"Black Lives Matter" is a very real point. When the statistics show that unarmed whites are being killed at the proper proportion to their ratio in society, then the movement will end. We have to stop a LOT of unarmed black deaths before that happens.   Unless, of course, you would rather just kill more white people but that seems stupid. 


As always, your issue seems to be not BLM but SBLM. Ask yourself, how many unarmed blacks were killed by the police in the last last year in Chicago - and how many were killed by other than police in the last month.

 

BLM is honorable - SBLM is dishonorable. My preference is LM but I can understand BLM in the black community.


I saw something today that reminded me what the Republican Party used to be. The  farewell  speech of Ronald Reagan,  and I saw speeches from  W. Bush. and I felt nostalgic  by those speeches, what has happened to those Republicans?

You have a valid point there.

 

Until police - and other members of law enforcement - local state and federal - with no lawful justification - kill a demographically proportionate number of white people from all walks of life - are not ever held to account for those unjustified killings - and deliberately and blatantly discriminate proportionally against white people - it's obvious that much of our society's standards and practices are obviously quite **bleeped** up...

TRUMP LOSES ANOTHER ONE 

 

 

(CNN) - Several NFL players took a knee, raised fists or did not take to the field while the National Anthem was played Thursday night before preseason games.

 

The actions came weeks after the league shelved its new policy regarding conduct surrounding the anthem until it reaches an agreement with the NFL Players Association.
