I have been seeing a lot of petitions for Congress to see the Black Lives Matter movement as a Terrorist Organization. I personally have no position on the matter but I also found a article stating that Russia is already in movement to put the BLM moment on their "terror list." With the recent violent actions the group has been taking I would be leaning twoard them being seen as a Terrorist Organization
What do you think? Should the BLM be seen as a Terrorist Organization?

The US has a number of different terrorist lists but all of them I can find [1] [2] [3] only contains groups that have conspired to launch violent attacks.

While it is true that there have been several attacks that are generally related to BLM none of them can be specifically linked to the leadership of BLM and are instead people who followed the often violent rhetoric of the BLM movement. While it could be possible to designate them as some kind of hate group or a group that preaches violence however they simply do not fit in with other terrorist organisations.

I look forward to my opponent's response.
