But they do address crime in the black community. It may be focused on systemic racism but there is a concern about overall crime also.

No you should not as black lives matter is an extremist group of radicals consisting of blacks. Most of w hich are there to exploit the protests and use it to loot and steal.Also the causes themselves is very weak and i for one will not protest over any thug who got shot. Also I never understand that really because for example if you knew someone was a serial killler, you would probably want him dead but when it comes to a thug and low life being killed, it's a different story.

I agree but would also like to add that they do not address crimes within black communities, but rather racism within the police force. Michael Brown was defended because he was black, but evidence shows he robbed a store and charged the officer. In the tragic case of the teen shot 16 times, only racism is argued against. Yes true this officer did something disgusting, but we must ask why this teen is walking around on PCP with a knife.

The movement's name is made so that should you disagree with the movement, it is as though you are saying "black lives don't matter". I am not saying that black lives don't matter, but I would say that the movement is based on many assumptions and lies. Many of the people toted as martyred because of their color do not have their full stories disclosed, certain parts purposefully omitted, and in the case where police violence is an issue there is no saying of it is because of color or not. But, because of the many times the cause has said one thing, and evidence saying another, I cannot conclude that this cause could even make a difference if they had actual cases. The people behind the cases also say they want people to pursue the truth and justice as though they are, but almost all of them can be seen as pursuing blood and money. There's too much reliance on emotional appeals and focusing on what we don't know as well, as though the things we don't know keep us from saying that it isn't profiling. Yes, there are cases that I do want to have justice done to, but this cause cannot do them.
