The National Conference on Preventing Crime in the Black Community grew out of a partnership between Florida Office of the Attorney General and the Florida Consortium of Urban Leagues Affiliates in 1986 to address Black-on-Black crime. This partnership was the predecessor of the Black-on-Black and Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention grant programs administered today by Florida’s seven Urban League Affiliates and Derrick Brooks Charities
The National Urban League is a historic civil rights organization dedicated to economic empowerment in order to elevate the standard of living in historically underserved urban communities. Founded in 1910 and headquartered in New York City, the National Urban League spearheads the efforts of its local affiliates through the development of programs, public policy research and advocacy. Today, the National Urban League has 95 affiliates serving 300 communities, in 35 states and the District of Columbia, providing direct services that impact and improve the lives of more than 2 million people nationwide.

One pathetic little runt does not represent, nor set the boundaries for any collective group of people...
We find yet another case of a fake outrage[/url] manufactured by the BLM movement in an attempt to fuel their own hatred and garner sympathy.

The rhetoric of American right-wing politics is that we are "post-racial" which, by and large, is a big tub of crap.
There is a "White Lives Matter" movement ... it's called American society.
If you haven't, why don't you go read a bit on what the movement actually stands for, rather than going with media reports?
You may be surprised.

Keep up the good work.
What is the deal with the BLM movement anyways? Can anyone here imagine if there was a white lives matter movement? I imagine it would be seen with the same disgust as a white pride parade (though, black pride parades are just fine, aren't they, America?) Who kills the most blacks? If you guessed "other black people," you would be absolutely correct. Racism exists. Black people have been killed by white people.
Yes, the police overstep their bounds sometimes - I'm a white male and I got harassed by police even though I was near my university - so claims of racism are not always true.

Hardly a word gets said about Blacks killing Whites? Really? It comes up in EVERY SINGLE CONVERSATION ABOUT RACE HERE.
Black on Black crime is a recognized issue and different parts of the Black community are addressing it.

Care to take a whack at proving that there are no vigilante actions directed at Black Americans?
case after case of unarmed Black men being shot by police?
Is White crime is at zero? Are there no White on White shootings? Are Drug and alcohol addiction absent in White communities or less prevalent than in Black ones., etc. etc. ?
Who are you to say what constitutes the need for a movement?
Why does BLM threaten you? How does it affect your daily life?
