Where are the blacks speaking out against the "gangsta" culture. I'm listening.



Have you looked? Probably not, otherwise you'd find the answer to your question.

If a logical grievance causes a KILL it is no longer any form of logic but a divisive tool,by those who publically espouse the kill.

Does that apply to both police and BLM/supporters?

I asked if you think they may have a reasonable grievance in cases of unprofessional police conduct?


I don't know. It would be wrong of me to assume that I know how BLM thinks.

They may see a simple arrest of someone breaking the law as wrong. Obviously I can't agree with that.

This guy for one.


You didn't answer the question. You showed one guy with a record.

Who are career criminals?

If a cop murders someone that MUST be a given.
But then again there is the nasty issue of CATCHING them and the corruptive support of the officers involved.
ADD to that the meat grinders of the larger gang plagued cities,I wouldn't live in one as a result.
THE people who do, are as MAD PEOPLE to us outside them sometimes,then we both get upset when the assumptions of our own ideals are defined incorrectly by the other.
WE agree otherwise of course.

I didn't ask you how BLM thinks.

I asked if you think they have a reasonable grievance in cases of unprofessional police conduct occurs?

Can we not support the police and also hold them accountable?

So you would agree that we can support law enforcement, and also support those that fight against their potential corruption?

I support BLM's right to protest.
I support police that perform professionally.

This has a lot of responses that I haven't gotten to, so forgive me if this has already been elucidated (which it most likely has), but I agree with your premise in general terms.

Police are an important aspect of our society, they have a dangerous high stress job and we should definitely support them in the noble pursuit of their duties.

At the same time, I have grown outraged by the videos that I've seen of incredibly cruel, incompetent, or even murderous cops killing black men. Outraged. In this way, yes, I absolutely agree that black lives matter...absolutely.

I suspect that the push back that you'll get from your premise is the notion of supporting BLM as an organization, because some are going to be unable to do that due to the behavior of that organization (not that ideal! That's an important distinction). BLM does not represent me in my anger at the abuse of black men by police, but my anger exists and persists all the same.

Peace...

Then you are not all that unreasonable.

BLM has a logical grievance and the police deserve our support.

We should hold them equally accountable?

Very well said.

The point now becomes why we are willing to address the violence of one and not the other.

That moment where BLM defenders 'argument' falls apart ?

This is it.

You make it sound like if you don't support BLM, then you are for racist cops.

The people who were actually wronged by the police have a grievance. Everyone else has an agenda.

Who was actually wronged though?

I'm not really seeing anyone wronged - - except maybe the police.
