Exactly thank you 🙏
Blacks are killed by other blacks at astronomical rates, yet BLM rarely rears its ugly head during these occurrences.

Reasonably? Insurance estimates of riots between May 26th and June 8th are at 2 billion in damages. Peaceful my ass
What’s even more funny is the vast majority doesn’t support it.
Right, there were peaceful protests and the assholes who will take any opportunity to create chaos.
2 billion in damages in Minneapolis isn’t peaceful.
No it’s about blacks being killed by white cops even if it’s justified. Being killed by Hispanic or black cops doesn’t matter
It's pretty obvious you're utterly clueless about what BLM is, or what it wants, if you think that. I said "cops", not "white cops".
They don’t protest if it’s a black or Hispanic cop that kills them
Yes, they do. Three black police officers (Desmond Barney, Lincoln Lampley, and Anthony Fox) killed George Robinson in Jackson, MS on January 13, 2019. A black police officer (Terrance Mercadal) killed Stephon Clark in Sacramento, CA on March 18, 2018.A hispanic police officer (Jeronimo Yanez) killed Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, MN on July 6, 2016.Three black police officers (Caesar Goodson, Alicia White, and William Porter) killed Freddie Gray in Baltimore, MD on April 12, 2015.A hispanic police officer (Alexander Alvarez) killed Deon Kay in Washington, DC on September 2, 2020 (two weeks ago).An unidentified black police officer contributed to the killing of Daniel Prude in Rochester, NY on March 23, 2020.... and...One of the cops who killed George Floyd was black (Alexander Kueng).There was at least one BLM protest after each of these incidents. In many cases, several. And in the last case, I don't know what to tell you - there have been more than three straight months of nationwide protests over the fact that three cops - one of whom was black - killed a black guy.
Those are just a few examples; I can dig up more if you like. There's also a lot of video, imagery and context around each one I can link you to. Additionally, there's plenty of footage of black cops beating on BLM protesters if you want to see that. Oh, and let's not forget the fact that some protesters *have been beaten by black cops while at a BLM protest*. So maybe you ought to learn a little more about this before you form opinions.
Oops, I repeated myself there a bit. My bad.
I haven’t seen it and it’s nowhere to the extreme. They protest even if it’s a justified shooting. The reality is black lives don’t matter to blacks. If it did they’d target gangs and black on black crime which isn’t anyone’s fault but their own. That’s the biggest killer. There are 400 justified police killings a year. Not even half of those are black. So let’s say that leaves 150 justified a year. Out of 330 million people that’s not even a drop in a bucket.
Well, without going into the no doubt questionable details you've provided, don't you think it's reasonable to be upset when the government deprives us of our rights? Especially when they do it to one group way more than others?Perhaps you're one of the folks who likes having a nice big, strong government there to tell us what to do and make us nice and safe?
Yeah it is but you don’t give a fuck about 1st and 2nd amendment rights and here’s a study that was done
I'll wager I care a whole lot more about the 1st and 2nd amendment than you ever did. Case in point: when large groups of people come together to exercise their right to assemble and make statements, I don't go out of my way to take the government's side against them. If we ever lose our 1st & 2nd amendment rights, it'll be because of bootlickers like yourself who side with the cops against your own people.
We only oppose it when it gets violent
Who is "we"? If you mean Conservatives, then your statement is a blatant lie. They spend every waking moment pearl clutching about something some athlete did or said, and when an actual protest does happen, they move at lightspeed to make up fanciful tales about how violent it is, so they can go back to pretending like the message behind the protest doesn't matter. Just like you're doing here.
So, when the government deprives people of their rights, why do you stand idly by and excuse away the government agents who did it? Do you really love the government that much?
What rights are being denied?
Are you kidding? The 6th and 14th amendments, for starters. Plus a little bit of the 1st amendment, a sprinkle of the 2nd amendment. Oh, and throw in basic human rights that go beyond the Constitution, too. Like, the right to not get murdered by a cop. C'mon, man - is the 2nd amendment the only one you know?
If if you’re so for constitutional rights then why do you vote fore people that make it a point in election speeches to attack them? Again getting “murdered” by a cop isn’t very common at all. It’s sensationalized by the media. There are no riots when a white gets killed. You didn’t give a fuck about the black cop being murdered. Don’t tell me black lives matter to you
Again, you're missing the point. BLM is 100% about black people getting murdered by cops. More specifically, it's about these cops not getting treated the same way everybody else does by the criminal justice system. When a white person gets killed, justice is handed out swiftly and efficiently, to everybody's satisfaction. That little white kid that got killed, for example - the perpetrator was arrested and charged within a very short period of time after the crime occurred. Black cop gets murdered, the police drop everything to go find and prosecute the person who did it.Cop (white, black, hispanic, whatever) kills a black person and it's all hand waving and excuses. Often times it takes months to even open an investigation into the issue. That's what BLM is about.And by the way, I'm not happy about our election choices coming up in November - neither candidate is what I'd call a defender of the Constitution; both have shitty records there. Getting "murdered" is up for interpretation depending on how much you believe killing suspects is "justified" - most of the time, it isn't. And I do care very much when a black cop is murdered. I can be against that and side with BLM at the same time. I can multitask like everyone else.
You just want special treatment
Wanting police to be treated the same as everyone else when they murder somebody isn't "special treatment". It's equal treatment.
Justified killings isn’t murder. It’s self defense or protection of someone else. To you people all blacks are 100% innocent
"justified" means the cop said it was self defense. To you people, government agents are 100% trustworthy.
Not always there’s cameras everywhere these days. 99% they’re justified
Why aren’t there protests when a black cop is killed?
The whole point is cops are supposed to protect citizens. And BLM is about cops disproportionately killing blacks over white smh.A black cop being killed isn’t our problem. We aren’t supposed to protect him. But he is supposed to protect us
So BLM really doesn’t care about black lives mattering
U don’t understand the point. You can’t take the name literally.
Yes I can. What you only care about is blacks being killed by white cops even if the cop has no other choice. You don’t care if it’s an Hispanic or black cop that kills them.
