The Black Lives Matter movement needs to rename it's title. The term black in regards to biological entities has no place in classifying a species variation. The correct term it should be changed to is Melanated Lives Matter, as it is the scientific standard to classify an indigenous species various. I'm willing to debate anyone on this matter but I only ask for you to have your argument supported with scientific or anthropological references regarding however your view is. Thanks, Cant Wait ! :)

To start things off ,Yes Black lives Matter Needs a name change, Simply because the term black is outdated.My argument is that the term "black" has no purpose in classifying an organic entity. This method of classification was used by early social darwinists, for racial division and disunity between all people of color. When classifying the pigmented section of Homo-Sapien Sapien, We must instead use the biological term of identifying Africans in America, Melanated Lives Matter. Make sure you can provide valid and scholastic evidence to support your argument.

Okay, so first, melanated can refer to Mexican's, Middle Eastern, or even Asian. For a movement that is promoting rights for Black people, it needs to be specific, we have to know that they are talking about black people. Melanated Lives Matter is too generic of a title. Black is the term that has always been used to refer to those of a darker skin tone. It might not be the best term but it's the term that has been used over generations just as white is used to allude to those of a lighter skin tone. These are the terms that have been used and will most likely not stop being used. Melanated has not been used and will probably never be used because, as I said, it could pertain to someone from Mexico, the Middle East, and even Asia. The terms that have always been used are white and black. You can learn more about Black Lives Matter here: http://blacklivesmatter.com...
Another thing is they are using the term that everybody uses for them. Everybody uses this term and they are using this term to tell everyone, "Well, we, the black people, are not going to stand for this" Using Melanated will not do this or have the same effect that Black Lives Matter does. Here's another part of the same website that explains why Black Lives Matter: http://blacklivesmatter.com... Here's another article explaining how BLM uses in your face tactics: http://www.nj.com...
