So you're telling me there isn't a connection between New Black Panther Party Members that support Black Lives Matter and protest with them?
If you're going to go that route, to be consistent you'd also have to believe that Trump supporters are "pretty much an extension" of the KKK since there are some klansmen who support Donald Trump and attend his rallies.

I wonder if Bill first cleared those comments with George Soros.
See, there you go. Saying outrageous and untrue things about someone that I just hate having to defend. But short of you posting up folks in full KKK robes at a Trump rally I just have to call BS on this.
Trump supporters realized she was there to protest, so, as the candidate himself growled to "get them out,” they began to rip her signs, screaming at her and shoving her forcefully, she said. Ringing through her ears, piercing the noise of the crowd, were shouts of "n-----" and "c---,” Nwanguma added.
One Trump supporter was Matthew Heimbach, who doesn’t deny that he joined the shouting at Nwanguma. He wrote on his blog the day after, “We didn’t go to disrupt the event, pitch our own political goals, or pick fights with the protesters.
We attended because we wanted to witness a historic political event." Heimbach, a 24-year-old bespectacled churchgoer, is a white separatist and founder of a white nationalist group, the Traditionalist Worker Party.
Johnson was so taken with Trump that his PAC, the American National Super PAC, recorded in his voice and sent out robocalls in Utah, Minnesota and Vermont after Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, addressed the nation last week in an anti-Trump tirade.
An excerpt from the call said, “This robocall goes out to all millennials and others who are honest in all their dealings. Mitt Romney has viciously attacked Donald Trump. ... The white race is being replaced by other peoples in America and in all white countries. Donald Trump stands strong as a nationalist."
The leader of the American Freedom Party wants to ensure that any Trump supporter who has been “traumatized” and bullied simply for loving their candidate has a number to call to get help. When that hotline bling, that can only mean one thing: Trump supporters seeking emotional help and legal advice from white nationalists. William Daniel Johnson, a practicing lawyer and the leader of the American Freedom Party, told The Daily Beast he plans to launch the Trump Harassment Hotline on Tuesday, a 24/7 service “to help those who are attacked physically and verbally for supporting Trump.”
In a GOP primary that grows uglier with each passing day, the Trump-admiring founder of a neo-Nazi website has called for the execution of the wife of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Writing on The Daily Stormer, founder Andrew Anglin used the dispute over attacks on the wives of both of the leading GOP presidential candidate’s wives to pile on Heidi Cruz, a former Goldman Sachs executive.
Donald Trump Jr. has no problem associating with white supremacists. Trump appeared on white supremacist radio talk show, The Political Cesspool, hosted by known white supremacist James Edwards. Neo-Nazis, KKK leaders, and Holocaust deniers have been among the many guests on this show.
Edwards has no shame admitting his preferential treatment at Donald Trump rallies. The Huffington Post reports Edwards has received an all-access press badge, in addition to VIP parking. James is also allowed to broadcast his radio show live from these rallies.
A Korean war veteran who was filmed repeatedly shoving a black woman in the back to eject her from a Donald Trump rally has said that he 'regrets' his actions and denies that they were racist. Footage shows Alvin Bamberger, 75, pushing University of Louisville student Kayisha Nwanguma out of the political event at Kentucky International Convention Center on March 1. 'I physically pushed a young woman down the aisle toward the exit, an action I sincerely regret,' Bamberger wrote in a letter to Larry Kinard, president of the Korean War Veterans Association (KWVA), Military.com reported.
'This was a very unfortunate incident and it is my sincere hope that I can be forgiven for my actions.' Bamberger, who claims to belong to the Aurora, Indiana, KWVA chapter, says that his actions were not motivated by racism, but that he had become emotional after being shoved to the ground earlier. He also says his response was influenced by 'being caught between' Black Lives Matter protesters and a group of Trump supporters whom he later learned were white supremacists.
Well known is the old English adage that Jesus is an Englishman. But the quaint charm of an assertion like that is missing entirely when one of Donald Trump’s supporters says Jesus wasn’t a Jew. It is a view altogether too reminiscent of Hitler’s conception of Jesus as an “Aryan fighter” who “who took up His position against Jewry.” This new claim comes from Thomas Robb, whom the SPLC describes as “an Arkansas-based Christian Identity pastor and head of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which he took over in the 1980s after the departure of David Duke.”
“Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that,” said Stormfront founder Don Black, who reports additional listeners and call volume to his phone-in radio show, in addition to the site’s traffic bump. Black predicts that the white nationalist forces set in motion by Trump will be a legacy that outlives the businessman’s political career. “He’s certainly creating a movement that will continue independently of him even if he does fold at some point.”
Black of Stormfront said Trump's rhetoric has been a boon to white nationalists. “He has sparked an insurgency and I don’t think it’s going to go away,” he told POLITICO of Trump. Black, who said his site receives a million unique visitors a month, said Trump has helped drive a steady increase in traffic in recent months – including 30-40 percent spikes when the businessman makes news on immigration or Muslims – that is compelling him to upgrade his servers.
Rachel Pendergraft, a spokeswoman for the Arkansas-based Knights Party, which considers itself the national standard-bearer for the KKK, said the group encourages its members to engage with their communities through apolitical volunteer work and, at the right moment, steer conversation toward race and “white genocide.” Trump, she said, has offered KKK members a prime opportunity to feel out potential recruits on their racial attitudes. “Right now he is a major talking point. He is in the news a lot.”
Tonight’s broadcast of PBS NewsHour will feature a statement on the outlet’s recent story about the pro-Trump activities of a North Carolina family — a development that follows on the issuance of a second editor’s note in the controversy. As reported by Gawker, the NewsHour story profiled 33-year-old Grace Tilly and her family, though it failed to alert viewers to the meaning of the tattoos on her hands, which Gawker described as “white power” symbols.
As we noted earlier, Tilly’s right hand has Celtic Cross, among the most “commonly used white supremacist symbols,”according to an Anti-Defamation League official consulted by Gawker. Her left hand was emblazoned with “88,” code among white supremacists for “Heil Hitler,” according to the Anti-Defamation League’s website.
Jared Taylor is a believer in what he calls “race realism,” a belief system that includes the idea that people are happier when they can live with only members of their race, and that people of color are endangering the majority that white Americans have held for centuries. He has questioned the ability of black people to live in civilized society, and his website, American Renaissance, says one “of the most destructive myths of modern times is that people of all races have the same average intelligence.” Taylor, a white nationalist, is also an enthusiastic supporter of Republican front-runner Donald Trump. “He is really the first candidate in many years whose policies are not going to kowtow,” Taylor said of Trump. “He has taken a very straightforward position on keeping Muslims out, for example. Can you name a single good consequence of mass Muslim immigration to the United States? I sure can’t!”
The immigration plan is a particular winner with the white nationalists. In a weekly report last week, Rocky J. Suhayda, chair of the American Nazi Party, similarly praised Trump’s immigration policy and attitude. “Americans of ALL races are FED UP with this ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION — so he says that he’ll BUILD a WALL to keep them out! CHEERS! He states that “Political Correctness” is disgusting and it’s time to STOP IT! More CHEERS! He DARES to turn his guns on the paid morons of the system controlled MEDIA! And regular folks LOVE it,” he wrote.
On his podcast, Richard B. Spencer, the president of the white nationalist National Policy Institute, said while what Trump is saying isn’t that different from other Republicans, Trump’s passion “inspired” him.
On the evening of Whitaker’s resignation, Richard Spencer, the founder of the white nationalist think-tank the National Policy Institute, tweeted to plead with Johnson to stop entirely.
At this point, Bill Johnson’s Robocalls are probably significantly damaging #Trump’s campaign. Please Stop!
And when asked whom he would support if something happened to Trump’s campaign, Taylor would not answer. “I realize that the purpose of your article is to discredit Donald Trump by, ‘Look at these wicked horrible people who support him,’” he said, “so I don’t think I would give you any ammunition against any other candidate.”
Its not the police killings that are the root problem. Its the way the black community is engage systemically. In HR speak, laws that technically seem to be nonracially motivated, have obvious adverse impacts that its almost impossible to believe weren't crafted solely for the sake of creating said adverse impact.

OK..I'm ignorant about what "Black Lives Matter" is trying to accomplish. Who are they speaking to and what do they want? Is this some kind of Jesse Jackson reparations for slavery movement?
