Black Lives Matter goes big on policy agenda

The BLM organization seems to be ignoring the "Don't all lives matter?" mantra which is currently chewing up the regressives and their media. BLM is finding new strength every day with professional sports and thousands of protesters in front of the White House supporting its goals. This strength is leading to true reallocation of funding from police department who have been heavy on repression to community services and development which will benefit black citizens.  Wait until these policies start becoming law and listen to the white regressives scream for their former advantages. 

 

 

After three months of sustained public protest, Black Lives Matter organizers are stepping from streets and plazas into the policy arena. And they’re going big.

The BREATHE Act, a four-part proposal named after the phrase uttered by Black men Eric Garner and George Floyd while in police choke holds, aims to codify the movement’s core objective: redirecting federal funds away from police, prisons and other parts of the criminal justice system and into underserved communities of color.

As the BLM movement matures into a policy writing and lobbying organization, the regressives will find themselves facing a very dedicated group of professionals from all walks of life who happen, usually, to be black. When a minority is facing death at the hands of civil authorities, it tends to motivate them more than someone who just wants to get his hood pressed regularly.

The black lives matter and their "policy agenda" needs to be dug into deeper and addressed. What's going on in our country should NEVER have been allowed, especially in the name of "peaceful protests".  Where's the peace in their actions???

 

As usual, it takes time for people to discover the truth about what's REALLY going on.  Better late, than never...

As stated, you first reject any "debate". 

Now you say this topic needs "to be dug into deeper" and that definitely is a more reasonable approach.  Let us know what you find as you dig deeper into the aspects and ideas of this proposed legislation.

The black lives matter movement is founded by self proclaimed trained marxists.  Their agenda is to destroy America period.  That is why we are seeing people attacking our American way of life and infiltrating our government that we would have never seen there a very short time ago. THEY are the true hate filled racists and show it constantly in what they say and do.  Yep, that's MY opinion and nobody can change it.  You can attack, debate it all you want...changes nothing.

Yup .... Trump's Russian buddies. They helped him to be unconstitutionally elected in 2016!!!

Trump showed that he is "the true hate filled racist" when he rabidly insulted and disparaged Mexicans in his candidacy for president ..... So VILE that he was fired from his own TV show!

And as president, Trump told Congressional women of color to "go back to their own countries"!

Not to be outdone by this vile command, Trump then called African nations "excrement hole countries"!

 

Yep, that's MY opinion

And it's obviously negated by the facts above!

 

and nobody can change it.  You can attack, debate it all you want...changes nothing.

Sad .... as it's obviously quite flawed as clearly pointed out above!

Thank you Rich for this post and its article.  In reading the BREATH.Act's "Section-by-Section Bill Summary, I am so impressed with the comprehensive application of extensive proposals put forward as they apply to a multitude of Federal agencies.

Some may call these legislative ideas nothing but a wish list, but that is how all created legislation begins its journey.  Now is the exact right time to move all of the issues put forward, forward.  BLM has given America the opportunity to reiterate and to embrace the value and moral directives as established in our Constitution.  I am proud of this effort and very encouraged for positive outcomes we will all benefit from in our futures.

.... “I think that we've demonstrated over time that we have the rigor and the relationships and the expertise to truly generate meaningful ideas into public policy solutions," said Jessica Byrd....  “And the BREATHE Act is the best and highest example of that.”

 

.... In the latest sign of its cultural significance, athletes across several professional leagues including the NBA, WNBA and MLB this week opted to break their contracts and sit out games and matches in a show of solidarity with anti-racism protesters.

 

.... According to a Gallup poll, nearly two-thirds of all Americans support Black Lives Matter protests and nearly half say the demonstrations have altered their views of racial justice.

 

.... “The movement is making impact and the question becomes, how will our elected representatives and those who seek our votes step up to meet this moment?”

You don't have to "hold your breath" when a dirty cop is closing your airway with his knee on your throat while strangling you to death. You can't "hold your breath after a dirty cop shoots you in the back multiple times either.

sunluvngal:

Nobody is denying that what happened is despicable.  However, in the one tragedy, it has been noted that he had taken drugs which expanded his lungs and blocked his airways.  Just trying to get the facts straight.  In the other tragedy, the facts are still to be determined.

 

Unfortunately it seems that there was someone in the department that held that information, about the Floyd tragedy, from the public for some unknown reason.  (to date anyway)  Too many hate filled citizens using current problems to continue pouring fuel on the flames.  

 

I repeat...two wrongs, don't make a right.  The violence by the infiltrators (if that's what's going on) needs to stop! It is destroying lives and livelihoods.  One way of stopping that, is for blm leaders to get involved...IF they have nothing to do with the violence, i would think they'd at least be coming out against it. 🤔
