Its spelled rhetoric, that began the day blacks were brought here against their will and made to slave for the whiteman.

As far as the movement itself, it formed the day George Zimmerman got off for murdering Treyvon Martin.

You should be--even just by going to Wikipedia and typing in "Black Lives Matter," it would get you started (it explains the beginnings of the group). Black Lives Matter also has a website, if you're not feeling too lazy to research them at their source.

Well, it is "it's," not "its" (amongst other grammatical errors in your sentence structure), and remember that slaves were sold to the slave traders by black Africans, too--they condemned their own into slavery to make a buck.

Slavery was an ugly chapter in American history, but don't pretend like there isn't plenty of blame to go around all over concerning the slave trade--or is that too inconvenient of a truth?

Well, it wasn't murder, but you're right, that is the event that set off the BLM group (although it formed prior to the verdict, from what I understand), and was the first of many where BLM wrongfully claimed that the killing of a black person was unjustified. Don't get me wrong--some of what they protest was unnecessary and illegal killing (IMO), but the first two that really catapulted the movement (Martin and Brown) were both justified self-defense shootings, as indicated by both the evidence and the verdicts.

Well, unless one is ignorant to the laws, that is, then of course they are murders. But I tend to go by what the law says and what he evidence proves (or doesn't prove, as some of the cases may be).

Whites couldn't get close enough to villages to capture blacks in Africa, they had to use blacks, who yes volunteered for the miserable task of mass abductions, just as we find Muslims today to conquer other Muslim countries.

Ain't greed grand?

Replying twice...

Mm hmm, police investigating themselves, there was no 'verdict' (just an announcement in Browns case), it goes way deeper than just two incidents, more like the straw that broke the camels back.

If we consider the latest two, shot while sitting in car reaching for wallet and executed while pinned to the ground, we see nothing has changed, except now, theres no longer even a show trial to convince people theres no injustice.

And as far as that is concerned the justice system itself has been broken for some time.

Keep rolling with that lie which was proven in the trial, which I bet you never payed attention to. I bet you bought into that 5-6 year old picture the media kept throwing in our face too.

"Lucy, you've got some 'splaining to do!"


Department of Justice unit helped organized BLM protests


Justice Department’s "Community Relations Service" responded following Trayvon Martin’s shooting death by helping "organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman,



These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman," president Tom Fitton states in a news release. "My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially-charged demonstrations."

I'll be honest--I've nearly quit paying attention anymore because I'm so numb to the cries of racism and excessive force that it's making me want to ignore these incidents. But that said, I agree that the fellow who was down on the ground was shot, that appears to be excessive force. The other one, I'm on the fence about because all I've heard from the officer's mouth in the video is that he told the driver not to do exactly what the driver did (reaching back toward his waistline). When someone tells an officer than they have weapon, legally or not, that person needs to let the officer dictate the movements of the person at that point--for the safety of the officer.

I do agree, though, that we need to return to training our officers to fire when a gun is seen in instances like this. I don't think that he needed to be shot, but I also think that the driver could have been much more intelligent with his actions and we most likely wouldn't be discussing his death today.

ETA: I have courtroom and trial-prep experience, and I followed both the Martin and Brown cases very closely. The evidence showed that neither Zimmerman nor Wilson did anything wrong, according to the law, when they fired their weapons which killed Martin and Brown, respectively. You can disagree if you want, but opinions don't really matter at this point, concerning those two cases.

And keep in mind that Wilson was never convicted criminally NOR civilly. Two separate investigations into the incident, and neither showed evidence of wrongdoing. That's pretty telling, especially when it is the DOJ saying there's no evidence of wrongdoing.

Blacks are tired of a lot of things. Even infiltration into their movements, sure.

Lots of that going on. I won't go into MLK and the Federal-BI.

You mean the lie that Zimmerman was defending himself from an unarmed kid that ran away?

Explain it to the people whose kids get 20 years for selling crack while Zimmerman gets acquitted for murder.

In his own precinct? How fair a venue was that? Let alone the way the DA steered the Grand jury 'investigation' to-- 'nothing to see here, move along' decision.

Some grammar nazi I am. I shouldn't have spoken, most of my posts have an edit for spelling.

'Spank' monkey pointed out my grammar and sentence structure to me, too.

So, I see...you'll ignore all of the evidence and just live behind the wall of your conspiracy theory on this one.

I guess having a discussion about it is a moot thing to do, then.

Only to passive-aggressively point out the ridiculousness in doing so to the OP.

Well yah, no problem. We were discussing the way some cops ask to see ID and then shoot people when they reach?

From another thread, maybe you sawer it. The cop even lies afterward ...

Say it with me "Deny ignorance"...
Can we do that?
Funny we never hear you all commenting on the atrocities of the Muslim slave trade that has chained and oppressed more individuals that any other source throughout human history. But I digress...

Blacks may have been brought here by some "whiteman".
But they were captured and chained originally by other black men by the thousands. White slavers had a 3 month life expectancy in Africa because if disease. I assure you more slaves were enslaved by their own kind...
Besides 1% of Americans owned slaves during slavery.
Can we drop the RHETORIC already?...

Granted George Zimmerman is a jerk.
But Treyvon would have killed him by bashing his head on the curb if he hadn't shot him.
By that definition Treyvon should also carry the same label.
But of course that wouldn't fit your narrative. Getting so tired of these arguments...

Yeah, that one seems to be excessive, but it's neither any of the ones that we discussed, nor either of the two that I claimed were falsely flagged by BLM as being murders of black men.

So, are you implying that this is a tactic used by racist LEOs to shoot black people? That appears to be the tone that you're setting, and I just want to ensure that I understand your mindset on this.

Also, I could show you tons of examples where black people are asked for IDs, they show them, and they go on their happy way after being cited for or warned about an issue. Are you saying that the dramatic minority of interactions between LEOs and citizens should be the standard by which we measure all law enforcement? That's where BLM seems to be taking their message, and you seem to be an apologist for them, so I'm just trying to connect the dots the best that I can, here.

You need to open a history book sometime. Those people were slaves for other blacks before they became "white man's slaves". In fact they were slaves for every group on this planet, as white people were also slaves to every group on the planet. Stop using your pathetic grasp of history to justify your racist hatred.

Becuuuuz really, if a column of white people went around village to village abducting people the word might spread? They had drums...

We still enslave people today only now we call them migrant workers. So instead of stealing them from their homeland and selling them at auction to the highest bidder we truck them to corporate wherever, keeping it on the down low.

And I 'tons' where they don't. Love that word 'tons', it be-lies so much. First of all 'tons' of blacks, minorities and impoverished are profiled way more than 'other' citizens.

Second, tons of backs populate the prisons for tons longer sentences and tons more minor offenses.

Then you have the tons of complaints how come tons of black yoots are sentenced to twenty years selling crack while take your pick tons of cops don't even get charged when they shoot people unjustly. Not_Even_One.
