It's like the KKK trying to do "community outreach" because of their bad reputation.
BLM owns this now. They are no better than the KKK.
Dosent work like that, cause you and fox news said so lol.

The real issue here isn't that BLM is at fault, it's that they aren't clearly not at fault.
It's hard to say if they are or aren't. It's not like peace is at the forefront of their movement. It's a side note only acknowledged when they start getting heat because something bad happened and they feel the blow back is too dangerous not to distance themselves from it. When they do distance themselves, they say in the most toneless, emotionless, robotic way possible that the movement does not condone such actions. There's no heart, no raw emotions, no disgust over what happened. No sign of contempt for the brutal and violent actions that took place. It's like a fricken service announcement before and interview claiming that the statements of the interviewy does not reflect the opinions of the organization doing the interview.
BLM may claim it's peaceful but it does literally nothing to SHOW it or that it's IMPORTANT to them, and a VITAL and ESSENTIAL part of, and CORNERSTONE to their movement.
It's a barely acknowledged robotic thing only to be pulled out in an emergency.
I'm sorry but that's not enough to convince me peace is a big part of BLM.
