    "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.

      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 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.

                    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 ..

    Why, again?

      If you and your societal faction starting doing it instead of just talking about it, we might get somewhere.

    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.
