So to my knowledge, BLM began in response to police brutality against black people.
I agree that police brutality is wrong, but when are we going to adress the issues in the black community? 🤔
Why is no one talking about the black on black crimes? The thrash hip hop music promoting sin, sex, drugs, violence, colorism, lust after women and treating them as sex objects which is perpetuating the single parenthood? Why aren't we addressing these issue as a community? Why aren't we protesting their concerts and banning their music? they're causing more negative impact in the black community than these random cops that kill people. There's also a high rate of father absence in black homes, high drop out rate, high abortion rate etc.
Why glorify black on black crimes through music and cry BLM. If we're going to protest and say BLM we need to set an example first.
And I don't understand why it's now a trend to hate the police. Everybody's screaming "Abolish the police" but when there's danger who do you call? Exactly.
There are great police officers just like there are bad police officers.
One bad egg should not make you throw away the whole crate.
People also started acting as if criminals do not exist, as if they deserve some kind of "special treatment", and that's weird. I'm not saying that they should be killed, but be reasonable. Plus don't believe everything you see on the internet/news make sure you know the full story before jumping into conclusions.
This 👆🏽 right here is absolutely horrifying to me. What Is this ?
As a black girl I don’t want to see anyone having to be smaller just to help me feel power.
And let's not forget when BLM made the most mediocre list of demands for white people, like asking them to give up their homes.
Every race since the beginning of human kind has experienced slavery and only one of them is asking for reparation from people who didn't enslave them.
Let's not forget that during the protest, black people destroyed black owned business too. All these for what ? How does this prove that black lives matter ? I see these hypocrites stand up only when it's a white man doing something bad to a black man. You can't fight racism with racism.
This is a twerk video celebrating MLK.
What does Marthin Luther King have to do with twerking? This was really the last straw for me.
Simmons described the video as “advocating for the decolonization of oversexualizing Black women’s bodies to reclaim an ancient sacred dances of liberation and wellness".
This statement makes me feel like my brain commited suicide.
This gives the impression that black women have no self respect at all.
People nowadays look at a black woman and immediately think of twerking. Because people like these encourage the idea that black women have nothing to offer other than their bodies.
And The Black Lives Matter organization is further betraying the movement by promoting such immense disrespect on Dr. King's name, deplorable.
In my opinion BLM is all about fear mongering, power and control.
You don't have to support BLM to believe that black lives matter.
Just because you don't support the movement doesn't make you racist.
Furthermore, I'm not speaking against black people, I'm speaking for black people. BLM is reprehensible because it truly paints a bad picture of the black community. BLM does not represent us as black people.
In the end we're human beings with a sinful nature, no one's perfect, what we need to be preaching here is love.
It’s time we come together for once and stop pointing fingers at each other. It does nothing besides cause division between us.
