than liberalism, with it's eternal giveaway programs that accomplish nothing but drying tears for a day, only to repeat the next day. But that is the reality, and the perceptions and image created by those same people are still that they are still downtrodden by anyone with light skin (can we all change "racism" in unison).
Your answer is appreciated.
How do you know what has done more for Me? Your Republicans "give away" as well, but just to the "fat cats".
What you claim to be a reality is in actuality, just YOUR perception. Obviously, either you did not read the article or its content went over your head?
My opinion is unchanged, we agree to disagree.
Yes, we will have to agree to disagree. We've been over this one before, too, and we can never agree which is better to give; a fish or the ability to catch a fish.
(Yes, I read the article. A lot of opinion, a lot of exaggeration, a lot of vague statements, but nearly nothing of any substance at all.) Nor did I find much, if anything, current; it was mostly about what was going on and the (vague) accomplishments of Democrats 100 years ago. Things like "We fought for you!", or "We tried to help!")
Then, there is the third alternative, in the world of Trump Republicanism where they are committed to not providing either one.
The thread speaks of Candace Owens and Black conservatism, I just provided an article from a source that provided an explanation as to why that idea is experiencing resistance from most black voters and I concur with it completely, just as assuredly as you would take issue with it without a good explanation.
Many Blacks are blind to the fact that they have a victimology mentality. They can improve themselves educationally & socioeconomically, but they refuse to do so. They would rather blame societal circumstances than themselves, please face the facts. There are myriad opportunities for Blacks to succeed & to adopt a positive lifestyle which is conducive to success. There are Blacks who adopt, even embrace dysfunctional, even pathological cultures.
I had seen this. A pretty revealing investigation - would that our "news" sources did more of the same.
Pinpointing, complaining, blaming and focusing on racism is not helpful.
What is? All people accepting each other regardless of differences; accepting differences, embracing differences and celebrating life itself by realizing we all, each and every one of us, are children of God.
Let us end it there,
but we won't ..
A BLM documentary, often addressing the Black Lives Matter movement, sheds light on the ongoing struggle for racial equality and justice. These powerful films explore the systemic racism faced by Black individuals and communities, emphasizing the need for social change and accountability. While "Free Govt. iPhone" may not directly relate to the documentary's content, it symbolizes the broader call for equitable access to resources and opportunities, including the right to document and share experiences of racial injustice through technology. Such documentaries serve as essential tools for education, empathy, and advocacy in the fight against racial discrimination.
