What is your opinion on the Black Lives Matter movement?

I am thoroughly against it and believe it is a rather hateful movement of violence and whiny sad people who's movement stemmed from an actual problem the police had with all races then blew into a movement of angsty people wanting a rebellion.

Dont all lives matter? People who think this violent movment is helping African Americans are sadly mistaken. When Martin Luther King jr. was trying to get change did he roit? Did he sat fire to police cars? Or course not and the conditions for black Americans were much worse back then. They were sparyed with high powered hoses somtimes to death just because they were walking peacefully and yet people in Martin Luther King's movment never resorted to violence.

Yes, all lives matter, but we are focusing on the black ones now because they are the ones facing the current issues.

More specifically All lives matter means that there really is no such thing as a black life or a white life or Latino life or anything else. You cannot lump people into groups by the color of their skin even though it's done everyday. A poem by a youtuber named Prince Ea displays this perfectly. It's called I am not black, you are not white. Any support of the See More▼

Ok, let me just say that hispanic people in america are facing more racial abuse from the police than black people or any other race. All lives matter doesn't mean black and white, all lives matter means hispanic, asian, native american, pacific islander, african-american, caucasian, EVERYONE.

NO, he didn't. MLK was even against other more extreme methods of getting his point through, like Malcolm X's methods.

And his movement did more for race relations than anything else.

And another thing. Racism only exists because races are viewed as different the black lives matter movment is only setting African Americans and other races apart causing more problems.

The black lives matter movement is a very good community and im proud to be part of it. I havent really seen anyone in the community behave in the way you explained.
Marvele
They shut down a toronto gay pride parade because it had a police float. Then they wouldn't release the parade until their demands were met. Individuals within are probably good people but the organisation as a whole is just full of assholes.

I believe it's a necessary movement in a world like this. It's a great act, especially for all blacks who have been oppressed by whites. In my opinion, whoever made this is/was bright.

It's needed considering what a messed up justice system America has

When white cops stop killing innocent black people, then this movement will stop
Marvele
But I do agree with the messed up justice system. You're cops are unnecessarily violent to EVERY race, which is why i feel that All Lives Matter is better.

How about when black cops stop killing white people? This movement has turned into a violent one and fails to include other ethnic minorities. Thoughts?

I believe that black lives matter blacks are shot by police more then any other race in America each year, yes I do believe all lives matter the BLM movement is not saying that all lives don't matter they are just saying stop harassing young black boys,men,women and girls and shooting them for no real reason. It means that Black people deserve to live equally with all other races in peace and harmony without having to worry about your young black son being shot by someone for See More▼

Good concept, there's easier ways.

Yeah, I kinda agree. It started out rather noble-like but then turned bad.

There's whites & blacks,
Then there's the others like "So, I'm just going to be me. Y'all go
Do your own thing."
I wish the world was like those other races.
