frequent blm protests that are pretty much all peaceful and orderly. your arguing based on bullshit lies. getting tired of these nonsense accusations with no links to actually show anything.

frequent BLM protests, vs. 1 random rebublican protest. it's not the same, it's not even close.

are you kidding? Republicans protests all the time. some of them turn violent. just look at all the terrible shit tea party supporters have done.

they are Republicans. they protest violently. sometimes they stomp on the heads of women they have pinned to the ground.

by your logic, if part of a movement turn violent then the whole movement is dangerous. some Republicans turn violent. clearly Republicans are dangerous.

what violent rebublican protests? rebublican almost never protest. BLM has even taken over the microphone at sanders/hillary speeches

so Republicans are a dangerous movement because some Republicans protests are violent?

their protests have been very lawful and peaceful. this is an outright lie.

the furgeson protests happened before blm got organized, and were caused by local outrage immediately following the deaths, not a nationally organized movement.

I'm not talking about social media. I'm talking about the violent and unlawful protests.

why? cause some trolls on social media started spewing hate? you do realize that half of social media is hate spewing trolls ON EVERY SIDE OF EVERY DEBATE!

are you suggesting that there have never been any hateful and dehumanizing posts against black people before AND after the blm movement? if you are judging a group based on its social media posts, then white America is by far the most hateful divisive and violence inspiring group. you hypocrite.

BLM is mostly an ideology.

the topic focused on the group not the leadership. leadership started fine, but what the group has become is bad.

and you can totally quote blm leadership sending that message?

BLM message isn't to help blacks and protect blacks. let's get that straight. their message Is one of hate- hate towards all cops. they are part of the problem, and creating more divide.

and how about the people killed at the traffic stop, or the guy killed over loose cigarettes who was not cooperating, but in no way violently. just backing away with his hands up.

or the guy killed by the cop who said he was going for his taser and dragged him in his car.... which was a total lie based on his own dashcam.

I honestly don't know why Michael brown was the posterboy, that was a bad choice. but it isn't about 1 person but a consistent string of fatalites. that's what made it a real issue, consistency.

Unarmed canr be dangerous. I swear the DOJ said Brown was going for his gun

And is that justification to make a voice of hatred.

BLM is nothing but the new KKK. They aren't spreading a peaceful message. Not even the most peaceful protests are "peaceful" if you look at it in retrospect... the message behind BLM is promoting more violence and chaos. BLM is an excuse to riot, and burn buildings and at most kill cops. Innocent cops are being killed. One's who aren't even the least bit racist. And you wanna tell me that this is a meaningful message. that this promotes any good in the world. anyone calling racism nowadays is the racist themselves. people die everyday. no matter the skin color. we are all one race. and that's the human race. BLM doesn't prove anything! and only promotes more violent outbreaks.

there are extreme blm supporters say hateful things on social media.... there are also lots of people saying extremely hateful things about them, and about black people in general, even well before blm became a thing

please cite a steady stream of unarmed white man killed by cops. I'd be surprised if you found even one.

cops aren't the problem, procedures are. unless we're talking about some southern rural small town, most likely the cops are not racist.... but keep listening to your nonsense right wingers tell you what liberals think.

BLM may have a good message, but that message is being overshadowed by the voice of the group, the protesters. They spread hate and violence, and they have lost control of the group. It no longer represents what it should.

There are racist cops. There are unjust shootings. White people die. Black people die. Blacks overrepresent violent crime.

but isn't the point that they are being victimized? isn't that the whole point of the movement?

if cops are killing civilians, and they all happen to be from one particular group, don't you think belittling them and saying that everything is fine instead of acknowledging and addressing the problem the real cause of the fertile ground for violence and racist hate?

It is disorganized with no message of benevolence, only victimization. And this is fertile ground for violence and racist hatred.
