The white supremacists explicitly said black lives do not matter, showing their hate:

http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas ... 518853.php

Notably, BLM protesters ripped the U.S. flag to shreds:

Quote:
At one point, Black Lives Matter supporters scrounged up a flag and started gathering lighters. But ultimately they decided to rip the stars and stripes to shreds, waving it along the roadside for passersby on Southwest Freeway service road.


I interpret this as a statement that some in the BLM do not believe the United States, as it is currently structured, can achieve true racial equality.

Also, Pepe the frog is a hate symbol, according to the Anti-Defamation League (mentioned in article).

Maybe they'd replace the flag with one with 50 little black power fists on it if they were running the show.

BLM want to tear down the whole system, and take over at the top with their own batshit regime, so it is unsurprising that they tear apart the flag that represents that which they wish to destroy.

I really wish the Texas Black Lives Matter wouldn't have destroyed the flag, because they certainly had lost public support they doubtlessly had garnered just be protesting the Nazis.

The Nazis in Australia use a caricature of a white rabbit in a similar way

Burning the flag is a common form of protest.

Black Lives Matter threatened a coup if it looks like Donald Trump would win the election. Sorry I can't link as i'm a new member but easy to find on google.

Peaceful group who believes in the democratic process?

"Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a DECENTRALIZED political and social movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience "
FROM
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Lives_Matter
1.BLM is not an organization. There is no leadership.
2. To say that EVERYONE or even a majority of people that think that black lives matter are violent is stupid.
3. Even if all the looters believed that black lives are important does not mean that all those that believe that black lives matter are looters. I realize that this will go over trumper's heads but " All dogs are mammals does not mean that all mammals are dogs.
I am sick of all the self righteous morons that proclaim " all lives matter." If you saw a person being stabbed to death and he was screaming, " my life matters." Would you scream back, " Hey self centered idiot. What about my life? Doesn't it matter? " OR WOULD YOU HELP HIM?

Trump is an America hating pedophile. I would fight him if he once again has the Russians elect him.

Personally. I find any anti-racist slogan that identifies with one race an oxymoron.
I understand how some may be proud of their race (black and proud) however,
i think if people want colour of a persons skin no longer to bear any significance
then it is time that we start to transcend identifying with such minor details as skin colour.

I am not speaking from a racist perspective.

I am speaking from an objective perspective.

I am not saying black lives do not matter

I am saying ALL LIVES MATTER

Om mani padme hum!

I had noticed that...Not sure why the necromancer had to look so far back for a thread about BLM, when many much more recent ones already existed.

Black Americans say, "Black Lives Matter," because in practical reality, they've proven not to. We can say, "All Lives Matter," when they are no longer disproportionally shot, arrested, or just generally hassled by the police just for being black.

origin of the "all lives matter" slogan was from a far right website.

Also the police and FBI have known for a long time that white supremacists pose a more dangerous threat
