Right...So if Black people chant "BLACK LIVES MATTER" they are seen as revolutionaries and an inspiration.
But if white people chant "WHITE LIVES MATTER" it is seen as a mockery to "actual movements" this bullshit needs to stop.
What do you think WhiteLivesMatter was created in response to? What do you think its name is a reference to? Do you also take the ClownLivesMatter movement seriously?
The reason people don't acknowledge this movement isn't because of some oppression against whites, if that's what you're thinking. And why would this movement even NEED to be taken seriously anyway? If people don't want to take the BLM movement seriously, why would they want to take this one seriously?
@cameron83: well when BLM write "kill all white people", its expected for alot of individuals to think that's their intent. To only raise awareness for black lives because of a few boneheaded dumbasses that took their job or their position too far.
BLM was intended to be a peaceful protest with a goal of insuring equality for everyone..i am sure it was. However, its ruined.
No one takes them seriously. They need to be eradicated as a group before something bad happens. I am not referring to them being the culprit either.
To the point though - No lives matter. Why does anyone want to matter in this sinking ship?
To be fair, I don't think it's fair to say that all of its members believe such things, or that all of its members hate all cops, or that all of its members are violent, etc etc (not saying that was your point, but that's what some believe). And if we go with the more ridiculous, extreme accusations thrown by republicans, I also don't believe that they support ISIS.You are definitely right, their name is tarnished, and these things can only happen so many times before they stop being a coincidence and reflect on the movement. I just don't know if I will characterize all of its members as rioters and looters and thugs like many people do (although, by no mistake, that has kinda come to characterize this movement). It's like characterizing all cops as racist or all/most white people as racist because of the fact that many are (if that makes sense).
I guess that's a little bit of a nitpick of mine from your comment, and I believe that I've said this before, there's not much disagreement. I wouldn't say "They need to be eradicated as a group", but something definitely has to change. There are many attitudes/beliefs held or tolerated by a lot of people in society that, at times, makes me think that racial awareness movements are needed tbh (not really about police shootings, but other issues, especially ones broader in scope: like issues related to poverty facing the african american community, racial attitudes and perceptions, etc). I don't think I disagree with much there, ultimately. This post is kinda just a long way of saying that with me going on a little bit of a tangent.
