I would never go to a BLM protest. I would go to a MLK protest though. They need to read up on his cause and maybe carry the torch he lit. But carry the torch the way he did. That guy rocked.





I've said it before and I'll say it again, MLK would be horrified and outraged by people who identify with BLM. He had issues regulating his own following from internal violence.

Totally agree with you.

because you're just as bigoted.

Um, no, I just hate ignorant rhetoric.



then you should hate your own rhetoric, because its just as bad.

No sir, no. I'm making a very valid point about BLM and you are refusing to acknowledge it. Yay for you...

Perhaps when people stop wanting to be victimized they will empower themselves to become something by hard work and no hand me downs.

That is what America has become now, People blame each other for their shortcomings but do not do a darn thing to fix their personal problems, because is better to blame somebody else for it.

This what a nation of an entitlements generation looks like.

Listen up people!




You have an issue with a thread and/or it's title? You ALERT it....you do NOT go after the ATS member. You alert it and let the staff take care of it.

You have an issue with a post? You ALERT it.....you do NOT go after the poster! You alert it and let the staff take care of it.

We are not on here 24/7. We are few, you all are many. We literally can not read every thread and post here on ATS. It's is actually physically impossible for us to do that. We are also from all sorts of different time zones. We have lives outside of ATS. Because of that:

If you see something that bothers you, upsets you, or you think we need to take a look at: ALERT IT!

You do NOT go after the other member. You do NOT call them names. You do not act out. Doing so will only land you in trouble with us.

Ashleigh Shackelford is not speaking on behalf of the Black Lives Matter movement, she is sharing her personal bitterness:

The original article Infowars distorted.

It is safe to assume Ms. Shackelford has issues that go beyond the merely political.

My advice to ANYONE who wants to get money from "whitie" is to get a job and draw a pay check. I know jobs are scarce; so if you can't find any kind of honest work, make up your own job. I did that when i was a kid so I could have money to finish high school. Back then nothing was free.
There is always someone wanting something done and "odd jobbing" will usually pay more per week than a regular job.

I have much the same attitude about my own meager possessions as Heston did about his gun. "The only way they can get it is to pry it from my cold dead hands".

You are not any more in a position to dictate what constitutes "work" than others are to demand money from you for nothing. You are treating what was clearly an emotional tirade on the part of an individual as a statement of the political objective of an entire movement.

I'm not sure I understand her position.

If they get those things (and that's all they are - things), it won't do anything to change any of the problems. They will temporarily have some stuff, and because they didn't work to earn it, they won't appreciate it most of them. I see that in certain individuals in my family who are not taught how to value the things they have despite being poor.

And if their complaint is that the big, bad world is racist and that's why they don't have stuff ... having stuff handed to them won't change the so-called underlying reasons why they aren't able to attain stuff. What happens when the stuff they are handed is gone? They will then be back at square one and unable to obtain stuff again.

These demands just reflect how poorly these people have been taught to think. They just want things and don't really seem to have thought about why.

But BLM do in fact exclude white people from some meetings. They have also spoken out against facilities that have banned black only meetings. The exclusion of whites goes far beyond this individuals statements. Struggling to understand how that is not racist.

Saying that the heated opinion of a single individual reflects on "these people" is like saying that one of Donald Trump's brain farts reflects poorly on how white people think.

I was wondering when Donald Trump would be brought into it

As soon as BLM "won" at Mizzou, they set up minority only safe spaces for students and cast out the white students, even the ones who had marched and protested with them the entire way.

They can get very exclusionary, but at the same time, they are also very hostile to those whites who do not support them. Just take a look at their campus work.

You can't reason with people like this. This is eventually what all BLM will believe and expect.

I don't see a positive outcome possible from anything BLM related.

I'm reflecting on Ashleigh's world and thinking.

My remarks should have made that clear. She clearly isn't thinking at all about what she wants if all she can think to do is demand stuff.

Women also hold meetings at which men are not permitted; this is to create a sense of safety so that they can bond. People who feel persecuted tend to do that, you know. I'm quite positive the early Christians in Rome did the same thing.

The article you posted is not the same article as OP has posted.

Why are you trying to twist the story?

This is not right.

Christians in Rome met in secret and likely did not start the meeting and then cast out some of their members over some superficial characteristic or other even though those Christians have been meeting with them and part of them from the start.
